Ep 103: Know Your Why & Remembering Your Magic

As an educator, do you often wonder how to manage your time and energy effectively?

In this insightful conversation, Meg Durham speaks with Dr Bree Hurn, an experienced educator and Director of ‘Know Your Why Learning’. The two discuss how to reconnect with your educational purpose, manage your energy, and avoid burnout.

Bree’s advice is refreshingly simple to action, advocating for self-care and the removal of distractions.

You’ll also learn about the value of professional learning for personal growth and better teaching.

Listen now for practical guidance on managing your time effectively, “slicing away” the things that don’t matter, and reflecting on the magic that makes you an incredible asset to the educational community.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ The importance of connecting with your why.

▫️ How we can better manage our time and energy.

▫️ Why trying to do it all is a recipe for burnout.

▫️ And so much more.

You can quote us on that…

“Doing the work that we love helps other people do the work that they love.”

Dr Bree Hurn

“What could you be a leader in? What could you learn more about? Where could you dive deeper into?”

Dr Bree Hurn

“When something’s really important and you work really hard on it, you can have it.”
