"Every yes is a no to something else" 


Angela Watson
Founder, 40 Hour Teacher Work Week

Are you sure that working longer hours means being more effective? That's a trap! Oftentimes we try to do as much as we can until we hit a point of exhaustion, which doesn't mean we're being productive. In this episode, Angela Watson and I talk about how to minimize the amount of time spent working in order to focus on goals and be effective. She also discloses why innovation and creativity are necessary to achieve success in the classroom. Angela thinks that teachers should work a maximum of 40 hours a week and take care of their own health and wellbeing. Listen carefully to her advice on how to create work balance and take control of your time.
