  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...

Students are over-studying in subjects they are good at.  The aim is to increase your ranking in a subject within your school. You want to be as close to the top of the class as you are able.  If you are already in the top 5 or 10 students for that subject, you can then be strategic about how you allocate your time. If you have a lower ranking in a particular subject. this is where you should focus your effort.  For example, if you are getting 92%, it will take a lot of effort to get to 95%.  You would be better to take another subject where you are getting 70% and put in the effort to get over...

As our teens head back to school, it is important for them to click back in.  Some teens are able to click in during the first week, and they find the transition back to school easier than those that take more time to settle into the school year. Part of the issue is the change of routine, so the faster you establish the school routine, the easier and faster it is for the teens to settle. What is their emotional state? Are they excited or anxious? Both of these emotions actually provide similar physical responses in the human body, it is just our attitudes and perspectives that determine how we frame the emotion.     If they are anxious listen to find out what is causing the anxiety and try to unpack the underlying issues so that you can bring them to the surface and deal with them, one by one.       If they are excited, it is easier to deal with. It would be great if you could focus this positive energy into some goal setting for the year.  What do they want to achieve this year? Write it down and review it each term, or more often if possible.       Finally, on a more practical level, make sure everything is ready for the new school year: uniforms, school bags, stationery supplies, and that all the filing and archiving is done, both for physical files and for their online...
