What’s your learning style?

Ok, first of all, an apology. Although I started back on my Sunday blogging routine there was, and I hope you noticed, no waffle last Sunday. This was because I was poorly and couldn’t get out of bed until the late afternoon. I hope you were not too disappointed to tune in and find that there was nothing new. And, while we are on the topic of being disappointed there are going to be some changes with this blog that I feel I need to do in order to continue to make things work. Hope you don’t all get cross with me…

Three gets to success

Well I’m back! After a long summer doing radio shows, streaming gaming and enjoying everything from walks in the sunshine to sitting watching films I am back and entering once more into my blogging habits. It’s been a while since I have actually written/typed/recorded/created a waffle for this site so please be gentle with me and stick with them until I get back into the swing of things. Talking about getting into the swing of things, I thought I would spend this first waffle providing some advice. Don’t worry, it will not be about relationships or dieting. As many of us go back to work, students begin university and trainee teachers head back into classrooms which now can be considered as their own, I thought I would share with you my three ‘gets’ to success.

I’m a nagger! – How I get things done.

Summer holidays are either here or quickly approaching for higher education and although many students are looking forward to sleeping in and chilling, I’m hitting the mammoth marking period of the year when deadlines for SAPs and hand-backs abound. During this time it is important to prioritise and keep tasks and actions clearly defined and assigned to appropriate time slots. But even when we are all away from work, it is also important to maintain a focused approach to things in order to ensure that we reach targets and, using that well rehearsed phrase, ‘get things done!’. I’m a bit of a task manager freak and probably, and I can say this, a workaholic – although the actual definition of that word is probably a whole waffle in itself. I like reaching targets and achieving things and in this week’s waffle, I wanted to share with you some of the tactics or strategies I use to achieve this.
