I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for a long time and last week I finally recorded the first episode. The target audience is very specific: assistant principals. They are the forgotten leaders, and I want to help them improve their lives and leadership. The show will be helpful to other school leaders, but it will always be focused on APs. I’ll let you know when the subscription link is available.
Yesterday, for the first time in nine months, I tasted my coffee!
I had COVID back in November and lost all taste and smell. While most of my senses returned in time to taste Christmas morning breakfast (maple twist), coffee has continued to be bland.
Some days it was just like drinking warm water.
Here’s the thing: I never stopped drinking coffee!
I couldn’t taste it, but I kept drinking. Why?
The answer doesn’t really matter. What is important is that we understand why we do things.
Knowing why allows us to be intentional, and that is a key to strategic leadership.
So today, ask yourself why you drink that morning beverage.
And maybe, think about why you do some of the other things you do each day.
