I hope you have had a productive but somewhat restful weekend.
For my “Tip of the week” I would like to share a thought that may be somewhat controversial. The thought of failure will always send a shiver of trepidation through some people. No one wishes to fail at anything, for fear it may have an impact on one’s academia, work, or personal life.

It was used in every school I have ever worked in to remind the students to keep trying.
I had my own that I liked to use to keep students working on their assessed pieces of work. It went like this.

Have a great week.
