Back to Manage Your Time or Time Will Manage You: Strategies That Work from an Educator Who's Been There
You have a daily to-do list consisting of several dozen items. You're always busy, but you never really feel productive. You know what you need to get done, but you can't figure out where to start. You routinely agree to help others with their tasks but can't make headway with your own work. Sound familiar?
If you’ve ever felt (or been told) that you have a time management problem, award-winning educator PJ Caposey has a revelation to share: you probably don’t. Sure, you may struggle to meet deadlines or stay on top of your myriad responsibilities as an educator, but these aren’t signs that you can’t manage time—they’re symptoms of underlying issues you may never have noticed or thought to address. In Manage Your Time or Time Will Manage You, Caposey identifies eight root causes of “time management difficulties” and provides treatment in the form of advice, support, and coping techniques for teachers and leaders who are
- Work Avoidant
- People Pleasers
- Prisoners of the Moment
- Checklist Dependent
- Technology Avoidant
- Perpetually Imbalanced
Time management is a complex and personal issue best addressed through deep self-reflection or caring and thoughtful coaching. This book offers a blueprint for both. It will help you better understand yourself and the behaviors of those you work with or lead, promoting more productive teaching and leadership—and greater peace of mind.
