MAKE TIME FOR FUN
tips for better grades with less stress from The
No photos from Florida last week , I simply couldn't handle photographing the kids in Florida with their winter coats on! Ok, a slight exaggeration, but it was colder than we are used to, so no tans in the Baird household this vacation!
The different weather did make us approach our vacation is a very different way than we have in the past. We have a house near Orlando and we are there often enough that we don't feel under pressure to fill our days with Mickey Mouse. We like to spend time by the pool or at the water parks and that was not really an option (although the hot tub did provide a few hours of fun for the boys). As a result we did a few things we have not done before and were more active.
It led me to consider a few of the lessons we learned that would apply to others about being flexible and adapting to what is going on around you. That is my inspiration for this week's article.
My blog this week also develops the topics of planning, catching up when you are behind and avoiding procrastination - check it out is this rings bells for you.
I hope you enjoy this weeks articles.

Time Management Lessons From A Cold Week In Florida
On vacation in Florida last week we were faced with a cold we had never experience before. As a result our usual vacation routines and activities were up in the air and we had to adapt to what worked in this new climate!
We managed to have a great time but it impacted on both my work and my daughter's schoolwork.
Normally we love to spend time lazing by the pool and that is when I intended to do some work to keep on top of things. My daughter had a ton of work to catch up on and also thought that these down days would be ideal to get her work done.
However, it was not lazing weather and we both had to re plan our approach. Interestingly the same principles applied to us both.
So there you are; a few lessons from our trip. Fortunately you don't have to be in Florida or on vacation to benefit from our experience.
If you are on vacation or heading on Spring break soon then have a wonderful time and come back fighting fit and well rested!
If you or your child are struggling to control your time and get the results you know you are capable of then it is time to take action. The Focused Time Management System TM for Students avoids all the clutter and gives you the most important things to focus on to get you back in control of your time and your life. It's all step by step, not a big mish mash of things. So you do step one of the system, and when you're done with that, you move on to step two, and so on. So easy! All the tips, tools, and worksheets are handed to you on a silver platter. E mail me at Julie@thegradecoach.com to arrange a time to chat over your issues and see if I can help.
