» When you pack a suitcase, if you just throw clothes and items in, it is hard to get everything packed. If you organize your clothes and items neatly, it usually all fits. » Your time is no different than the suitcase. It will only hold so much but how you arrange your time will help you be able to accomplish more with the time you have.
» Divide your time into categories: ˃Important – your most important things, your first things, activities that contribute to your mission and goals. ˃Urgent – pressing things, in-your-face things, activities that demand immediate attention. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens pg. 107

Why should we learn to manage our time? » Get more done- once you have established a list of tasks and prioritized them, you will find that you can get much more accomplished. No more running around attempting to do tasks and feeling as if you have not completed anything at the end of the day. » Gain control over your life- It might seem like your never-ending list of things to do runs your entire life. Until you create your list and prioritize your tasks, it is very possible to feel this way. » Add time to your daily life- By getting more done and gaining control over your life, you are without a doubt able to add time to your life. When you have prioritized and gotten tasks completed, you have more time for things that you want to do. » Reduce stress- Procrastination and constant chaos leads to stress. Stress leads to long-term health problems. Why put yourself through this?
Answering these questions will help you to prioritize your activities. What is most important to me? What are the activities that I value most? What is the most valuable use of my time right now? How long will it take to complete this task? How difficult is it to accomplish this task? Do I need the help of others to get the task done? What are the consequences of not completing this task? Will my decision affect others? Is there a deadline for any of the tasks?
Procrastination is your enemy
