    He has a lot on his mind.

    I came across the sentence He has a lot on his mind when reading a text about a man who is a school principal (headmaster). In the text, I think it meant that he has a lot of ideas and plans related to his work. Can I use this sentence when describing a boy's elder brother who is a student and often comes up with interesting games and activities to have fun with his younger brother?
    If yes, could you tell me in what other contexts I could use this phrase? (For example, can we say that a criminal has a lot on his mind, a lot of evil schemes?)
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Not really. He has a lot on his mind generally means he has many things to think (or worry) about.
