65. The Leverage Point For Change
Right now you are back full swing into the new school year and whether you are teaching, coaching, working as an administrator, or an aide, you all have had to come up with so many ideas for change in the past six months!
This is very much the equivalent of pounding that square peg into the round hole and trying to make the best of a tough circumstance.
This has also been the most fertile ground for change we have seen in education in a long time.
We all seem to have a million ideas for how our lives could be so much better.
Whether we are striving to change our personal lives, our families, or our schools we must remember that the leverage point for change is always in the future!
We cannot gain the leverage we need looking backwards.
Learn from the past but always be looking forward if you are looking to change!
So stop right now and see where your focus is.
If you desire for things to be better than they have been previously then you must be looking for a point in the future to springboard off of.
Goals do a great job at helping us map out this future focus.
Vision does an amazing job at pulling us towards that brighter future.
Mission is who we are and what we are striving to be, in the future.
So what does your future hold?
Where are you looking to jump from?
Do you have this articulated out?
If you need help figuring out the path to walk I can help you!
You are going to have to walk the path but I can help you gain the leverage you need to get where you want to go.
