Managing Your Time

 

How can I plan to get everything done?

Develop a plan for how you are going manage your time to perform to the best of your ability in each course. Reflect on the demands of the entire term, not just the next exam, to achieve the success for which you strive.   

Understand the demands on your time.

Start with a list of everything you have to do such as courses, work, meals, studying, sleep, exercise, leisure time, research, student organizations, and volunteering.  

Develop your plan at the beginning of the semester.

After you have your list, you can then create your time management plan for the semester. Start by scheduling everything for which the time is non-negotiable, such as your courses, work obligations, and student organization meetings. You will then know when you have blocks of time available for studying and other activities.

Each week, schedule in details and make adjustments.

You will return to your plan each week to fill in details based on what assignments you have coming up and any changes to other demands.
