This week's Pause for Thought is about enthusiasm. Being enthusiastic means more than being just "rah, rah!" at a big game or competition. While it is important to cheer on your team mates, that's not the sole idea behind being enthusiastic.
As a learner, being enthusiastic means being interested in learning. It means going that extra distance to answer those nagging questions about a topic you've learned in or outside of school. Enthusiasm is infectious. It builds bridges, and results in action.
Be enthusiastic about something which makes this world better.
I chose this video because it is enthusiasm in the form of a small boy. What an effort he made and he didn't give up - and what about that cheer he gave at the end. When we are enthusiastic, we get that extra joy of a job well done.
So, thinking about your learning, what are you enthusiastic about? Why are you enthusiastic about it? What have you learned by being enthusiastic about your chosen topic?
