Show Notes

Who said it…

  • “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.” -Opening lines from Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens


  • “The linear life is dead,” says Bruce Feiler, author of Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age (Penguin Press, 2020). His data show that people go through three to five “lifequakes,” massive life changes with aftershocks that can last five years or more. –ACSD Educational Leadership
