If your household's having trouble meeting deadlines -- whether for school or work projects -- then you might have some serious disorganization on your hands. It's important to meet official commitments, and if that isn't happening, it's either time to scale back or address how you're handling your school or workload.
That can mean dialing down on some things and creating a household activity list featuring major work presentations, school projects and family events. Just remember to keep your priorities (and your sanity) in check while creating the list. All work and no play can lead to potential serial killers. Just ask Jack Nicholson and the rest of the cast of "The Shining."
