For School Leaders, Loftier Goals are Easier to Accomplish

We're taught that hard goals are hard and easy goals are easy.

Having worked with 300+ schools, I can tell you that this is not the case in the world of education.

We've observed time and again that school leaders with loftier goals succeed more often than micro-managers.


Paradoxically, loftier goals are often easier to accomplish.
Ambition shifts our perspective.
Ambition transforms our thinking patterns.
Ambition attracts support.
Ambition unlocks energy and produces momentum.
Ambition is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

At Enrollhand, we've learned to end our meetings with this question:
⁉️ "Is this the most ambitious goal you could come up with?"

If you're stuck, shift your thinking up a level; think bigger, not smaller.
Many problems are solvable at a higher level.
