Do you ever feel like you’re working on a million tasks at once, but not making progress on any of them? As an academic, it’s likely that you are juggling multiple commitments and projects. Even the most determined of us can find ourselves overwhelmed at the scope of our responsibilities. If you find yourself struggling to keep track of your writing amidst all your other professional obligations, then this webinar is for you. Jane will share tips for making (and sticking to) a writing schedule, working regularly (instead of binge writing) so your projects stay fresh in your mind, and managing multiple deadlines. You will learn strategies you can employ immediately to make sure that your projects stay on the front burner no matter how busy you are. We’ll also discuss how to combat procrastination, feeling overwhelmed, and distraction. You’ll leave the webinar with a plan for maintaining steady progress on your work.
