Scheduling and Planning Tools
Using time intelligently can contribute to your academic success. These planners are designed to help you to develop goals, create a time management schedule, avoid procrastination, and take control of your time. As you read through the instructions and set-up your schedule, keep in mind that balancing your activities is most important. After all, (all work and no play) will stress you out, and (all play and no work) will cause you much frustration.
Balance, between class, study, work, and leisure activities, that’s the key to good time management.
Planning and Using a Daily Schedule
Establish a routine for class, study, work, and leisure activities that best utilizes your personal time and energy. Organize a schedule with an eye towards longer term goals. Keep your own energy cycle in mind when scheduling and try to become aware of your patterns of time abuse. What do you tend to do instead of what you should be doing? Try one of these daily schedule planners to assist you in the day-to-day pressure of college life. There are several formats to choose from.
Goal Setting & To Do Lists
To-Do Lists are essential if you're going to beat work overload. By keeping a To-Do List, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in one place so you don't forget anything important. And by prioritizing tasks, you plan the order in which you'll do them, so that you can tell what needs your immediate attention, and what you can leave until later.
