A Better Man

ImageThis is the start of a new day. The start of a new week. The start of a new season. Beginning today, I’m committing to you to be a better man. 

For the past week or more, I’ve been trying to create some new habits in my life. After much trial and error it was becoming obvious that I had to readjust my schedule in order to make things fit. This is a screen shot of my phone after an hour long workout this morning.

If you’re like me, you already work long hours and have plenty of family activities to fill up your schedule. Things like exercise and blog writing became non-existant for me. I told myself I’d do it in the evenings, but the urgent seemed to always take place of the important. They just got shoved to the back burner. 

So now I’m taking care of these things early in the morning. So early that I know others won’t be up. In the future, I hope to write about my new morning ritual. But until then, Here’s my promise to you. 

I promise to be more disciplined…To work hard on leading myself so that I can effectively lead my family and my school… To be a part of the online conversation and give back to the readers, educators, parents, and students that I so dearly love.  

Keep me committed. Feel free to call me out and ask me how I’m doing. Heck, maybe you’ll even consider joining me in my journey at being a better man.

  1. Well, I can’t be a better man because I am a woman. I can tell you, it is much easier to rise early when the sun comes up earlier. This summer has been a new beginning for me in getting up early once again. I hope you will succeed. I really do.
