I teach a class to coaching clients a few times every quarter, and it always drives me crazy when I hear students tell others they are “taking a class.”

Why? It’s a negative way to describe an approach or action.

We take the medicine our doctors prescribe. We take the punishment for a poor decision or action. We don’t look forward to “taking” those things. 


When we are pursuing an education or seeking deeper knowledge, we get to do that. We get to learn a new dance with our partner, we get to go to work each day, and we get to serve the wellbeing of our community.

The intent behind the action matters.

You don’t “take” a class. You get to be in a class – it’s an opportunity to learn and grow and help those around you. 

Change the way you think about opportunities and actions. You’ll love the results.
