January 2019 - New year New “NO”

As educators, we are predisposed to be of help, to freely offer our time, and to give our energy in the name of supporting others. 

It is SO difficult to say no to these requests.

The problem is that the requests are potentially damaging if we don't set healthy boundaries.  This year, I invite you to be very selective about what you say yes to.  When you say no to requests that don't "fill your bucket," you're saying yes to being more effective, more resilient, and ultimately more helpful.
