Sometimes we all have too much pressure! I have learned there are ways to help me cope with that pressure! Every morning at my school we have a short morning meeting, and several days were devoted to time management and handling too much pressure. Using Angela Maiers’s habitude list as our guide, we found that perseverance is the key component to time management. On some nights I find I have too much homework along with my swimming practice and guitar lessons. I have to make tough choices, and I have learned it is better not to just rush through my homework if time has me crunched to get everything done. We read Peter Reynolds’ book, So Few of Me, and I loved watching the young boy, Leo, make so many lists he felt he needed to multiply himself to get it all done. Leo decided he needs to do less so he could do his best. This little book spoke volumes to me. Just talking in our meetings about how to manage time has helped me learn to make better choices with my life’s daily problems.
