3 How Do We Get Behind?  We procrastinate  We don’t make to-do lists  We don’t prioritize our time  We don’t make time for ourselves Not enough time to do it Falling behind at school and at home Too much to do

4 How Can We Get Ahead?  Realize what causes you to “lose” time  Eliminate daily distractions  Start making to-do lists and check off what you complete  Use a planner or calendar to keep track of tasks and assignments  PRIORITIZE!

5 What is “Lost” Time?  “Lost” time is a term for time passed – or minutes that you could have used to your advantage  What did you do instead? How could you have used those minutes differently?  Are you someone who should schedule almost every minute of the day?

6 What are Some Distractions?  Home: dinner to fix, kids to bathe, homework to do  Work: full-time or part- time, the job still needs to get done  Friends: call when you’re doing homework, say “I never see you anymore!”  What about school???
