Weekly Wellbeing Focus – Targets Getting Things Done / Short Term Targets

Welcome to the Weekly Wellbeing Focus. The focus for this week is Targets Getting Things Done / Short Term Targets.

 

Parent Wellbeing: The Golden Rule, which is, treating other people the way that you like to be treated, really doesn’t show much empathy for their needs and feelings. On the other hand, the Platinum rule, which is, treating other people the way that they like to be treated, requires that you to show empathy to learn this.

While students’ Personal Timetables effectively allocates their time to their subjects and commitments, they also need to learn how they are going to organise that time to complete what they need to do. The willingness to plan and set time targets requires students to possess a growth mindset to overcome these challenges. Once they have set time targets, they then need to use their strengths to achieve them.

There is an effective structure and process to follow this week to enable students to master this more intelligent way to approach what they need to do. The Five E’s of Learning thinking tool on the website is ideal to assist them in this pursuit.

Students need to set time targets for tasks such as:

  • completing unfinished learning.
  • planning and leisure activities with friends and family.
  • practising subject material to reinforce concepts in their minds. (If they can do it at home on their own, then they know it.)
  • connecting with and applying new knowledge learned to new situations.
  • revising what they have learnt to build strong and fast brain pathways
  • reviewing notes from class in a structured manner; time targets are a must here.
  • going off on tangents which interest them and investigating new possibilities to explore and experiment with.
  • reading, researching, evaluating, reflecting, thinking and imagining.
