Finding a Way

“Determine the thing that can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.” – Abraham Lincoln
As educational leaders we often find ourselves seeking balance. We have innumerable wants and needs, but limited resources and time.
We’d like to reduce class sizes, we’d like to provide more intervention support, and we’d like to have more resources available for struggling students. Our want lists seem to be unending, but the budget is a constant constraint. We want to do more, but time is a limited resource. We must constantly prioritize important opportunities knowing something isn’t going to get done.
We must be purposeful in our thinking. We must continue to push what we can and shall do. We can’t take no as the answer. Finding a way will often mean doing things differently – being innovative and creative. We must model resilience, grit, and determination.  
If you are passionate, if you are purpose driven, if you are disciplined you will find a way to get done what needs to be done. You will find a way to make what matter most, matter the most.
