Spring Break is here. My students are on overload. They have been performing a lot, as well as auditioning for DMA programs, summer festivals and orchestra jobs, interviewing for internships and jobs on top of all their schoolwork. We began our last class before Spring Break with a check-in on what’s working.
What’s working is a great question because you focus on the positive aspects of your life. It is another way to change your perceptions and use the forces of positive energy to motivate you.
Here’s the way it works:
1. First you identify what is working in your life.
2. Then you figure out what about it works, analyzing the steps you took to create your success.
3. Finally, you apply your methodology to areas of your life that are not working as well so that you can overcome your challenges.
Let’s take a look at what is working from my class.
