I often equate the school year to running a marathon….I’ve never run a marathon, but if I did I think it would feel like a whole school year! We’ve reached the part of the year when the finish line is in sight and, we’re sprinting….FAST!
We’ve got a lot to do and it feels like there just isn’t enough time to get it all done. But, here is the thing about going FAST-we stop paying attention the little things, to the fine details and we get sloppy. I know that when I try to do too much too fast, I mess up, I slide into autopilot which means that my actions are below the line. I end up lacking PATIENCE, PRECISION and PERSPECTIVE for the events I encounter.
Take two minutes to watch this message from Tim Kight about disruptive emotion, which can happen easily this time of year. It is up to us to recognize our actions and respond to events skillfully and intentionally with PATIENCE, PRECISION and PERSPECTIVE. And remember, we don't control our outcomes we earn them.
