Another opening conversation designed to get at the relationship between organization — how do I keep track of my work — and ownership — how do projects become mine?
I did a paper folded in three: left side where students wrote bullet points for what it means to be organized and right side where students wrote bullet points for what it means to own a project.
We used the middle space to discuss the overlap between the two.
Some key insights:
time management is much easier when it’s your time, your choice, from your decisions…
pride helps make you organized.

“When you’re organized you’re taking ownership over your projects because you’re focused on getting your work done.” — JC
