MVP: There is not enough time to do everything.
Several years ago, I asked an elementary principal how many hours she worked each week. Having asked this same question of many principals, I was expecting an answer of somewhere around 60 hours/wk.
Her answer was 40-45.
I was astounded and asked, “How do you get everything done?”
To which she responded, “I can’t get everything done, but what doesn’t get done will be waiting for me tomorrow.”
This led me to the first epiphany: there is not enough time!
No matter how long or hard we work, there will never be enough time. It is the nature of leadership in the 21stcentury.
Today’s intention: When was the last time you finished a day with nothing left to do? What is the closest you have come in the past two months?
