MVP: Put people before purpose
What I am anticipating most about our Pennine Way hike is the views. There are some amazing vistas.
That said, I think the most rewarding part of the hike will be the people we meet along the way.
I have wanted to do this hike for 35 years (!) but in the end, it is the people that will make this hike special and memorable, not the views.
Maybe in a way, our Grand Adventure is just an excuse for meeting a bunch of people who are very different (maybe) from us.
One of the biggest surprises of my podcasting journey has been just this. I have met such incredible people who care so deeply about others. One of those people is Will Parker, the host of the Principal Matters podcast, which might be the top principal podcast in the world.
I was privileged to talk with Will a few weeks ago and you can also enjoy his company by listening to yesterday’s episode of The Assistant Principal Podcast.
Today’s intention: As you go about your day, be mindful of how connected you are with the people around you. Pay special attention and think about who you would like to know better.
