Rule 711

Dear Interpreting Student:

I expect great things. This will sometimes frustrate you. But, if you ever get so frustrated that you say, “if it’s so easy I’d like to see you do it!” be warned, it won’t help relieve your frustration; my answer will always be “ok.”

Because I can.

That’s why I’m the teacher.

Rule 708

Your brain believes whatever you tell it. When you speak with confidence (especially when you don’t feel it) it will step up.

But! When you mumble or whisper you are telling your brain you don’t know what you are doing and it will act accordingly.

Rule 698

If I ever start to complain about being too busy and having to run from appointment to appointment, I remind myself that the alternative is bored and broke.
