One of the biggest challenges that kids face when they move from traditional schooling to the more open environment of the Pilot is in the area of Time Management. You’re becoming empowered learners. In a lot of ways this will feel like you’re becoming your own teacher. Plan how you will use your time. Your schedule must be recorded and updated regularly.
Some suggestions here: • Block out the time you have in which to work using a Google Calendar • Start with what you want to accomplish as the end of each semester • Make big goals, make a weekly plan showing how you will get there • If you feel off track, consult your advisor and ask for help
Don’t forget the importance of sleep, exercise, eating well, friends and family. Also, what classes do you have? So now you see where your time is. What will you do with it, your one wild and precious life?
