I’d love to go with the flow, but what time does the flow start?

My husband and I have very different approaches to travel. He prefers an itinerary, preferably on a spreadsheet with as much detail as possible while I tend to have more of a ‘go with the flow’ approach. Did this cause stressors for both of us initially? You bet!

Lisa, it was so interesting to listen to this because I wonder if the same thinking could be applied to the classroom. How might different kids and educators feel and how can we balance both?

I agree, Lisa, and I wonder how others might find some balance (myself included!!), just as you shared in this post.

I am a precrastinator so my default is to like a plan and a spreadsheet sounds amazing. Especially when there are some very predictable hiccups that you know may be coming.

Traveling with friends and family I have managed to find some balance. Often instead of a strict chart we go with a list “we will” things and “it would be fun to“ which may or may not happen. Plus there is almost always a list of options for local spots like restaurants, grocery store, ice cream or coffee to avoid some hangry arguments and make sure that all can enjoy the time and have needs met.

That sounds like a great compromise. I’ve done a similar thing while travelling too. We have an idea of the things we want to do for sure and the things that would be nice if we have time. I like the idea of having an arrangement ahead of time for good and snacks. I need to eat far more often than my husband and get very cranky when I’m hungry!
