"Decluttering Your Academic Life: Establishing Boundaries and Policies to Help Maintain (or Regain) Your Sanity"
If your attention and focus feel fractured, if your energy is spread across too many projects and people not at the top of your priority list, and if you feel overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time, then you may benefit from establishing some personal and professional policies. Policies are strategically crafted statements that protect your time, energy, and attention, which are your most precious assets as an academic. This Faculty Food for Thought session will teach you strategies to position yourself within strategically-crafted policies that help you declutter your academic life.
