  It is that time again.  After a summer of socialising, gaming and sleeping it is time to click back in for the new year of study.  Here are 5 strategies to share with your young people to increase focus for the new year: Set individual goals for desired achievements. Review the last year and determine what worked, what needs improving and set achievable goals for the results desired. Goals are good but action is better. Plan how you are going to achieve your goals.  Be realistic and honest with yourself.  When are you going to work and when are no not working.  Write it in a weekly planner and stick to it.  Plan work time and down time and share it with others. Clear the attitudes that are not working for you. Clear the clutter.  Clear your desk and bag to make the new year easy. Clear the thoughts that are not working for you.  Decide what you want and go for it. Have your support team in place. Who is there to help when you need it?  Get to know your new teachers and find all the support that is available at your place of study and at home.  Remember, elite athletes are surrounded by a supportive team and you need to do the same if you want to achieve great results. Balance your life. You do not need to work long hours to achieve great results but when you are working work with focus and intent.  You need to balance your study time, down time, interest and sports and of course time with family and friends. Make sure there is some time to just relax and have a life. Workshops are scheduled for young people who need help getting organised.  Go to www.transformetry.com for more...

Before the year starts and throughout the first term, it’s is good to consider where your Teen’s head is at. What is their attitude towards the new school year? Are they excited or distressed about school? If they are excited that is easy to deal with, you can join in with their excitement. If they are distressed you might want to sit and talk about what is causing their distress and see if there is anything you can do to support them. Are they confident or anxious about the upcoming year? If they are anxious you can calm them and provide encouragement and perspective about your expectations and clarify their expectations. Are they focused or unfocused? Focus is great but what are they focused on? It could just be the social side of school which is a great and important factor but so is the academic side. Many teens are very focused on what is happening outside of school, whether it be friends, sport, shopping or gaming. This is natural but as they get further into first term they need to regain some balance between what is important inside and outside of school. If they are not focused on the academic side of their studies it is often that they lack relevance of why that is important. Talk to them about how better results provide better opportunities. Not every child can come first in their class, all we hope is that they do the best to their...
