How To Become Better With Time Management

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great day! I am sharing with all of you how to tackle tasks quicker and become better with your time management. I know that this can be quite difficult and it can hard to motivate yourself to complete assignments, but I hope that these tips and tricks will help you!

Prioritize Wisely

  • Write down tasks based on urgency and importance

  • Important and urgent tasks- do these ones first!

  • Important- decide when you are going to do these tasks

  • To Do- set these aside to do later


Assign a Time Limit To Each Task

  • Schedule out a list of tasks to complete at a scheduled time, like study from 12pm-2pm Then, take a 30 minute break up until 2:30pm

  • Helps you be productive and stay on top of tasks


Use a Calendar

  • Evenly space out times and assignments

  • Write down due dates and deadlines

  • Helps manage all your activities


Be Aware of Your Deadlines

  • Makes notes of when you need to finish them

  • Get ahead, DO NOT wait until the last minute


Use a Timer

  • One of the most useful tools to have

  • Assign yourself 20-40 minutes doing a certain task and take 5 minute breaks in between

  • I recommend the Tomato Timer App


Be Early

  • If you know that the assignment is due on Friday, pretend that it is due on Wednesday

  • This tricks your mind to help you stay ahead and on top of your assignments


Set Reminders For Yourself

  • On your phone, computer, etc.; set reminders 15 minutes before the due date to ensure you have completed the assignment

  • With meetings, set reminders as well,15 minutes before it starts to prepare yourself


Focus!

  • DO NOT multitask! This is one of the worst things to do when you are trying to get ahead

  • Focus on one thing at a time

  • You can even close tabs that you are not using to eliminate distractions and help focus your mind on one task


Block Out Distractions

  • Anything and Everything that will keep you distracted, get rid of!

  • Put your phone on do not disturb and keep it away from you

  • Get things done in a quiet work space

  • Keep everything you need in one area--- pens, pencils, erasers, calculator, etc.


Track Your Time Spent

  • Use a countdown timer or just a regular timer to see how long it takes for you to complete certain tasks

  • This helps knowing what assignments you complete quicker and which ones take longer

  • Time pressure helps you stay focused and work more efficiently


Start a Routine and Stick With It

  • Once you have a daily routine, you will be productive and mange your time better
