Many years ago an older (and wiser) friend of mine said, “there is nothing good but the best”. Not sure at this point what exactly he referred to, but I am positive this expression can (and should) be applied to many areas in our lives. Even the ones which are entertaining in addition to being educational – like Tango classes.
So once I came across this quick, fast, fun, and smart talk by Shawn Achor (on TED.com), I just had to make this short post. Its basic premise can be best described by this quote:
“If we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average.” (Shawn Achor)
Which made me think of Argentine Tango classes I teach at OUMA (now with Rosa Steen) – every effort is made to make them Not average (or boring). While not everyone may appreciate or even like this effort – after all these are just dance classes – those that do will find that the outcome is well worth their time (and a bit of money) invested.
Please click on the image below to give it a good listen, then do it again once or twice, as Shawn talks fast, and some nuances might escape us the first time. Then join our 8-week Beginner (Level 1) Tango class in Atlanta.
You just might find your happiness there…
