We had a kid during one of classes that was difficult to teach. He had so much "noise" going on in his head that he could not focus. Being surrounded by his peers you could see the pressure to perform was weighing on him. I grabbed the 8lb sledge to strike and asked if he was ok. He stared at the anvil and mumbled that he was. I said, "Great! Now lets get to work. Our world only exists right here at this anvil and right now at this moment. There are times when you have to ignore the crowd and do what needs to happen. Do you know what to do?" He smiled and nodded. "Ok then…show me." 🏼 #dirtysmith #thoughtswhileworking
