With the SuperPower comes the teeny-tiny little blindspot. Yours? Routine – dull, dull, dull! You get restless in your course creation, especially if you have to repeat a task several times, such as uploading videos. Unfortunately there’s no way to get a course out there without some process repetition, so see if you can break it up somehow!
Perfectly Suited To Teach
Anything that involves an element of individual expression. This could be traditional art and craft pursuits, or perhaps some form of creative writing. Even if the subject isn’t creative, the way you teach it definitely will be!

Forgetting a crucial detail – because, let’s face it, who has time to worry about all the little things?!

Most Enjoyable Part of Course Creation

You will never have any problem attracting those who can match your bright shining light with their own.

Sometimes a little structure is a good thing, so although it might not come easily for you, it’s worth remembering to plan out the flow of your course, so that you don’t miss anything out!
Easy-Peasy Lemon Squeezy
If you were stuck in a room with a single shoelace and a stick of gum, you’d have ten ideas for what you could make with them in the first minute! Your ability to think straight, sideways, diagonally and backwards to generate ideas is quite something to behold.

While your teaching will never be boring, it’s worth remembering that consistency is key when it comes to embedding learning. So although it’s tempting to do something different every time, find ways to show that consistency to your learners, so they can get the best of you!
Everyone has that special something that other people can often see in us, but we don’t always see for ourselves. Your secret sauce is your infectious enthusiasm! To you, this is probably just being ‘normal’, but your ability to create a positive spin on just about anything is truly a gift.
