The nature of the work that we do means that in many cases there are no clear cut solutions and certainly no easy fixes. We are a small team with big ideas but careful planning is required so that we can focus on priorities and establish where, with our limited resources, we can help influence change and maximise opportunities for children to achieve their personal best.
It is challenging and many times it will involve going back to the drawing board, analysing what has or has not worked, and perhaps changing direction. But is it worth it? Absolutely! I still find it refreshing to work in an environment where failure is not a bad thing and struggle can be seen as positive.
Now, if I can just apply that thinking to stop me raiding the biscuit tin or my kids’ selection boxes I will be pretty happy!
Good luck with your resolutions and all the best for the year ahead.
