School, job, violin practice, friends, homework, sports and family! It’s overwhelming and even for the most organized teen, and not much fun to figure out how to get it all done. This course will introduce you to a bunch of tools that can make it easier. At first we’ll find out what is really important to YOU, and how to cope with the other stuff. We’ll also explore how you can leverage the way you learn to be more effective in time management. Then we get to the nuts and bolts, and talk about calendars. Finally you’ll learn a few ways to not procrastinate. You’ll leave with a draft plan for your next week, using the tools that you found work best for how you think.
