Message from the Q:

I just finished reading a textbook for grad school on teaching math to elementary students… What’s Math Got to do With It by Jo Bolars.

Anywho.

The textbook focuses on “the communicative approach” to math instruction and math learning. The communicative approach is when students are working and learning in a collaborative and engaging environment versus the traditional approach of the singular learner who memorizes math concepts. The communicative approach promotes a positive classroom culture which boosts positive thinking which then leads to a positive learning outcome and success!

Positivity is a vital word to have in one’s vernacular.  And it’s a word we should all practice and make a priority in life. Yes, we will all experience hardships in everyday challenges of life, but we should practice what we call in the theatre world, 

“YES, And…”

This means, “YES” you accept whatever is given to you, rather it’s good or bad. Once you accept it, you then could contribute with an AND and add value! 

This is a skill we teach in basic improv… for example:

Partner A – Hey man, the sky is falling!

Partner B – Yes, AND… we better kiss our butts goodbye because, oh my, this is not going to go well!

See? Partner B added to the scene by accepting what Partner A said AND contributed to the scene so the scene could continue and add on.

However, if the scene went like this:

Partner A – Hey man, the sky is falling!

Partner B – No it isn’t.

.

.

.

Partner A – ………  

***inner monologue of Partner A: Come on, bro, help me out here, you can’t say NO in improv… where is the scene supposed to go now? you are the worst scene partner… ever.***

When you “YES, AND…” in life, you have the opportunity to ADD A POSITIVE VALUE to the situation. Let it be a positive thought/feeling so you could have a positive and fulfilling outcome. 

This is Futurama’s second anniversary, this site was established on Thursday, March 14th, 2019 (so 3 days shy) with No-Doze being the first site Q. When I reached out to No-Doze about wanting and learning the responsibilities of being a Site Q he “YES, AND” me…

He said, “YES, you would be a solid SIte Q… AND you will be able to contribute your experience and personality to these guys.” 

And boy did that inspire me… I mean, he’s Nick Rudman, a Redwood, a professional who knows his trade, a HIM who crushes all of his workouts, has a loving family, and we’re having a positive experience, getting to know each other, understanding our perspectives, and our approach/style to leadership… while having a drink at Casual Pint on a beautiful day… Yes! That’s Futurama… all positive vibes!  

I’m a huge advocate of a “positive mindset” and I felt Futurama is the perfect AO site to enrich itself with positivity because you all make it fun! 

You all add your personality, your experiences, and your own unique style to this AO Site: Go sledding with Two-Step/Mufasa, visiting St. Margaret Mary with E-85/Pony Express, visit Middle Earth with Stick-Bandit’s Lord of the Rings themed beatdown, or discover the dreadful new feature of this site… The Chicago St. Hill, thanks Mac N Cheese…

Futurama is one of five AO sites to operate on Thursday mornings. Futurama is the second oldest AO site on Thursdays and serves as a boot camp-style workout for men of F3 Omaha. Futurama is a versatile AO site due to its expansive environment, geographic location, and accessibility for men with different fitness experiences. As a versatile site, Q’s of Futurama are encouraged to design workouts based on their fitness level and to embrace the opportunity to be themselves as leaders. Futurama imbues positivity to all the HIM who posts there and that is part of its charm… The site where positivity and opportunity present themselves, you just have to embrace it… Look to the Future.  

Yall, I encourage you all to lean into your positive mindset. By doing this, you will create a positive environment for you and your loved ones, which will aid your growth and success as an individual. Accept whatever life brings you “YES” and then “AND” to add a positive value. 

YES, AND… Always Look to the Future!

Aye!
