Here’s a time-honored “gem” that should be revisited regularly by any “future leader” who strives to grow in this era of constant change and challenge.
“The Parable of the Pebbles” by Anonymous
A man was out in the desert when a voice said to him, “Pick up some pebbles and put them in your pocket, and tomorrow you will be both sorry and glad.”
The man obeyed. He stooped down and picked up a handful of pebbles and put them in his pocket. The next day he reached into his pocket and found diamonds and rubies and emeralds. And he was both glad and sorry. Glad that he had taken some and sorry that he hadn’t taken more.
And so it is with education.
