Time management. It’s difficult. Life is so full of things to do, deadlines to meet, obligations to fulfill, and places to be. So how do you make the most of your time and accomplish all your tasks?
This week I had four exams and several assignments due. I wouldn’t have been able to study and complete my assignments without planning my schedule out.
Here is how I manage my time.
- I keep a very detailed planner. Every time I make an appointment, receive a deadline, or have an event I immediately write down these details: what it is, where it is, approximately how long it will take, and any other useful information. This keeps me from forgetting about something and having to make a mad dash to get something done or from completely missing it at all.
- I write a to-do list in my planner every morning and constantly edit it to mark off what is done and what I have left. If I need to mail a bill or call someone, it gets done.
- I schedule when to work on assignments or study. If I didn’t I would procrastinate and would end up turning in something I wasn’t proud of.
With all of this being said, I don’t plan every minute of my day and I try to leave extra time to de-stress and relax. Organization just helps me to handle life a little better. I don’t stress as much about due assignments or whether I paid the electricity bill. The time I would have spent stressing can now be time to craft, spend time with family, or read a book.
