Random homework protocol

This is my patented “Too overwhelmed to start a project or homework” protocol, used a lot last semester.

1. Make patient (usually a classmate) list all needed things to do, task by task. Help/encourage.
2. Make patient prioritize list for that session only. Help/encourage.
3. Make patient assign amount of time needed for each of those tasks. Help/encourage/negotiate/discuss.
4. Set timer for assigned time for first task. Be nearby to encourage. Negotiate time when timer goes off as to whether person can stick with task or not.
5. Rinse and repeat.

It works, I swear 🙂 Ask my happy consumers.
