Tip of the Week

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS

  • Establish short and long term goals
  • Goals should be realistic, specific and concrete
  • Prioritize your goals
  • Write down specific steps to achieve your goals
  • Revise your goals every few months
  • Use a daily planner and keep it with you at all times
  • Make a "To Do" list every day and keep it in your planner
  • Prioritize your daily list, arrange them in order of importance and do them in that order (check "teacher assignments" or "work due" first!)
  • Plan your day the evening before and get the things you'll need in the morning ready too!
  • Take time out to relax and breathe
  • Use the "Swiss Cheese" approach to time-management. Break up large or unpleasant tasks into smaller, more easily managed bits ("poking holes in large tasks")
  • Use travel or bus time to plan or to read
  • Start to work according to your plan. Try to start the same time every day. Minimize the time you waste.
  • Plan a regular break too! Be realistic and reasonable
