Best-selling author, time management expert, work life balance specialist and professional speaker Susan Sly shares how to help kids stop procrastinating and get more done.

Scottsdale, AZ — December 8, 2016 — Best-selling author, work life balance speaker and expert, and entrepreneur Susan Sly recently published a new article, “4 Ways to Help Kids Stop Procrastinating & Be More Productive.”

Susan begins by asking why kids procrastinate? We must answer that, she contends, before we can help kids stop procrastinating and be more productive.

As she says, “Sometimes we forget kids are really “people” too. Little “people”. Adolescent “people”. Teenage “people”. But definitely ‘people’ – who like me and you – have demands put on them day in and day out. And just as with the deadlines and pressures we deal with, sometimes those demands can feel overwhelming.”

It is that overwhelm, she adds, that causes them to procrastinate since the task they are faced with seems so daunting. Thus, they don’t start their projects in a timely manner and leads to even greater stress.

Since stress is one of the greatest enemies of productivity, this cycle becomes self-perpetuating.

However, Susan states hopefully, all is not lost. There are specific ways we can help kids take control over procrastination. Even better, these strategies are simple and can be implemented quickly.
