This week, we look at Asset number 32, Planning and Decision Making. According to the Search-Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they know how to plan ahead and make choices.”
For those of you who know me well, I’ll take a short pause to allow time for you to guffaw. I do get an awful lot done, but I’ll tell you, that it is by the grace of God that things get accomplished and it has very little to do with me.
I’m one of those people who seems to get it all done, but that may depend on if it is due by the end of the work day or by 11:59 p.m. on that day. I kid you not but I have written a grant due by 11:59 p.m. on a certain day. The fact was at the time I had a dial up connection or slow speed, so whether it was received on time could have been iffy. Even as an adult, I’m still working on this part of Asset 32.
You don’t have to have an asset to try and instill it in youth, but it sure helps. One way to help the young people in your life is by helping them lay out a plan. If a large assignment is due several weeks away, sit down with the student and help them see how it can be accomplished in smaller steps.
