A Thanksgiving Post for 101 Teachers in My Life

Gratitude - TdayI enjoy making lists.

The list I want to reveal to you this Thanksgiving Day is my Gratitude List of 101 Teachers who have influenced my life and reminded me of the importance of being a lifelong learner. 

This partial list is alphabetized by first name.  Many of my Teachers are still living and some have passed on.

I consider this a “partial”  Gratitude List because I’m absolutely certain that I’ve overlooked lots of people who have had deep influences on my personal and professional life.  Forgive me if you are one of those people.

If you’ve taught me something, but don’t see your name on the list, again please forgive my oversight and help me complete my list by commenting & sharing what you feel you’ve taught me.

Sound fair enough?

My purpose in sharing my 101 Teachers list is for you to create your own.  I encourage you to make a list of your Teachers and share it publicly as a declaration … just like I did.

The simple act of writing the names and what you’ve learned will put a smile on your face and make you feel great.

This list 101 Teachers is alphabetized to the best of my ability by first name.  Each Teacher appears without any order of importance, but you can look at this list as having a one-hundred-and-one way tie for First Place :-)

Well there you have it – my the list of 101 Teachers I’m most grateful for this Thanksgiving Day.

I have no doubt I’ve failed to list many dozens or even hundreds of Teachers who have impacted my life.  If you’re one of them, please comment & share what you’ve taught me in the Comment Box below.

What To Do Now: Make your own list of Teachers.  Do as I did.  I started with 10, then it went to 25. Then 50 … and then I had to make one hundred and one.

I suppose I could write a 1001 Teachers list, but that would be a topic for a new book, so I’ll leave it to 101 for now :-)

For now, I’ll simply leave you with two words: Happy Thanksgiving.
