In this episode, Charlie Jett focuses on the Critical Skills from the perspective of the STUDENT. Questions addressed include, Why are the skills important? How are the skills learned in high school and college? What is a good way for a student to choose a college to attend? What considerations should be in the student’s mind when taking a new job? Critical skills ARE important for students at an early age – the earlier the focus . . . the BETTER!
The time management skill is simple in concept but it is often a struggle for us all. The skill enables an individual to determine which tasks are most important — to set priorities — and to devote the appropriate amount of time to accomplish these tasks at a high level of quality.
Another way to look at the skill is as Charlie Jett describes: You go to work in the morning and you know you have ten things to do. Four of these are critical . . . but YOU have to determine which four of the ten are in that category. You do your best work on those tasks and, for the others, you do the very best you can do . . . given the time you have left.
