|New Browns Helmets|
In light of this news I have officially decided to rescind my dedicated allegiance to the Browns and change the course of my families fan history. Being new to the Nashville area my family is now all in on the Titans. Now I realize this may not be much of a step up, but last weekend I heard Dave Ramsey on the radio say if you wouldn't buy the stock at what you could sell it for currently then sell. When it comes to the Browns I think I speak for most when I yell, SELL, SELL, SELL. I am tired of being a part of a fan base that is always proved wrong when we say "it can't get any worse". The Titans stock is low at the moment, so I will buy low and hey, "it can't get any worse" right?
I don't want to end up like the man who requested Cleveland Browns pallbearers in his will so they could "let him down one more time". True StoryHow does this apply to educational technology? Well I could go on ranting for awhile, but let me make a loose connection since this is an educational technology blog.

Inspire Change because you have the vision to lead. Don't inspire change because you are misguided and doomed to FAIL. Leaders are needed in the realm of Educational Technology. There are many options, many pathways, many tools, tricks, and tips. Jumping to the latest and greatest is not always wise. Giving up on decisions you researched and planned too soon can lead to a pattern of indecisiveness if you are not careful. (Browns take note) If you always think the next option will be better, than you never take the time to develop what you currently have and that can be dangerous. If you jump ship too many times you forget which direction you are going and your passengers end up lost and confused. Having a solid vision and knowledge base to lead yourself, your classroom, your department, your institution, and your community in the right direction is critical.
"Where there is no vision, the people perish" ~Proverbs 29:18
