Time-Management Made Easy

At some point or another, we’ve all had the feeling that there aren’t enough hours in the day. Between classes and work, homework and practice, working until the late hours of the night becomes normal and sleep becomes a luxury. Good time-management becomes more crucial in college than ever before. We’re here to help you stay on track!

Prioritize.

 

Determine which assignments or tasks are most important and plan to get those done first. If something can wait until later in the week, work on it after the more immediate items are completed.

 

 

Make a To-Do List.

You can’t manage your time unless you’re aware of everything you need to get done. Each week, figure out exactly what you need to accomplish. Then, break it down each day and list out what items you want to get through. Rearrange when necessary (for example – a professor adds/takes away an assignment).

Pencil in Non-Academic or Non-Work-Related Items.

You need to eat. You need to sleep. Make sure to take these things into account when building out a to-do list. Have four assignments to get done? Plan to eat dinner between Numbers 2 and 3. This will give you a more realistic view of what you’ll be getting done. Also take your social calendar into account. Is there a big game you want to attend on Saturday? See if you can work that into your schedule and plan to get your assignments done ahead of time.

Stick to Your Schedule.

 

It’s great to get an agenda down and know what you need to get done. It’s even better when you actually stick to that schedule. The more prepared you are during the semester, the less stressed you’ll be. Staying on track takes a bit of work, but it’s worth it!
