Being an administrator often sounds like such a powerful position. To others, it looks like we can make all of the decisions, and we hold all of the cards.
However, there are some changes that we don’t really control at all. We are told that times change, needs change, and priorities change. Therefore, the overall plan must be adjusted. The job of the administrator is to make the new plan work.
Unfortunately, the new plan sometimes results in a change of people or rearrangement of positions. That is what is most difficult. When the mind and the heart conflict, the mind must lead the way, but the heart tearfully follows along.
