When I was working, people that were retired always said “I am so busy, I don’t know how I ever worked”. I would smile and laugh with them, but I am not sure I ever really understood what they meant. Well, now I am retired and I completely understand. I don’t have a lot of free time and unless I manage the time I have I won’t get anything done. You know the saying “If you don’t manage your time, it will manage you”.
This concept is important for all ages, not just retired people. Our students have lots of things that demand their time and attention. And as they get older and go in the upper grades, they will get jobs but still have to make good grades to achieve their goals.
I have discussed finances, attitude, affirmations and many other concepts with my students as I am sure other coaches are doing the same. When school starts again, 3 of my 4 students will be seniors and their learning how to manage their time will be critical. I will talk about lists, prioritizing, limiting their phone and video game use and such. The big concept I want them to understand is that there are only 24 hours in a day and once that time is gone there is no way to get it back. We all need to realize that. If any of you out there have any other ways or techniques to manage time, please let me know. I would love to know your ideas and be able to share them with my students.
