I admit it, I’m a sucker for a great motivational speech and inspiring quotes – I have some of my faves on the walls of my study and even in my wardrobe! (So I get to see it every morning and night)
But how do you use inspiring stories and people in a more practical way?
What DON’T they tell you in the little snippets of ‘failure to success’ blurb we read?
The CRITICAL step is often missed out of these super-inspiring-summaries.
And it’s this step that will is going to massively help your teen.
I’ve always prided myself on my multi-tasking.
I loved the idea that I was getting more done in less time (who doesn’t want to gain more time, right??!)
Recently I participated in a workshop led by a guy called Alex Mandossian. He’s a productivity coach, among other things (and extremely successful!)
He’s what I learned in that workshop (including a bit of a fun activity for you to try out!) and what it means for your teen
And you! (Don’t we all want to get more done more easily?!)
There has been TONS of research done on this question!
And there is a resounding yes… BUT only for a particular type.
Otherwise, it’s a big, fat NO… (Sorry kids!)
Good news is, hours upon hours of these ‘brain-engaging-chooons’ can be easily found for FREE (watch to the end of this video).
1416 papers later, here is my final round up/summary/review… of the big lessons and key take-aways from 2015 external exam marking.
Enjoy! (And learn!)
I’m going for a good walk (faaaarrrrr too much sitting at a desk in a marking hall), then a good, strong cuppa and a biscuit.
Ok, probably (definitely) more than one biscuit 😉
