It was entertaining, to say the least.
One character, Loki (the god of mischief and a general kinda weasel of a guy but who’s good deep down inside), manages to mess with stuff pretty well.
But the interesting thing is that it seems almost like things happen by accident for him.
Without spoiling, at one point he is presented the option of whether he wants to get on a spaceship with some folks. Next thing you know, he’s the leader.
Or he’s captured by some guy and then next thing you know he’s a trusted advisor.
I’ll give the guy some credit – he is a smooth talker.
But even more than that?
He’s good at seizing opportunities.
I dare you: go watch any Marvel movie with Loki in it and watch an opportunity pass him by.
The best students are like Loki but with their time.
You have tons of time-bits throughout the day that most likely pass you by. I see it all the time with my own students: maybe three minutes before the bell they’re packing stuff up and starting to hang out.
Three minutes a day times five days a week … that’s 15 minutes a week.
15 minutes a week is nine full hours over the course of the school year.
Nine hours wasted.
Do you let time (and opportunities) pass you by?
Or do you seize them like Loki?
