Time Management How can I do it better? Pastoral Mentoring 2013-2014 TOD310120
Are you always being told that you need to be better organised or more productive? Do you often have a day of lots of activity and then wonder why you havent accomplished a lot at the end of it? Pastoral Mentoring and Study Support might be able to help…
What is it? Put really simply, time management is using your time as effectively as possible to achieve the best possible results for yourself. No matter how organised we are, remember that there are always only 24 hours in a day. Time doesn't change. All you can actually manage is yourself and what you do with the time that you have.
Why does it matter? For students of subjects in Forms 1-3, time management is absolutely vital because you have so many things to do if you are to succeed and get the grades you should be achieving. What makes managing your time really important is that it allows you to get good marks that you can and have a good time away from work as well. Time management doesnt mean you cant go out or have friends, it just means that you enjoy your time with them even more!
How can I do it? One way to do it is to sort out your time- bandits – these are things that take you away from your work for small periods of time. For example, do you spend too much time surfing on the internet, reading e-mails, texting or making personal calls? Limiting the time you spend on these things or setting aside some time can help you here.
How can I do it? There are lots of other ways to deal with these time-bandits – perhaps you might use the personal records sheet? Why not break your day from 4pm until 9pm into 15 minute chunks and split your work and leisure time into small bits?
