April 11

This project appealed to me.  I could move ahead in school, at my own pace, instead of relearning subjects over and over again.  I believe that I could be years ahead in my studies if I was in this system.  My education is an event that could have had a much better outcome in a shorter time, and I want to make sure that others like me can look back at their time in school, and think “I didn’t waste a second of my life there.”

  1. Well said and worth thinking about, for sure.

  2. Well, I figure once we know these things, it’s up to us to put them into action. A lot of people educated by our public schools feel like they’re overbooked in terms of the attendance time commitment required at school, but undertaught in terms of the amount of time spent versus actual learning accomplished. You express this so well.

    As you may be juggling projects and commitments which increase in number and complexity –in addition to other family, life, and school activities –, I often recommend Getting Things Done as a great way to accomplish goals and set them. It streamlines the work flow process, a skill which will assist you for the rest of your life.

    Feel free to pass this GTD tip along to your fellow students, and I bet that if you learned it well enouogh to implement it in your own life and teach it to others, you could even teach it to your teacher and to your parents.

    I am finding it to be a tremendous relief to an overburdened mind!
