If you struggle to fit 3 things 'to do' a day into your life; you need to have a serious think about why. It's April already and it's time to hustle! But if you don't, don't despair; you can start from today. If you're feeling overwhelmed by the million things already on your plate, then you should know that there truly is an easy way to deal with it all.
We need to make a major shift in appreciating and focusing on the journey -- helping high school students learn the skills they need -- rather than the destination -- a "good" college. Once they get there, they have to be able to manage their lives, do their own assignments, use a repertoire of effective study strategies, solve problems and, especially, deal with their emotions.
Your goals become a lot less daunting when you focus on the smaller, more accessible steps you need to take to achieve them. Believe me, I feel overwhelmed in the little things I have to do day-to-day. I'm constantly reminding myself to take things just one step at a time. It makes everything manageable.
