I try to focus on a balanced life each and every day. If I place all of my time and energy on one thing, I will be at great risk of hurting my identity due to having nothing else in place in order to keep me happy.
Setting a balanced schedule allows me to fit in all of the things that make me happy so that if one thing suddenly fails, I will always have something else in my life to keep me positive.
I also like to take at least an hour a day learning new skill. This is the best way to improve my overall value as an educator.Then, I can share my new knowledge with other eachers as well as my students.
