    punishment of failure.  A student may show incredible improvement over time but the F's still count against them.

    Thanks for this reminder though. I often remind myself that photographers often take hundreds of pictures to get one good one.  

    •  Photographer Analogy (0+ / 0-)

      Is pretty spot on.  I'm also an amateur photographer and there are days when I'll take 800-1,000 shots (especially if I'm trying to catch birds in flight) and only "get" about 10.  

      You miss 100% of the shots you never take, is what I heard someone said.

      GOD! Save me from your followers.
