Simply Beautiful 

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. – Steve Jobs
As leaders, this message is incredibly important two reasons. First of all, it’s important for us in our own thinking. We need to press pause, get our mind right, and work hard to get our thinking clean. For us, that clean thinking is essential in the work we do. Secondly, we strive to lead others. Leadership is about service; it’s about motivating others to reach higher. It is much more effective to communicate the simple; it is easier for other to be motivated by simplicity.
Our work is simple. We want each student in our care to reach his or her highest potential. We want to personalize education – it is about the students in our buildings. Every student matters; every student deserves a personalized learning experience. 
I have your first challenge for the day . . . work hard to make the complex more simple. Today, when you press pause, take a moment as your get your mind right to simplify the problem. It’s hard work, but it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
