"Don't compare yourself to others but rather to who you were yesterday. A solid reflection system keeps you focused on yourself. Focused on iterating yourself to be better each day."
"To become better you have to be honest with who you are now. Knowing your current reality is as important as having a desired state. That only comes with reflection."
The School Year Planning System. We love systems. This is the first system we recommend for any school site or department. Get everyone and everything on the same page with this simple spreadsheet system.
"A goal is an objective. We all write goals. Some goals are forced on us. Goals are necessary. But...What happens next? What happens next is you fail at reaching this goal everyday until one day to you maybe reach that goal and then you just start another. A system on the other hand is a designed set of daily habits, routines, workflows and procedures that you put in place. Having a system creates a chance to win everyday! If you ran the system today, you win!"
"A system gives you something to do everyday. The idea isn't to not have goals, but to have systems that help you achieve those long term goals. A chance to be successful everyday. If I do X Y and Z today then I am successful. A series of short repeatable actions or a system is going to help you actually reach that goal."
