I have long known that I don't fit very nicely into a mold. For example, as an 30-year educator, I have been around long enough to see many "trends" in the business emerge, fade away and re-emerge (usually with a new name). One of the longest lasting "trends" involved identifying the type of "learner" a student was, and then teaching according to the individual type (visual, auditory, kinesthetic etc.) To demonstrate these differing types, we teachers were given the opportunity to identify our own learning styles...well, I basically flat-lined. Now, some wonderfully gracious workshop leaders suggested that I was a gifted learner who could learn regardless of how the material was presented (what a crock that was!) You see, I just don't fit nicely in a mold. With that in mind, we move to the heart of this post, it comes from an old Jewish proverb that states: "Man makes plans and God laughs." For many people, long detailed plans must occur prior to any and all events. Well, I like to plan, on the other hand, I like nothing better than for someone to suggest going somewhere or doing something "right now..." I'm off! So I guess that makes me both a planner and spontaneous...see no good fit.
