“Whatever your doing, your trajectory has to be toward happiness. There’s just no point otherwise.”
Late last year I started running again. I needed to find balance. Perspective.
Work can become all consuming if you let it. You need to find a balance between interests outside of work, spending time with those who mean the most to you and scheduling plenty of down time. Once you get to that place, you rediscover why you do what you do.
The ability to have a positive influence on the development of young people is a privilege. This privilege requires that we have balance. Balance enables the fire to keep burning brightly.
We owe that not only to ourselves but also our students.
