How I Handled College and Family
There are more nontraditional students than ever before who are desperately trying to balance family, college, and... many times… work, as well.
I'd like to share with you what I learned about home time management and how I handled college and family. And what I'm about to share enabled me to not only succeed at college, but to excel.
I Learned to Prioritize
Prioritizing is what will ensure your success in college. Sometimes what we think is important really isn't.
Kids Didn't Always Have Top Priority
Kids are in adult-training and, as such, should never feel like they are #1. I know, some people are just bristling but I want you to really think about it... if you always put them in the top dawg spot they are being set up for a lifetime of disappointment because no one else is ever going to put them first.
If I Couldn't Study at Home I Went Where I Could
I had several places I studied at over the years including:
*All night waffle joints
*Parking lots (be judicious about this... I went to a very safe part of town)
*My screened-in porch
*My room with the door shut
I Planned Everything Well in Advance
Everything... and I do mean everything... was planned well in advance. On the weekend I would look ahead into the week to see what everyone had going on and plan around it.
