Tips for Time Management:
  • Time never stops. Learn to utilize the time that you have to the fullest and make an effort to get the sense of fulfillment and satisfaction out of each moment.


  • Maintain an optimistic attitude and always try to seek out the best in your life. A good way to be an optimist is to enjoy whatever you do.


  • Failures are the pillars to success. Stop being sorry for your failures and make it a point to learn from them. Always find means to succeed from your failures.


  • Always keep time for important things. 

  • Do a self-review. If you have any habits that come in the way of your success find ways to mend or eliminate them. 


  • Prepare and maintain a regular to-do-list for each and every day. You can use a simple paper or a calendar to maintain this list.


  • Prepare and maintain a progress chart to review and revise your lifetime objectives. Mark your progress towards these lifetime goals on a daily basis and add reminders that will tell you what you would like to achieve at the end of a month.


  • Make sure that you plan each day of your life with proper care and set daily goals. Make sure to prioritize these daily goals.


  • Plan for things that you anticipate for a month and execute them in a manner so that you can achieve them ahead of schedule. 
  • Keep yourself motivated by rewarding yourself for everything that you manage to achieve on or before time.


  • Believe in yourself and your decisions. 

  • Attempt the difficult tasks first. 


  • Identify your unproductive tasks and try to eliminate them from your daily schedule. 

  • Make deadlines for yourself and push yourself to achieve them, may whatever come.

Dear Adarsha,

Developing time management skills is a journey
that may begin with this Guide, but needs practice and other guidance along the way.

One goal is to help yourself become aware of how you use your time
as one resource in organizing, prioritizing, and succeeding in your studies
in the context of competing activities of friends, work, family, etc.

First: try our exercise in time management:
How do you spend your time each day?

Strategies on using time:
These applications of time management have proven to be effective as good study habits.

As we go through each strategy, jot down an idea of what each will look like for you:

  • Blocks of study time and breaks
    As your school term begins and your course schedule is set, develop and plan for, blocks of study time in a typical week. Blocks ideally are around 50 minutes, but perhaps you become restless after only 30 minutes? Some difficult material may require more frequent breaks. Shorten your study blocks if necessary-but don't forget to return to the task at hand! What you do during your break should give you an opportunity to have a snack, relax, or otherwise refresh or re-energize yourself. For example, place blocks of time when you are most productive: are you a morning person or a night owl?
    • Jot down one best time block you can study. How long is it? What makes for a good break for you? Can you control the activity and return to your studies?
  • Dedicated study spaces
    Determine a place free from distraction (no cell phone or text messaging!) where you can maximize your concentration and be free of the distractions that friends or hobbies can bring! You should also have a back-up space that you can escape to, like the library, departmental study center, even a coffee shop where you can be anonymous. A change of venue may also bring extra resources.
    • What is the best study space you can think of? What is another?
  • Weekly reviews
    Weekly reviews and updates are also an important strategy. Each week, like a Sunday night, review your assignments, your notes, your calendar. Be mindful that as deadlines and exams approach, your weekly routine must adapt to them!
    • What is the best time in a week you can review?
  • Prioritize your assignments
    When studying, get in the habit of beginning with the most difficult subject or task. You'll be fresh, and have more energy to take them on when you are at your best. For more difficult courses of study, try to be flexible: for example, build in reaction time when you can get feedback on assignments before they are due.
    • What subject has always caused you problems?
  • Achieve "stage one"--get something done!
    The Chinese adage of the longest journey starting with a single step has a couple of meanings: First, you launch the project! Second, by starting, you may realize that there are some things you have not planned for in your process. Details of an assignment are not always evident until you begin the assignment. Another adage is that "perfection is the enemy of good", especially when it prevents you from starting! Given that you build in review, roughly draft your idea and get going! You will have time to edit and develop later.
    • What is a first step you can identify for an assignment to get yourself started?
  • Postpone unnecessary activities until the work is done!
    Postpone tasks or routines that can be put off until your school work is finished! 
    This can be the most difficult challenge of time management. As learners we always meet unexpected opportunities that look appealing, then result in poor performance on a test, on a paper, or in preparation for a task. Distracting activities will be more enjoyable later without the pressure of the test, assignment, etc. hanging over your head. Think in terms of pride of accomplishment. Instead of saying "no" learn to say "later".
    • What is one distraction that causes you to stop studying?
  • Identify resources to help you
    Are there tutors? An expert friend? Have you tried a keyword search on the Internet to get better explanations? Are there specialists in the library that can point you to resources? What about professionals and professional organizations. Using outside resources can save you time and energy, and solve problems.
    • Write down three examples for that difficult subject above? 
      Be as specific as possible.
  • Use your free time wisely
    Think of times when you can study "bits" as when walking, riding the bus, etc. Perhaps you've got music to listen to for your course in music appreciation, or drills in language learning? If you are walking or biking to school, when best to listen? Perhaps you are in a line waiting? Perfect for routine tasks like flash cards, or if you can concentrate, to read or review a chapter. The bottom line is to put your time to good use.
    • What is one example of applying free time to your studies?
  • Review notes and readings just before class
    This may prompt a question or two about something you don't quite understand, to ask about in class, or after. It also demonstrates to your teacher that you are interested and have prepared.
    • How would you make time to review?
      Is there free time you can use?
    • Review lecture notes just after class
      Then review lecture material immediately after class.
      The first 24 hours are critical. Forgetting is greatest within 24 hours without review!
      • How would you do this?
        Is there free time you can use?
  • Select one of the ten applications above.
    and develop a new study habit!

        Good Luck!!!!!!!!
