As a good time manager you will:
- prioritize your goals/tasks and schedule your time accordingly.
- build blocks of time into your schedule for purposeful reflection, planning, and self-care.
- create “spare-time” blocks in your day; they are important and often disregarded when busy.
Prioritizing Your Tasks
Start by prioritizing your tasks into different types - big, medium, small.
These high-priority tasks are important things that happen regularly at a set time.
For example: classes, labs, work shifts
These tasks are important and must happen routinely, but the time is up to you.
For example: study sessions, class readings, library research, self-care such as workouts and meditation
These are tasks that are still necessary to do but they are flexible, can be done at any time, and fit in easily around the other tasks.
For example: socializing, washing laundry, gaming
Next, learn about a larger strategy for grouping your tasks by urgency and importance.
