Are you running around crazy trying to get everything done? Feels like you don’t have enough time in the day? We know you have a long list of work you need to do in order to wrap up the school year. BigTeams wants to help you get everything done, but in a calmer matter.
1. Recenter and Refocus
Amidst the chaos, it’s hard to remember to take care of yourself. For example, taking a mental health day. These days can be very rejuvenating, however you use that time just remember that day is for you. It can even be as small as taking a moment to yourself to drink some water and breathe. May is Mental Health Awareness month so don’t forget to let your student-athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, assistants, and everyone else know!
2. Rely on Your Team
You have a team for a reason, they’re there to help you run your athletic department. As a leader, you need to delegate. Sometimes it’s hard to follow through on this, but once you develop this skill, you and your team are unstoppable. Trust is very important and it encourages your coworkers! Rely on your team and in return, you’ll see the benefits.
3. Reflect on Accomplishments
Take a moment to enjoy all you (and your team) have done this past year. When you’re looking, it’s easy to find victories. Maybe it’s in the win/loss column, maybe it’s in the attendance rates of your student-athletes, maybe it’s the program improvements you’ve supervised. In any case, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well down. Now enjoy the last few moments with your seniors and send them off to their next chapter with a smile.
BigTeams understands that the end of the school year is approaching. We hope these little reminders help you and your athletic department get through this last month or so. It can all be a blur but don’t forget, take it one day at a time!
