Every second....every minute...

We are navigating through the most difficult part of the school year. There are going to be a lot of stressors that try to knock us off our path, many obstacles that we could let get in our way, and demands or parts of the job that seem unfair. But when we commit a focus to giving our very best at every moment, we can smash those things that trouble us, dodge and ignore the obstacles, and make changes or adjustments that can help us do better.


When I struggle with things, I have four words that I repeat to myself over and over again....

Every second...every minute...


You see, I love challenges...life is a challenge...raising kids is a challenge...every day has different challenges....we have professional challenges, family challenges, and personal challenges. Sometimes we are challenged to do better....we are told that what we are doing is not good enough...do we feel sorry for ourselves and sulk or do we focus on the things we can control and accept the challenge to do better.


Every second....every minute...

I choose to win every second of every minute daily. Win the small battles, control what I can, and give my very best in every opportunity that comes my way. When I am told that I can do better...I say thank you for the challenge, and I choose to focus and win...every second of every minute!


I am not content with being part of the good 80%....I want to be part of the top 1%! Where are you?


Stay focused!

Electronic Sign-In - TRYING IT OUT PERIOD EXTENDED

I have decided to continue the "trying it out period" one more week. I want to make sure that computers are on and ready for you when you get here. I will also be adding some directions on what to do if you find the computer is off. Continue to use the computer and the sign-in sheet for now.
