What If It Could Be Easier?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • As educators, we’ve committed to work hard. But do we really have to work as hard as we are currently working? In most cases, the answer is no.
  • We often feel uncomfortable with the idea of “easy” because we’ve bought into the belief that the right way is the hard way.
  • When we ask the question, “what if this were easy?” we open ourselves to new possibilities we’d never considered and find ways to be more productive and more satisfied with our work all while making a greater difference in our students’ lives.

As educators, we often think that the "right" way is always the hardest way. It means that we pile on more and more responsibilities making our jobs harder and harder but justifying the extra work because it feels as if we are doing the right thing. But on today's episode, we are going to challenge this belief that the right way has to be the hard way by asking the question, what if it could be easy?

If that makes you uncomfortable, then you'll want to tune in to hear how this question could be a game-changer for you and help you get MORE done without wearing yourself out in the process #LikeABuilder.
