Without personal care, a school leader risks failing themselves, their family and their school. One of the greatest risks is that of work consuming life. Being a school leader is a job, not a life. Preserving physical, mental, social and spiritual fitness is essential to best performance.
Good leaders work at fitness and dedicate time to develop and maintain it. For example, 4.00 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays for physical fitness, Saturday evenings for social occasions, and set times for family.
