Summer Rewind: TOLO?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:

  • If we really saw our work through the lens of TOLO, there’s a lot of things we’re putting off right now, that we would immediately start doing -- and there’s even more that we would STOP doing.
  • Instead of TOLO, many of us are living that TANY life, and it’s why we’re so frustrated and overwhelmed.
  • When you focus on TOLO, you reignite your passion for the work and as a result, actually get more done.
  • Our students will only have one chance to have a 3rd grade experience, or a 6th grade experience, or a 10th grade experience (we hope!). What are we doing this summer to ensure that they have a successful and meaningful school year given that they will only have that experience once? 

We're all familiar with the term YOLO (You only live once). It's often used as an excuse to indulge ourselves in something decadent because after all, we only have one life, we might as well make the best of it.

But what happens when you shift the term from YOLO to TOLO - They only live once?

On today's episode, we're going to explore how having a TOLO perspective can help you make a real difference in the lives of your students (even in the messiest of circumstances) #LikeABuilder.
