“Where are my classes held and how will I get there in time and be prepared to learn?”
This may seem like an odd question – a little too obvious. However, I think it is CRITICAL as it revolves around the object of the exercise. This question “helps keep the main thing the main thing”.
And – it is important to the teacher!
Christopher Jensen writes a nice article from the teacher’s perspective. Important to remember that teachers prepare for class and like to get off to a good start.

- Accept the FACT that people who get places on time plan to get there early. (not at the last minute)
In the next few weeks we will be reviewing the best possible questions to ask ourselves. I hope you will join us and more importantly utilize the questions to make your life the way you want it to be.
