"It's not that I don't want to do what I need to do - like my projects for example.
It's just that they take so long to do and I never seem to have the time"
A teenager I am mentoring tells me.
And this is a fact.
Most teenagers have too much to do and too little time.
So what is the solution?
Yes. It sounds like a harsh word but it is necessary if we want more time in the day.
Doing the same thing in the same sequence every day is the only way to
1. Automate some functions of the brain.
2. Speed up things
And ensure that you have more time in the day.
Unfortunately while the parents of teenagers want them to be disciplined - in most cases they haven't ever prioritized discipline in the early years.
The early years are often spent thinking " It is very harsh to discipline children so early in life. They should be free."
Of course they should be free!
That is why they need discipline. Because discipline sets you free.
Show your child how they can set themselves free through discipline as early as possible.
Do this by being disciplined YOURSELF.
That is the only way to ensure that your teenager gets their work done on time in high school.
