Scheduling Smarts: How to Get Organized, Prioritize, Manage Your Time, and More
by Sandy Donovan (Author)
64 pages

Booktalk: Time management. It’s a challenge for everyone. Between homework, family life, friendships, and after-school activities, most teens feel overscheduled and stressed out. But did you know you can create a ‘time budget’ to help you manage your list of to-dos? Or that identifying your priorities is a great first step toward getting your crazy schedule under control?

Snippet: Ever heard the expression, “Time is money?” People use this phrase to describe how valuable time is. What they’re really saying is, “Treat your time like money, because you’ll never feel as if you have enough of it.” In fact, this saying is true in more ways than one. Time is valuable, and you do need to budget it just like you budget money.

pruning the roses
I cut the old canes
away, and new ones grew back
fuller and stronger.
