🕰 How long does it take you? (From German Christmas Markets)

One of the things we’ve found with the Advanced course, and with all courses really, is that if you set a timer for an hour, it takes an hour. 

If you don’t set a timer…. well, it could take forever. 🙂 

It’s called Parkinson’s law and it basically says a task fills the time you assign to it.  It’s the reason you get your exam work in the night before or why most people fail when setting resolutions in January. 

It’s also one reason why Genki English is so successful, when you have a set number of lessons to cover the course you get there.  If you don’t,  students can come for years and never learn. 🙂 

So what tasks are you ready to take on now?  And what time limit are you setting yourself?  Play with it,  set some crazy goals and go get some amazing fun results! 🙂

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
