Never Teaching the Same Course Twice

We are creators. We need not do the same wrote stuff over and over. We can create what we want instead of staying in a rut.
In my ten years on the faculty at Stanford, I was blessed never to teach the same course twice. I moved from field to field and changed every course I taught, every time. I remember the nights when I was still working when the dawn came. I remember the adrenaline pumping when I stood to face students with material as new to me as it was to them. I know that I got help from the Holy Ghost. If that help came to me there, it will surely come in greater power here. So, while I appreciate the challenge the faculty and staff face in this university, I await the future with happy anticipation.  (“Raise the Bar". Elder Henry B. Eyring. BYU-I Devotional.
