A Five Step Plan

I remember when the USSR used to announce 5 year plans.  Seth Godin has a simple five step plan for just about everyone and everything.

The number of people you need to ask for permission keeps going down:
1. Go, make something happen.
2. Do work you're proud of.
3. Treat people with respect.
4. Make big promises and keep them.
5. Ship it out the door.
When in doubt, see #1. 
I think Seth is right, but I don't think he's ever taught in a public school.  Steps one and four get teachers in trouble,  It's tough to do number two if the boss cares only about teaching to a test.
