I would be the first to admit that I sometimes struggle to keep things in perspective. There have been many occasions when I have wanted to shout because of the frustration that I feel when I can’t persuade members of staff, students or the local authority to even try new things. It can feel like a personal slight – especially if you have put a lot of work into a project. Being passionate about developing ICT is all well and good, but maybe there are more important things in life.
Some of you may have already heard about Sam Berns - he is a remarkable young man who refuses to be defined by illness. His presentation to TEDxMidAtlantic is humbling and makes you wonder if your own priorities are right. Maybe though, like Sam, we should decide what our goals are, refuse to be put off and find the solutions.
