Schools Of Excellence Podcast

Jul 13, 2021

Summer is such an exciting time! It is a season filled with so many great ideas which if not well thought out, will never get to see the light of day. Tune in to today's episode to learn how the IRER method has been a game-changer for me and my family.


Planning for summer using the IRER method has 4 parts to it. Intention, Reflection, Experience, and Rhythms. Why intention? Because there is a very big difference between creating an intentional plan and playing it cool. Reflecting on your wins reminds you how far you have come, and how much more you are capable of achieving. While experiences allow you to schedule your life, rhythms help you stick to the schedule!


Some of the episode highlights include:


  • What it means to start with intention and what is in it for you.
  • Building the confidence and a mindset to stop falling apart when chaos happens.
  • Reflective questions to ask yourself as you plan out your summer.
  • Some of the rhythms that my family and I are bringing back this summer.

... and so much more!


Remember, rhythms create a culture and become part of who you are as a family.
