“It’s a marathon, not a sprint.” But what happens when you end up sprinting through a marathon? With students, educators, and families about to close out on this inherently unsustainable race, some may say, “See! Nothing is impossible!” But we must be vigilant in not making permanent the intense stress and pressure that comes from trying to make impossibly challenging decisions with impossibly restrictive time constraints. Instead, consider these three tips that have guided me through these challenging times:
1) Just because you can, doesn’t mean that you should.
2) Mistakes are not the end of the world. Mistakes can be magic.
3) Doing Right > Being Right (doing things the right way is almost always more important than having the “right” answer).
And now, it’s time to breathe!
