Whoa, stop student you want a bit stir-crazy. I am that man hits me Seth. Hope you’re having a good day decent day. I hope you are healthy. I hope you are safe. I hope you’re taking this stuff seriously. So anyhow, I think I need a bit of a haircut. I don’t think that’s going to happen for quite some time. I want to talk to you today about. Planting seeds doing so the number one most important thing. I think you should be doing that was planning sees I’m going to tell you exactly what I mean why it’s important. Hang in there cat listen. I forgot what I was going to say there two types of students. We got sort of these motivated student to get stuff done who are on time who brush your teeth when they need to do they make their bed. They put their dishes away when they need to they do the responsibilities when they have homework to go home. They want to get it done. They even start their homework, like right when the teacher handed out those start working on it right there in class, you know, they get things turned in on time. Then I got sort of these unmotivated students students like me who starred with this thing of executive function where they got a bunch of Lathe missings incomplete zeros or is doing test corrections their parents or he’s on the back and I like leave me alone. I got this is why don’t you trust me. I’ll do it later. I’ll do it tomorrow. I’ll do it in 5 minutes. I don’t need to do it, you know. So anyhow, I have sort of these two types of students. I am the one who struggles of the executive functions off in if you’re watching this you probably are too now. The people who generally get stuff done. Like I’m not worried about them. Their parents are not worried about their getting the things done that need to get done. And the good thing is is that they’re going to be able to really create what they want to do in the future most of them. They’re going to be able to have goals and reach him the problem with you and I is that we start with this thing called executive function. This is no joke. Okay, we’re going through this pain damn thing. We’re going through this really scary time. It is really bizarre time. And the inclination is is for us to chill to take some time. We brought, you know, it’s the end of the school year. We really need time to decompress relax, enjoy the weather and all the stuff but we also need to take time to do the things I need to be to get done and what happens with us as we have so many excuses so that we don’t take action and then we put ourselves in a position where when we do take action we do the Least possible that we need to do. We are cutting Corners were just doing what we need to do to get our parents upper back or get the teachers off her back or be done with the class or get the thing done. And the quality is very diminished really challenged you here in this video is this student? This is a time to not do that. This is a time to plant seeds planting seeds mean this is an investment in your life and your future but not only is this an investment in your life in your future the more you plant seeds for yourself to have an awesome life. The more you build a great life yourself the more you’re going to be able to help all the people around you your communities the world whatever work you choose to do in this world the better position you will be able to be who you will be to do that stuff. So I love the metaphor of planting seeds because this is a time to plant seeds plant seeds and high quality work plan season overcoming your own resistance and procrastination and excuses plant seeds in challenging yourself plant seeds in setting up structured time for you to focus and study and plant seeds in terms of resisting the temptation to use Electronics when they’re just a distraction or keeping you from really growing into becoming the person you want to be and stuff like that planting seeds when we don’t plant seeds The Garden of our life just gets overrun with weeds and when weeds take hold metaphorically and literally when weeds take hold their very very very very difficult to eradicate and in your life. What weeds are is that when you become an adult if you don’t plant the right seeds in the weeds take over when you’re not at all. It will impact your relationships negatively. It will impact your career negatively. It will impact your finances. It will impact you being able to reach your dreams go for. Your goals it will impact every single area of your life negatively. If it gets overrun by weeds, the weeds are the problems in life and they will get exacerbated and bigger if you don’t plant seeds now, this is the opportunity now where you’re planting seeds in your life, you know, you have your Math Science Social Studies Reading Writing art creativity just stuff for yourself your own personal projects, whatever your own personal learning your own music and whatever when you plant seeds that means that you’re taking actions that’s helping you develop and grow a big life a good life a life where you have choices possibilities opportunities doing this video. I just want to encourage you you’re going to have that you had sort of like the angel and devil on your shoulders, you know, you sort of have that one is over. That’s why I know procrastinate blame everybody else blame your parents. They’re bugging you. They’re annoying blame the teacher for not being interesting enough blame this and we want To find excuses know I’ll do it later. I’ll do them five minute. We want to not take action. So that’s sort of the ones I then we have some of that angel side that’s going look you got this now. It’s not fun all the time. But you’re planting seeds. This is for your future and this is for you to be able to become the best version of yourself to help other people and other things in this world, you know, I do the right thing to do the say to the challenging thing do the stuff that you don’t feel like doing you no get it over with get it done early start early. I get prepared. I’m ask for help a blah blah blah, you know use your plan our usual organizer. Look at your portals communicate with your teacher always try to better yourself. So they’re sort of those two parts of us that are sort of the you know, this voice is really loud and then often times that sort of wizards telling you the right thing to do is really quiet. You know by the other boys play video games get on social media hang out with your friends. Probably about forget about the covid-19 restrictions. It’s okay. So you don’t have to social distance. Everything’s going to be that part about this is very loud. This is stupid. Why do I have to do that? But you know and that voice that’s our heart or God or Our Truth or deepest truth is often very quiet soften to whisper when the other thing is screaming so part of the art of adulting of becoming an adult to be up gain wisdom of being mature, you know, if we want to be treated like adults we want to be treated like a miniature we have to act like I’m part of that the key to doing that is learning how to listen to The Whisper and learning how to listen to our highest sell sandwiches. So with that just want to encourage students. My name is of Perler. I’m going to exact it from Checotah in Colorado. Now struggling students navigate this thing called education want to encourage you so that they can have a great future to plant seeds that you have a great future plants. Future plant seeds in your future plant seeds in your future have a fantastic day hyper a healthy safe and feel connected to that people that you care about thicker.
