It doesn't work...yet. 
I'm not ready...yet.
I can't say YES...yet.
I can't say NO...yet.
I don't know how...yet.

I think this word epitomizes a beautiful mindset. It is loaded with possibility. As I've been reading through our conversations in the Forward Team Classroom, about saying YES and NO, a lot of you talked about just saying, "not yet," instead. This simple response speaks to me. 

For a student, "It Doesn't Work Yet" vs. "It's a Failure" represents the same moment in time, yet it is a crucial point. One in which the future pivots. 


Do we give our students space to say "yet," and be proud of it?
Do we allow ourselves?

Yet. Pivot.
