The real game at play is celebrating the “infinite” one at play. Are you studying a STEM subject at University? More “players” welcome!
For those who have read Simon Sinek’s “The Infinite Game” I like to have our team see the lives they’re leading can be likened to playing in a game that could be considered infinite. At RTL, we celebrate taking up opportunities and growth. It’s not about winning that is important, but it is about showing up and being the best version of yourself. My team and our journey have taught me it’s not the outcome that determines our worthiness. Our best is enough. How did education become so focused on outcomes and not people?
I am deeply grateful for the many people on my team that help us be the change we want to be in education. Last night we had people join for the very first time and others live Merv Stewart that have been with me at RTL for over 8 years now.
Raj Murugan and Monique Lautee who would have thought or believed we would be where we are last night when we started hosting STEM workshops out of BOSCH back in 2017. We would not be here without you. Since then, every year you continue to welcome “new” players on to our team and make them feel so welcome. Some stay for a short time and others stick around for a long time. For how long, is not what is important, all contribute in their own unique way, all bring a unique genius to the work of RTL.
That was my reflection on last night, one of deep gratitude for a team that is united by purpose, for making a difference in the lives of young people and helping me achieve a dream that can only be achieved by our collective input and certainly not any one person.
If you’re studying, particularly those studying a STEM subject at university and you would like to join our team of facilitators at RTL, please don’t hesitate to reach out and see if what we do at RTL is a “good fit” for you.
