One Secret that Great Leaders Know About Summer
School folks love this time of year. It's the proverbial "best part of being a teacher", i.e. July and August. That's partly true and I often wonder how people with "regular jobs" manage to get through the year without a breather in the summer.
Here's the thing- the best school people I know learned long ago that summer goes best when you keep to a schedule. For me, this means going to bed at the same time as during the school year and getting up at the same time. I know- b-o-r-i-n-g! But guess what? It works and works really well for me. The only tweak I practice is to leave at 3 or 4 in the afternoons. That's it.
Keep a schedule to get the maximum productivity of summer and still enjoy the benefits of a few months with fewer interruptions. After all, it's summer.
