Effective Education Leaders are Patient
Smart education leaders know that their journey is often more rewarding than their destination. That’s why they take the time to enjoy life and what they have already achieved because they know nothing can last forever. When you are patient, you will be amazed by how satisfying life can be.
Patience beats impatience every time
Education leaders shouldn’t be in a rush to climb the ladder. Just commit yourself to do outstanding work and serving others, and you will ultimately end up where you want to be. Take time and enjoy your leadership journey, because once it is all over, and when you are somewhere sitting in a rocking chair, you won’t be concerned with accolades, you will be reflecting on the good times that you had with friends family and colleagues. So make time for the things that are truly important in life, and you will see how fulfilling it can be.
And really, what does being impatient ever give us? It gives us a nasty case of anxiety, high blood press, premature aging, and gray hair. What will be, will be and you can’t make things happen any faster than they are supposed to. Those who have tried ended up burned out, with nothing to show for it but poor health. So take it from me and be patient. Your achievements will come in due time and on their own timetable.
Now, being patient doesn’t mean that education leaders lack urgency. They know that some things, such as emergencies, and pressing needs, must be handled immediately. They take care of these items with swiftness and then move on to the next task. Knowing which things require patience and which require urgency is all a part of being a good leader. It may seem hard to figure out the differences between the two, but with time and practice, you will become a pro in no time.
