Students landing jet-planes

Luckily most of us don’t have thousands of people’s lives in our hands and millions of dollars worth of travel at stake, but students still have a big job to do.

They have their whole futures as well as their mental health and wellbeing at stake and so getting to grips with stress, overwhelm and efficient, effective study is absolutely crucial.

As we get into the swing of Term 1 that feeling of too many things to do and not enough time to do them may well start creeping up on students soon.

Each task needs to get completed to it’s deadline and to the requirements stated and this week I share a great analogy and explanation of this.

100th video celebrations!… How it happened

This is the 100th blog video I’ve made and posted and emailed out to the world.

That’s 100 tips, tricks, insider secrets shared, advice and sometimes just thoughts and reflections on all things related to getting your teen happy, smart and successful.

It’s a huge accomplishment and certainly gives cause for a mini-celebration

but it hasn’t actually felt like or been a huge great project to be completed.

How we got here has been by ‘baby-steps’ and it’s a great way to tackle many ‘mountains’ that students face.

In fact, it’s not something to put IN place… it’s actually something to STOP doing

(yay – no extras to go on the to-do list!).

Find out what it is aaaaand 2 simple ways to help us to stop falling into this trap!
