Quadrants - Remember this? It has been on my mind since our last Leader in Me last coaching day, and I've wanted to revisit the concept with you a little bit. Most of my day is spent in Quadrant 2. What I am working on is important, but it is not urgent. I could probably do some of it "later", so to be honest... I don't rush or I might hop up to do a "pressing problem".... And then, all of a sudden, my quadrant 2 tasks are slipping into quadrant 1 - and I am not so certain that quadrant 1 is where I make the best decisions. What about you? Just reflect... I want to use my time more effectively so that I can visit your classrooms more often. Once we make it through Halloween, I am going to move forward with my personal goal of 5 A Day. They may or may not be "official", but coming to your classrooms/talking to your kids/seeing your success is my favorite part of the job, and somehow it is not working out lately. I am going to work on this Q2 goal before it becomes a Q1!!
