√ “One more” is knowing that you have more in you to give to support your purpose.
√ School leaders are wrestling with staff resignations and how to encourage staff to stay.
√ When it comes to purpose, we tend to over-focus on the what and the how and under-focus on why we're doing what we're doing on behalf of those we serve.
√ Don’t look externally for purpose; look internally.
√ To find purpose, “Ask: would I regret not doing “X” or stopping too soon doing what I’m doing?
√ Feeling overwhelmed? Revisit your purpose. Ask yourself why you do what you do, and examine what you like doing.
