Fewer things better. That’s what I needed.
A number of years ago I went through a period where I was saying ‘yes’ to everything. My schedule was packed. I was on the leadership team at my school. I was President of the parent council at my children’s school. The demands of my young family and a recent medical diagnosis that required around the clock care also impacted life. And it was packed with things that I thought were important. As you can imagine stress was at an all-time high, and time management skills were pretty low. My family were suffering, my work was suffering and I was struggling each day to maintain a real sense of accomplishment.

Fewer Things Better
It was around that time that I came across Angela Watson, an educator and a consultant whose talent lies in providing practical materials to help teachers make the most of their time – and have the right mindset at home and at school. Her course The 40 Hour Workweek help me steady the ship and bring some much-needed direction to my career and life; fewer things better. Some of the books on this list were invaluable in getting back to basics.
So I was excited to receive an email from Angela last week announcing that she’s written a new book Fewer Things, Better: The Courage To Do Focus On What Matters Most and that it will be released on April 10th.
Angela wrote to say that Fewer Things, Better is a book about a teacher’s workload and
Fewer Things Better will help you challenge the correlation between hours worked and effectiveness. It’s not about how much you’re working; it’s what you’re focusing on.
As you read, you’ll gain clarity on what’s most important in every aspect of your life and work so you can allocate time to your biggest priorities. You’ll deepen the courage it takes to live with intentionality, so you can do more of what you love and let go of habits and expectations which aren’t serving you well.
It was these traits and habits that I needed to create change. I’m glad that there is a book that specifically deals with these. Teachers are creatures of habit, and the strength required to change them, even if it means improvement in an area, is often immense.
