We are one month away from Roadrunner Days. Let that sink in for a moment.
This summer has been a busy one and I hope you have had a little bit of time to rest, reflect and prepare for the upcoming academic year. It is important for us to gain the perspective that comes from distance. This summer, I attended a couple of conferences that allowed me to think about our challenges differently as well as appreciate our many successes. I have also made time to strategize for the upcoming year, take a break with family and play some golf. All of these things prepare us for the challenges ahead and help us make great plans that benefit students.
The ways in which we prefer to rest, recharge and prepare for the year may differ, but I hope you have been able to accomplish this over the summer (or spring depending on the department). I hope you watched a few sunsets, learned something new from a colleague, made a plan for the academic year, spent time with family and friends, or spent time on a hobby. How we take care of ourselves is important.
Let the countdown to Roadrunner Days 2015 begin.
