Going Round in Circles

Watching this robotic arm and train is both mesmerising and amusing. You can even watch the 5 minute version of the video  which will drive you even crazier! 

The video seems to sum up my working life at the moment as with big changes in the curriculum at GCSE and A level I feel like I’m on an endless loop just like this train. 

Watching the video made me ask myself:

  • What can I do to slow things down?
  • What can I do to break the cycle?
  • What am I gaining from staying in the loop?


What do you think of when you watch the train?


This month's free photo download to prompt reflection:

How can the image be used as a metaphor for something that is happening in your life (good or bad)? What does it spark inside you in terms of seeing a new way forward you had not previously considered? 

Save the image to your downloads folder.
