    Do you struggle to find time for what matters to you? Maybe you want to write more, or balance your work and home life. The purpose of this hour of time is to give you tools and strategies to begin finding the time to do things that you value. Practicing well-tested methods used by some of the most productive people in history, you can enhance how you prioritize commitments and interruptions. For example, finding helpful collaborators may help you find time. We’ll look at the big picture of your pie and how to slice it into its most productive pieces.

    At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
    • Evaluate what they spend their time doing
    • Prioritize their activities using the Eisenhower matrix
    • Identify where collaboration and delegation would help
    • Determine ways to protect time

    Have you ever paused while drafting a scholarly paper because you’re uncertain of the most inclusive, contemporary terminology to employ for a participant’s, individual’s, or group’s identity? When publishing, being conscious of the weight and power these terms hold is crucial, but staying up to date can be difficult as language is constantly evolving. In this workshop, we will discuss current industry standards and directions for terms involving race, gender, disability, and other identities. You will also learn how to navigate journal expectations, particularly when they might contradict current social norms or personal preferences.
