Subject: Spinning too many plates as a school owner?
Hello… Duane here!
When I was young I remember my parents taking me to the circus one year.
My family and I piled into our little Toyota Tercel you see… With my 6’ 3” tall dad, knees almost press to his chest driving…
My 5’ 3” tall mom in the passenger seat and me and my two younger brothers in the backseat…
By the way, I always tried to get the seat behind my dad so that if I made a “smart” comment that it would be harder for him to reach back to smack my mouth.
But I digress… Back to my original point about the spinning plates.
There I was with cotton candy in one hand and popcorn and the other watching this goofy white faced, red-nosed, happy smiling clown spinning a few plates on what looked like doll rods…
As I remember that experience those many years ago I can recall not being so impressed with 3, 4, 5… 10, 11, 12… 15 or so plates being spun and balanced all at one time as I was watching the trapeze act.
Fast forward 25 or so years and come to find out that as a business owner, like you, I was spinning at first 3, 4, 5… plates.
And later 10, 11, 12,… 15 and more plates. This time I was not a spectator but was an active participant in spinning the plates…
Can you relate?
The other thing I noticed was everyone around me was amazed at all the plates I was spinning.
All except for me of course. In fact, I was getting more and more frustrated and resentful… Have you been there?
Things took a big change for the better when I understood and adopted the concept of being a strategic school owner.
Listen, if you have been spinning plates like me or you still are…
