Complaining Gets Nothing Done...Call to Action Does
I believe that my story behind the story is that I have been conditioned it is not appropriate to JUST complain. My dad raised us with the mentality that it's one thing to let it out and not bottle things in, but it's another to ineffectively complain. Here's what I mean, if all did was complain about homework when I was younger, he would almost always end the conversation with, "And what are you going to do about it?" Now, I'm not saying at 15 I enjoyed that response, or even now, but I feel that he did and does have a point. If I am going to complain about how terrible or awful the professional developments I have been to are, that's fine, but what am I going to do about that? Complaining gets nothing done, action does...hence, call to action. I believe that if I feel strongly enough to ramble on and on about how terrible something was then it deserve my time and effort to make it better for myself, fellow staff and especially my students.
