What We’re Working On

Nearing the end of Ron Clark’s The Essential 55, we’re challenged to be martial artists who live with integrity. We’re encouraged to be straightforward individuals who tell the truth — no matter the circumstances. Honesty is critical; it builds trust and fosters understanding.

The other lesson is “Carpe Diem.” No matter how hard you train, you’re only going to live once. This rule is to “seize the day” and live life to the fullest. Robin Williams encouraged his students to “Carpe Diem” in the movie Good Will Hunting. Watch the clip and then make your own life extraordinary.

Only the story of the future president admitting to axing the tree and being applauded by his father for his honesty influenced children’s impulse to tell the in a Canadian research team’s study.
