あらすじ・解説

Like most teachers, you want to use your life to make an impact - not only in the classroom, but in your family, community, and the world.

And yet it feels impossible to have that focus when you’re exhausted and overwhelmed. How can you make a difference when you’re distracted by never-ending paperwork, meetings, errands, and housework? How can you give the best of yourself when you’re bogged down with mundane tasks and unfulfilling obligations?

You’ll never have enough time to do everything. But there is a way to free up time, attention, and energy for the things that really matter: the activities that truly impact student learning; the practices that make you a more effective educator; and the routines that make your home and personal life more fulfilling.

Throughout this book, you’ll learn how to disrupt the status quo by challenging school and cultural norms. You’ll also discover how to create healthy boundaries, overcome feelings of self-doubt, release yourself from perfectionism, and decide what work/life balance looks like for you.

Fewer Things, Better will help you challenge the correlation between hours worked and effectiveness. It’s not about how much you’re working; it’s what you’re focusing on.

As you listen, you’ll gain clarity on what’s most important in every aspect of your life and work so you can allocate time to your biggest priorities. You’ll deepen the courage it takes to live with intentionality, so you can do more of what you love and let go of habits and expectations which aren’t serving you well.

It’s time to release yourself from the feeling of never having done enough.

It’s time to stop giving in to the pressure to be constantly busy.

It’s time to do fewer things, so what remains can be done even better.

BEST Effective, Impactful Teacher Book for All

There is so much great insight in this book that I don't know where to begin. I hope Angela creates a one-a-day inspirational devotions calendar or even a monthly calendar with some of her overflow of top quotes. There is a wealth of information on creating balance/harmony in all areas of our lives that is conducive to us being effective, impactful teachers & humans, period. From student-teachers to seasoned teachers with decades of experience, you will gain an abundance of meaningful assets from Fewer Things, Better. Finished in a day & a half. now about to dive into the compatible workbook.

Life-changing and worth every penny

This will be my third full year of teaching. I am known by almost every coworker I’ve worked with as the overachiever thatputs into much time and energy into my work. I have become so burnt out and frustrated with many of the things that go on in the schools I have worked in. I recently considered changing my profession. Then my coworker told me about this book. I am beyond grateful for her sharing this resource with me. This has restored my spirits and Strank send my will power to try and make a change in my life so that I can enjoy teaching once again as I did when I first started. This is by far the best book I have read in a long time for educators and is worth every penny! I even bought it as a physical book so that I can refer back to and annotate certain key ideas that I want to keep in mind!

Inspirational

Angela has a knack for reminding you being human, setting boundaries, and enjoying this one life are priorities that we need to take seriously before burning out. Well written and relatable. Thank you Angela for sharing your gifts and talents with the world. I’m a better version of myself.
