If we’re honest with ourselves, we’d admit that we want to be great at something that few people find success. While many of us would like to be great at dancing, most of us end up looking like this instead:
Too many times we have people look at us like Hitch looked at his pupil and they say, “Don’t ever do that again!” Of course, Hitch goes on to explain how to dance. His major point is to keep it simple: Go side to side, arms in, elbows tight, and don’t try anything fancy.
This month we’ve been looking at the concept of teaching one point for the most impact. When we try teaching too many things at once to any age group, it simply isn’t effective. We end up looking like we don’t know what we’re talking about and the message doesn’t come across well.
Lesson learned here is this: If you want to dance or teach, keep things focused. Don’t try spin moves or theological gymnastics; because you may just end up looking silly in the end.
