Sometimes life will be amazing.
You'll be signing up new students, birds will be singing, you will feel fantastic, all of your studio families will love you and have no problems, and everything will be right with the world.
But life doesn't always work that way.
We find ourselves with plans laid out assuming that we will feel amazing and have the time to get everything done.
But sometimes you're busy.
Or just not feeling it.
Or it seems like the ENTIRE world has conspired against you.
So, what do you do then?
List those things down, and when that day comes, you can check them off and leave knowing you accomplished what you needed to.
Anything you accomplish outside of your bare minimum list is bonus.
Treat it that way and DO NOT beat yourself up for having "red" days.
You have to take care of yourself if you want to take care of your students, staff, and teachers.
Give yourself freedom to have "red" days, so you can build up the energy for "green" days.
