I’m supposed to be back in solid work mode now. No fun presentations or travels, just getting down to the nitty gritty and actually producing new materials. And it is flippin’ hard work! Having a load of problems to sort out doesn’t help. Actual teaching or meeting people is really easy, and easy to be genki at, but sitting day in day out trying to get genkiness down on paper, on manuscript, or into a computer takes a lot of effort. All the inspiration bits are done, it’s just the slog to make them reality. Sometimes I think I must be mad doing this, the nice emails I keep getting keep me going, but if there’s ever been a test of genkiness so far, it’s now! But I got a nice quote today “Some people dream of success … while others wake up and work hard at it.” Gambarimasyou as we say in Japan!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
