A Learner's Mantra

Mantras, in the traditional sense, are sacred words or phrases designed to help focus one on a spiritual transformation. Recently, mantras have found their way into the business world with the creation of business mantras - short memorable phrases that, unlike mottoes or catch phrases, speak to the businesses culture and core purpose (for a few good examples see this Fast Company article).

I have often suggested that students view their role as producers of an educated body of work and as the CEO of their own personal student brand. As such, establishing a learner's mantra may be both fun and useful.

The same exercise may work as well with teachers - to develop their educator's mantra.
