Don’t always have to be in the same order. What are your 5 major priorities? “As leaders, it’s very easy to put ourselves last.” “Recognize the season that you are in” This will dictate the priority When we don’t know who we are, bad things can happen. “How is this adding or subtracting from the experience you are giving to kids?” – in response to how to respond to teachers taking on everything, saying YES to everything “Your NEXT will always come” WHY this position?
