When I'm not preparing speeches for corporate events, I'm a husband and a father. In my involvement with my daughter's school, I recently began working on a project related to language arts for grade school kids — more about that in the future. But in my research I stumbled across this great quote, from author John Warner's blog at Inside Higher Ed: "We don't have low standards, or an achievement problem, or a 'grit' deficiency, but an enthusiasm gap. We have a joy deficit. A curiosity crisis."
It's from this blog post — and it's worth reading the whole thing.
