College Life: Learning to manage your time – Part 2

Time is one of the most difficult things to manage in college. With lots of tasks and activities to complete and keep track of, it is important to manage your time well. This is part 2 of a two-part article that provides tips on managing your time in college.

Time Management Tip #5: Keep trying new things

A PDA may not work well for you or a diary gets torn or lost. Try other systems till things work for you. If you are planning down every minute but are unable to keep up with it, try only listing your to-do’s for a change and picking up what is most important and/or urgent. Keep trying new things till something works well for you.

Time Management Tip #6: Plan, plan, plan!

All big tasks need to be planned out well in advance. If you have a big research paper to write or perhaps you are writing your dissertation, you need to divide this large task into smaller, manageable chunks of activities that are required to complete the large task. Plan these small chunks instead of having one task at the end of month which you cannot track well.

Time Management Tip #7: Plan for the unexpected

Your best plans may not work out if you fall sick at the last minute or have a personal emergency back at home. It is better to plan keeping in mind that something unexpected could happen. Instead of leaving tasks for last-minute, try to schedule them as early as possible to avoid problems if something unexpected happens later.

Time Management Tip #8: Reward yourself

It is very important to keep encouraging yourself. This can be as simple as eating a favorite ice cream or relaxing for a good period of time. Use what works best for you to keep motivating yourself.
