Jake and Jackie Learn to Manage Their Time, Part 2
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "So, how's the schedule going?" Jackie asked Jake as they walked to school. It was raining, and they each had an umbrella. It was already the beginning of the third week of school. During the first week, Jake and Jackie had developed lists and schedules to help them manage their time better. Neither had said much to the other about how the systems were working.
 
2     "Not too well," Jake said. "I have a good written plan, but when it comes to actually following it, I don't do well."
 
3     "Why do you think that might be?" Jackie asked.
 
4     "I guess I like to do what I feel like doing, not always what the paper says."
 
5     Jackie smiled. "I understand what you mean. Sometimes, I'd rather chat on the phone with Susie or Sonia, but then I look at my schedule and see it is time for homework. I found a way to keep myself motivated, though."
 
6     "What's that?" Jake asked.
 
7     "I pick something I'd like to do or have as a reward, and if I stay on schedule, I reward myself with it."
 
8     "So, you wait to talk on the phone until your homework is done, as a reward?" Jake questioned.
