Here’s an exercise/challenge I shared with a leadership team last week. I think it’s one of the most important things you can do at the start of a new school year.
Perform a time analysis of your schedule last year. What does your actual schedule say about your priorities (as a leader, as a human being, etc.)? Are you happy with what your choices say about you? If so, keep things as they are. If not, set up some sacred, repeating, weekly or monthly events to help you do more work that you consider meaningful, healthy, and/or deep. (Invitation: Use my contact form to send me a list of these new commitments, and I’ll ask you about them in a few weeks.)
