Hi my fellow cohorts and professor:
I believe that this week's reading sums up what we can do to work with "our board", our lives. It teaches us that this world is a community, not a race that we had to win. We must deal as "we" and not as "I". I was impressed how Ben storm into Cora's coaching and how sarcastic he was when speaking to her as missing the rehearsal. He forgot Rule No.6 and it cost, not him, but the orchestra the resignation of Cora. After admitting his mistake, he did what he taught to his students. He wrote a letter to Cora, giving himself an A. This humble act of reflection improved and strengthen his relationship with Cora. He lit the spark himself, looked at his board and approach the situation as a "we" instead of "I"...
