Beyond BookSmart: setting priorities

September 6th, 2016

We came across a Priority Matrix Guide developed by Beyond BookSmart recently, and thought it would be so valuable to our students that we asked if we could share a link.  Jackie Stachel’s enthusiastic response included an offer to be a guest blogger, and we’re delighted to feature her in our blog today.

Please note that when you click on the link to the Priority Matrix Guide on Beyond BookSmart’s website, you will be asked for your email address.

For many parents and kids, making the choice to cut certain activities from an overwhelmed student’s schedule can be challenging. It’s likely that you both have strong beliefs about what activities are most important and you simply cannot come to an agreement on priorities. The best way to win that battle is with empirical data, as opposed to opinions. Beyond BookSmart, an Executive Function coaching company, has created a tool to help students evaluate their activities. Their Priority Matrix Guide provides a step-by-step process to help students select meaningful priorities and achieve a better work-life balance.

Please let us know if you find the guide useful!
