    Time management is essential to reduce stress and improve productivity, it is a necessary skill that needs to be learnt in order to cope with a large work load. 😦
    (*) indicates these can be transferred to a work situation.

    1) * Organise your to do list daily.
    2) * Prioritise – do the most important things first.
    3) Know when you work at your best be it mornings, afternoons or evenings.
    4) Allocate at least 2 hours (in your work best time: if possible) to finish off your most important work or outstanding work.
    5) * Work efficiently- procrastination does not help you get the work done.
    6) Do not multitask- you cannot watchTV, BBM, instant message and do your homework all at the same time, even if you think you can. (Unless you are a women 🙂 there are a few exceptions)
    7) * Do tasks well ahead of time as leaving work to the last minute is stressful and results in work that is usually below your standard.
    8) * Break up large time consuming tasks into smaller ones.
    9) * Take a 5min break every 45minutes/ 60minutes.
    10) Good motivation to finish tasks is by knowing that you can enjoy a night out with your friends once everything is completed.

      Thanks Lee

      Good post. Thank you for being the first and for really setting it out nicely. I appreciate the enthusiasm.

      PS: Remember not to rely only on female multi-tasking skills when managing time. It won’t help you forever…

    1. Get — and use — a calendar. It can be a paper calendar. It can be your cell phone. It can be a PDA. No matter what kind it is, though, make sure you have one.
    2. Write down everything. Write down everything in one place. (Having multiple calendars just gives you more to do amidst an already tight schedule.)
    3. Schedule time to relax. Don’t forget to schedule in time to relax and breathe. Just because your calendar goes from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. doesn’t mean you can.
    4. Keep trying new systems. If your cell phone calendar isn’t big enough, buy a paper one. If your paper one keeps getting torn, try a PDA. If you have too many things written down each day, try color-coding to help simplify.
    5. Allow for flexibility. Things inevitably come up that you weren’t expecting. You may not have known that your roommate’s birthday is this week, and you certainly don’t want to miss the celebrations! Leave room in your calendar so that you can move things around a little when needed.
    6. Plan ahead. If you have an assignment due in two weeks, work backward in your calendar and figure out how much time you need to write it, how much time you’ll need to research it, and how much time you’ll need to pick your topic. If you think you’ll need six weeks for the entire project, work backward from the due date and schedule the time into your calendar before it’s too late.
    7. Plan for the unexpected. What happens if you catch the flu the night you’re supposed to be pulling the all-nighter? Expect the unexpected so you don’t have to spend more unplanned time trying to fix your mistakes.
    8. Schedule rewards in. Your midterm’s week is a nightmare, but it will all be over Friday by 2:30. Schedule a fun afternoon and a nice dinner out with some friends; your brain will need it, and you can relax knowing that you’re not supposed to be doing anything else.
    9. Schedule when you plan to sleep, when you are going to do your laundry, when you’re going to call your parents. The crazier your schedule gets, the more important this becomes.
    10. Make sure that you enjoy every day with its good and bad, you only live once so live a little.

    If your paper one keeps getting torn, try a PDA. If you have too many things written down each day, try color-coding to help simplify. Very few college students make it through their programs without some kind of calendaring system; keep trying until you find one that

    works for you.

      Thanks for your post.

      I hope you don’t always have to plan to breathe. I trust that it comes naturally!

      Maybe just when the stress of exams come….

  3. Paula August 5, 2011 at 2:29 pm #

    • Prioritize your weekly schedule as a student
    • List the exact due dates for events, projects, essays, and other homework
    • Set a time limit on how long you study for each class
    Get at least 6-9 hours of sleep
    • Don’t neglect your health. Just because you’re short of time doesn’t mean you should live on junk food
    • Don’t stress
    • Balance your effort. Work on small portions every day. Do the daily tasks. Concentrate on what is at hand, and then move on to the next daily task. Once daily tasks are completed, proceed to the next step.
    • Decide upon the time of day. Some people are more productive in the morning than the evening.
    • Manage time in eg. Play a game with yourself by competing against time.
    • Give yourself a time limit to keep track of your progress
    • Reassess the list (rewrite and reprioritize your list as needed, add new tasks on to the list)

    • dylancromhout August 12, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

      Paula

      Good on you for prioritizing eating well. That should be important for all food production students.

    Time management is essential for everyone, especially students with part time work.

    1) Use your time wisely – study while sitting in traffic/using public transport.
    2) Make use of a dairy and actually use it.*
    3) Plan in advance – don’t leave assignments for the last momenet. Break them into smaller pieces and start on the assignment as soon as you get it*
    4) Switch off your phone/laptop ect while studying. Constant distractions will only break your concentration resulting in more time needed for studying.
    5) Write down extra notes when assignments are handed out – saves you the time of phoning to find it out.*
    6) Allow some me time and schedule it – all work and no play is wont make you more efficient.
    7) Prioritise and reprioritise – constantly. *
    8) Avoid overload – have 15min studybreaks/tea breaks every 60minutes and try to get some fresh air if possible.
    9)Have a vision – remind yourself of your goals, it will motivate you thus allowing you to use your time wisely.*
    10) Dont procasternate = stop facebooking! It will only leave you feeling more stressed. *
    * can be used in the work environment as well.

    Time management is essential for each and everyone. It helps you mange your time and plan ahead,improves stress levels.Thus making it so essntial for times when their is a load of work.(><,).
    1. Plan ahead. Make use of a calender and write out all your due dates for assignments, projects,essays,presentations.
    2.Decide on time . Day? Night? Morning? When you are most productive to do work.
    3. Don't neglect your health, without eating you can't concentrate and increases your stress levels.
    4.Take a break, 15 minutes for every 50minutes.
    5.Focus on your goals and visions, to help you stay motivated to go on.
    6.Always make time for yourslelf, have a little fun.

    • dylancromhout August 12, 2011 at 4:21 pm #

      Thanks Deidre

      It’s good to stay calm and to eat well. The more balanced our lives the more we can accomplish.

    1. Make a To-Do List Every Day.

    Put things that are most important at the top and do them first. Don’t forget to reward yourself for your accomplishments.

    2. Use Spare Minutes Wisely.

    When you’re traveling on the bus or train, use the time to get some reading done.

    3. It’s Okay to Say No.

    If your friend asks you to go to a movie on a Thursday night and you have an exam the next morning, realize that it’s okay to say no. Always keep your short- and long-term priorities in mind.

    4. Find the Right Time.

    You’ll work more efficiently if you figure out when you do your best work and work that time.

    5. Review Your Notes Every Day.

    Reviewing helps you refresh what you’ve learned, so you need less time to study before a big test.

    6. Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

    Your brain needs rest to perform at its peak. Lack of sleep makes the day seem longer and your tasks seem more difficult.

    7. Communicate Your Schedule to Others.

    If phone calls or text messages are proving to be a distraction, tell your friends that you are only available at certain times of day and not to expect a response at other times.

    8. Become a Taskmaster.

    Give yourself a time budget and plan your activities accordingly. Figure out how much free time you have each week before you add any other commitments.

    9. Don’t Waste Time Agonizing.

    Instead of agonizing and procrastinating, just do it. Wasting an entire evening worrying about something that you’re supposed to be doing is not productive,in just increase your stress and lessens your time to actually do it.

    10. Determine Your Priorities.

    You can’t do everything at once. Establish the importance of each item. Then set realistic goals that are attainable.

    • dylancromhout August 12, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

      Shelbe

      A very practical list. I like your comments on saying no to your friends and just being realistic about what you to do. No use stressing about something. Just do it! Stress gone. Simple 🙂

    My Ten Hints as a Student with a part time work:
    1) As a student, make use of the opportunities to ask the lecturers questions which you don’t understand.
    2) Use time effectively and wisely_ Don’t waste time. this could count for the working environment as well.
    3) Always be productive, do your best in every task you get assigned to_Counts for working environment, because time is a very important factor today and wasted time can never be replaced.
    4) Try to get enough sleep-at least 6-7hours. Try not to do unnecessary things. Sleep is very important for students, helps with focus etc.
    5) As a student, go through notes well in advance to save time and to prepare yourself in a way.
    6) Learn as much as you can_Participate in activities, try to learn new skills wherever you go. _this could also be applied in the working environment.
    7) MANAGE TIME- Set up a study timetable & manage your working hours in such a way that the studies don’t get neglected.-> Working environment as well.
    8) Try your best to work on Tuts and assignments well in advance to save time_ As both a student and a part time worker, EAT well & drink lots of water!!!NB
    9) If possible, as a student, go through notes everyday just to keep yourself in tact with the work also allowing the work not to pile up. Be sure to take breaks-it’s important.
    10) As a student, try to attend classes and stay in contact with the lecturer. in the working environment, try your best to always be of some kind of helping hand. This way, you don’t just do good, but you as a part time worker learn new skills etc.

      I like point 6 where you say that you must take advantage of every opportunity where you can learn. That is very important. Learning can happen at the most random times. We must be awake to learn at every turn.

      Thanks for your participation!

    Team Management

    -Develop a time table which allows you to manage you time properly.

    -Find out where you are wasting time during the day (conquer procrastination)

    – Create time management goals (set goals) which are specific measurable and most of all realistic.

    -use a to do list.

    -time allows for interruptions and distractions so be (flexible)

    -eliminate the urge (start with the important task)

    -unplug TV, radio, switch off phones (blackberry)

    -say no to non essential tasks.

    -use the lomin rule (work on a hard task for 10min you might even finish it)

    -plenty of sleep, healthy diet and exercise often.

    • dylancromhout August 12, 2011 at 4:28 pm #

      Thanks Junaid

      Simple and too the point.

      So, are you gonna turn your BB off in my class so you can concentrate and “conquer procrastination”….???

      Nice post

    time management for working students:
    1. firstly, make a note of each due date, test, working shift etc…this ensure you do not forget what you need to do. add it as a memo on your cellphone, calender or diary.#
    2. start on each task as soon as possible as procrastination can cause many more problems for you.
    3. set the due date a day before it is actually due, to ensure you can get it done on time. having it done the day before takes some stress off and gives you extra time to check your work or adjust it accordingly.
    4. set a time schedule for yourself, (as you would on a production day) and allocate a set time for your daily tasks. use this as a GUIDELINE, as it would be unrealistic to follow a piece of paper and things don’t always go our way.#
    5. get your priorities straight- although we all need time to have some fun, do whatever is important first and get it out of the way.# be in class as much as possible and be focused. also, if a class is canceled, use that time to actually do some work (recap or summarize your notes.)
    6. don’t fall into peer pressure- if your friends want to have some fun, and you’re overloaded with work,make the right choice!#
    7.be organized-# if you are well organized i.e. you have a folder, or file etc.. for each subject or model this saves time in that you do not waste time looking for misplaced notes.
    8. get enough rest- in doing so, we won’t feel lazy and lethargic the following day, work will be done productively and efficiently.#
    9. make sure your work manager knows you are a student, so that they do not always overwhelm you with hectic shifts..Although we could use the extra money, if your work calls upon you on your off day it would be better to decline as that time could be used to get some work done or study.
    10. Always be motivated and optimistic, remind yourself of the goal and what you plan to achieve, realize that even though it is stressful at times, it may all be worth it. give yourself a little incentive and reward yourself once you have completed what was needed.#
    [#- applies to a working situation]

      You are right, getting exercise is important. Even if it is just a quick run. Gets the blood flowing and the brain full of oxygen.

      Thanks for your post

  13. Sheila Bandoraho August 10, 2011 at 4:02 pm #

    1. set a reminder on your phone and calender. This way when you are checking messages on bbm it is there staring at you and you cant ignore it!

    2. Get a personal planner- For those who are technologically challenged, having a day planner helps one with time management.

    3. Take breaks- too much work will harm the brain. take a walk. ( freah air always clears the mind.)

    4. Set out a study schedule.

    5. Dont leave things to the last minute.

    6. Get around 8-9 hours sleep, it helps one focus the following morning.

    7. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,it helps with concentration.

    8.Talk to your manager if you need time off to complete assignments. Dont take on overtime or double shifts.

    9. Decide on a time to study, see which time of the day would be more productive without any distractions.

    10.Always make time to see you lecturer if there is something you dont understand.

    * use a diarry to plan and schedule all your work
    *make own time table that will guide you through your work and studies
    *in order to have an equilibrium between studies and work, one needs to attend all lectures
    *be time conscious in all your deeds
    *be organised and do not cheat yourself
    *eat in the morning before conducting any work since hunger is the deriving force of absconding lectures or sleeping during lectures
    *on your own timetable leisure should constitute 3/8 of your time since all work and no play will produce a dull mind
    *be punctual at all times
    *browse all your notes after lectures, so that you won’t forget what you learnt that day
    *a good night’s sleep also helps to relax the mind

    Basically as a stuadant, what is required of you is to study well and do all your activities, studants always work under pressure because they lack time management. For you to work properly and be succesful with what ever you are working out you need to have good time management. The following will rescue you from working under pressure and messing things because of lack of time:-) * note these also apply to working class individuals*

    1. Make a To-Do List Every Day:
    Put things that are most important at the top and do them first. And
    don’t forget to reward yourself for your accomplishments.

    2. Use Spare Minutes Wisely:
    When you’re commuting on the bus or train, use the time to get some reading done.:-)

    3.Clear out what are your obligations:
    Locate the points on which you could make some changes and clear out which of these are actually your obligations and responsibilities

    4.Indentify your deadlines:
    Record in an initial list what you should do and when it must be completed, divide the activities per day / week and long-term goals, to get a clear picture of what you have to do and when.

    5. Determine Your Priorities:
    You can’t do everything at once. Establish the importance of each item. Then set realistic goals that are attainable.

    6. Be realistic:
    Make sure that your objectives are realistic and do not try for the impossible.

    7. It’s Okay to Say No:
    If your friend asks you to go to a movie on a Thursday night and you have an exam the next morning, realize that it’s okay to say no. Keep your short- and long-term priorities in mind.

    8.Review Your Notes Every Day:
    Reviewing helps you reinforce what you’ve learned, so you need less time to study before a test. You’ll also be ready if you get called on in class or have to take a pop quiz.;-)

    9.Get a Good Night’s Sleep:
    Your brain needs rest to perform at its peak. Lack of sleep makes the day seem longer and your tasks seem more difficult:-0

    10.Communicate Your Schedule to Others:
    If phone calls or text messages are proving to be a distraction, tell your friends that you are only available at certain times of day and not to expect a response at other times.

    Time management is the act or process of exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase efficiency or productivity.
    steps ivolve in time management.
    1.Set goals :both at work and at home, to determine exactly what it is that you want to achieve. You will use these goals later to help prioritise and decide what tasks and activities you should work on, and in which order.
    2.Plan :When planning your schedule, be realistic: what can you really achieve with each time slot during your day? Be sure not to over-commit yourself to others, which will cause unnecessary stress. There is a limit to what you can get done each day.and easy work should be done between difficut work.
    3. Prioritise. write your goals on a list you can keep close at hand during the day, at least until you grow accustomed to your new system. Assign incoming tasks according to a priority system: 1, 2, 3 or A, B, C, or even a colour system. Use whichever you prefer, and add as many levels of importance as you think you need, without overcomplicating the system. Unnecessary complication can add to stress.
    4.. Set deadlines. Now that you’ve got your goals, priorities, and schedule clear, review your deadlines. Chances are, you’ve already been given deadlines for most of your tasks. If not, make your own, taking into consideration your priority criteria. If you let tasks float around without being formally added to your schedule, odds are you’ll procrastinate on them and they won’t get done until you’re asked about them…and by that time, you’ll most likely be expected to deliver ASAP, causing unnecessary stress.
    5. End procrastination…now .You’ve already made sure that each task has its own deadline, so you’re clear about when things are due. Don’t delay tasks that you perceive as less desirable until the last minute. They won’t disappear on their own, and you’ve got to get them done at some point, so it’s best to just get them over with.
    6.Minimise distractions.distractions can keep you from working on priority tasks. You know what they are: email, instant messaging, phone calls, the internet, co-workers, or a noisy environment. Keep a week-long interruption log, similar to your activity log. Make note of Time (of day), Interruption, Duration, and Priority
    7. Avoid sleepiness. If you’re still feeling tired at work, go outside for a walk as part of one of your mini-breaks. This will help you get some fresh air and move around, which may help increase your energy levels and productivity.
    8. Watch what you eat and drink. When you don’t drink enough water throughout the day, you quickly become dehydrated, and you may not be able to think clearly and focus on your work. There are a couple of ways to stay hydrated: either keep a large water bottle on your desk, and drink it regularly throughout the day, or integrate water drinking into your hourly mini-break.
    if students fallow this steps in time management it will improve their performance.

    Have time table, follow it and avoid distractions. Have enough time to rest, learn to say no sometimes. Don’t leave things for last minutes, have a note book for ideas, make use of knowledge or informationto help you. Do not postpone tasks, make list & delete when finish. Spare time, use time wisely and do one thing at a time. Prioritising (what is more important, what is less important). Organize your space( office, boardroom e.t.c) and inform others about your plan.

    1.Enjoy the crossover between work and study. Full-time students may appear enviable to you but they are missing out on the key ingredient that is pushing you – work experience. Already working provides added value to your study, by providing real-life insights and examples that can help you better understand your studies. Even if your work and studies are completely unrelated, work is still providing you with the skills of prioritizing, managing, balancing tasks, time-management, dealing with colleagues and customers etc. All of this is invaluable when compared to the inexperience of a full-time student.

    2.2Get yourself motivated by staying in contact with your classmates. Use the e-mail to share ideas and brainstorm responses to assignments. When studying and working, it can be easy to lose motivation without constant student contact, so make the most of technology to “cybermeet”. Try to catch up before or after classes occasionally to put faces to the names.

    3.Have good time management. Set up a daily or weekly plan for yourself and ensure that you set aside time for your studies daily. Vary the study times to fit in with other commitments such as family, sports etc. Be aware, and accept, that your weekends are likely to be eaten into by at least some regular study. Depending on your commitments and need for sleep, early Saturday or Sunday mornings can be a good choice to allow you free time later on both days for family, religious observation, sport, friends, other activities etc.

    4.3Set goals and reward yourself when you attain them – this is a great self-motivating habit. One great goal is time off from studying!

    5.Organizational skills are also part of time management. Why do you think PDA’s have made such a strong push into the market, because we all need to schedule our days. It is difficult to remember everything which needs to be done every single day without the help of a paper book planner or electronic planner. In the process of time management, planners which are listed by each day and time are the best in helping a student learn how to manage their own time.

    6.When it comes to studying, keeping track of your time is an important factor. For example, if you have four research papers due in the same week, managing your time to complete them is a very important aspect of time management. Decide which paper you want to begin with and section out your time so you are not cramming the night before to complete all the papers.

    7.Time management is a critical skill when it comes to studying. Prioritizing and organizing also need to be followed as well. For instance, if you are writing a paper, and you have only completed half of the necessary research and writing, do you think it’s a good time to start editing and playing around with fonts and formatting?

    8.Inform your employer that you’re attending school while working: You may be surprised at how accommodating your boss can be. Some may give you more flexible hours or allow you to take more time off to meet your school needs. Keep in mind that you should be able to return the courtesy and give your employer plenty of notice if you need time off for exams or other school obligations.
    Similarly, your company may have a plan in place to help with your tuition, depending on what you’re studying and whether it benefits your current career path. It’s worth looking in to what education benefits your job may offer.

    9.Remember to sleep: If you don’t make time for enough sleep, you won’t function as effectively, making both your work and studying take longer. While you may think that staying up late helps you get more done, in the long run, it slows you down and causes stresses. Taking proper care of yourself helps you perform at your best

    10.Don’t take too many courses at one time: It’s okay if you take a bit longer than normal to get your degree. Remember, you can attend school year-round, even in the summer. It’s better to do one course at a time, if necessary, than let your education suffer as a result.

    Time management:is a tool that helps increase your productivity and decrease your stess level.
    In order to manage your time effectively you need to:
    1. Manage yourself: know exactly what you need to do with your time
    2. Set some goals for yourself: what is it you need to achieve
    3. Time wastage: find out where you waste most of your time
    4. Draw up a time managementr plan for yourself
    5. Follow up: Check if you accomplishing your goals
    6. Know where you want to spend your time in the future
    7. prioritize your tasks: start with the most important
    8.Share your tasks: let your working team help you with some of the work if possible
    9. Set time limits for your daily tasks: give youself finishing time for each
    10.Do not allow other people to waste your time:for an appointment have something else to do with you in case they are late.

  30. sonele August 12, 2011 at 1:10 pm #

    Be Organized

    use appointment calendars, “to do” lists and diaries. Have an organized workplace (don’t waste time constantly looking for your work).

    2.Plan Ahead

    Determine how long your tasks will take
    Determine if big tasks can be broken down into smaller tasks that may be easier to schedule

    3. Prioritize Your Tasks
    Don’t postpone the small tasks

    4. Avoid Overload

    Include time for rest, relaxation, sleep, eating, exercise, and socializing in your schedule.
    Take short breaks during study and work periods.
    Don’t put everything off until the last minute (for example, don’t cram for exams).

    5. Split large tasks into more manageable tasks.

    6. ask questions as they come up during study, rather than waiting until just before an exam.
    7. Do the most difficult work first, perhaps breaking it up with some easier tasks.

    8.Don’t wait until the last minute to complete your projects

    9. Know how to rearrange your schedule when necessary (so it doesn’t manage you – you manage it).
    10. Know who to ask for help when needed.

  31. Mbula Somila August 13, 2011 at 1:26 pm #

    1. Make a To-Do List Every Day.
    Put things that are most important at the top and do them first. And don’t forget to reward yourself for your accomplishments.
    2. Use Spare Minutes Wisely.
    When you’re commuting on the bus or train, use the time to get some reading done.

    3. It’s Okay to Say No.
    If your friend asks you to go to a movie on a Thursday night and you have an exam the next morning, realize that it’s okay to say no. Keep your short- and long-term priorities in mind.

    4. Find the Right Time.
    You’ll work more efficiently if you figure out when you do your best work. For example, if your brain handles math better in the afternoon, don’t wait to do it until late at night.

    5. Review Your Notes Every Day.
    Reviewing helps you reinforce what you’ve learned, so you need less time to study before a test. You’ll also be ready if you get called on in class or have to take a pop quiz.

    6. Get a Good Night’s Sleep.
    Your brain needs rest to perform at its peak. Lack of sleep makes the day seem longer and your tasks seem more difficult.

    7. Communicate Your Schedule to Others.
    If phone calls or text messages are proving to be a distraction, tell your friends that you are only available at certain times of day and not to expect a response at other times.

    8. Become a Taskmaster.
    Give yourself a time budget and plan your activities accordingly. Figure out how much free time you have each week before you add any commitments.

    9. Don’t Waste Time Agonizing.
    Instead of agonizing and procrastinating, just do it. Wasting an entire evening worrying about something that you’re supposed to be doing is not productive, and can increase your stress.

    10. Determine Your Priorities.
    You can’t do everything at once. Establish the importance of each item. Then set realistic goals that are attainable.
    Back to top

    Ten time management tips for the student with a part-time job:

    1- set yourself realistic goals(marks you want to achieve on the next test/end of term)
    2- draw up a time roster where you allocate time for specific tasks and stick to it
    3- plan ahead by using a diary
    4- learn to say no to friends when u need to be doing work(personally thats the hardest 1)
    5- do a little bit of work everyday, theres always something that needs to be done, don’t think oh today i can just chill
    6- when assignments are recieved, start with them immediately, don’t leave it till the last minute
    7- study in advance for big tests, not the day before
    8- prioritise- figure out what things are most important and require most of your attention and then plan other things around that
    9- switch off your phone and stay away from any other distractions while studying
    10- break up large tasks into smaller steps that can be done gradually;)

  33. Callan Arendse August 15, 2011 at 7:13 am #

    1. Set up a realistic work schedule (and actually stick to it:)) include what needs to be done and by when it needs to be done.
    2. Use your time effectively.
    3. Make sure your managers know that you’re a student so that you can be excused from work duties incase of tests or classes that you need to attend.
    4. Even if you have no deadlines or a on a weekend, take at least 1hr to study.
    5. Make sure you get enough sleep. At least 7hrs. You tend not to be focussed if you’re deprived of sleep.
    6. Try following a balanced diet and drink enough water. You’ll feel tired and listless if you’re not eating right or when you’re dehydrated.
    7. Don’t wait till the night before a deadline to start studying or working on assignnments. Start working well ahead of time. Never let work pile up. Postponing “little” assignments can end up being a massive workload if completed at once.
    9. Keep a good balance between your work and studies. Don’t neglect the 1 to work on the other.
    10. Make use of a diary. This keeps you up to date with “things to do”. At the end of a busy week give yourself a treat. This keeps you motivated

  34. Simthembile August 17, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

    1. Use Multiple To-Do Lists
    you might maintain separate lists for each area of your life, such as home (for grocery lists, bills, and household tasks), social (for lists of friends and family to call, email, or contact on Facebook), and school (obviously, for maintaining lists of school-related tasks, like assignments and meetings with professors).

    2. Break Each Large Task into Actionable Easy Tasks
    The trick to making consistent progress on your tasks, especially academic tasks, is to separate each task into all of the smaller component tasks.

    3. Prioritize Your Tasks
    Once you prepare your lists you may find that you have much more to do than you ever realized – and feel pressured for time. Breathe. Relax. You don’t have to do it all now. Some of it can wait a little while, more of it can wait even longer, and some of it may never get done. That’s ok — if you prioritize your tasks.

    4. Seat deadlines for Yourself
    you must draft down the time to finish ur work

    5. Be Flexible
    While to-do lists are wonderful for helping you to organize and prioritize your life, remember that there will always be interruptions and distractions. Try to allow time for them

    6. Go with Your Flow
    Consider your own biological peaks and lows. Are you a morning person? Or are you at your best at night? Plan your day accordingly. Save your most difficult work for the times when you’re at your best.

    7. Say “No.”
    Sometimes we take on too much. Whether it’s extra courses, job responsibilities, or extracurricular activities, consider how important each is to you before agreeing

    8. Make Use of Wasted Time
    time you spend commuting, standing in lines, and waiting (for doctors, advisors, etc.)? Carry pocket work to make use of that time that would otherwise be wasted. Carry a short reading assignment or flash cards for studying. Or use the time to write in your planner and organize yourself. Ten minutes here, fifteen minutes there, it all adds up and you’ll find that you can get more done.

    9. Stop procrastinating
    It’s human nature to postpone unpleasant tasks. Schedule some of the more fun aspects of the project to follow the negative ones.

    10. Keep busy
    make sure you dont spend yourtime playing around or doing jokes while there is work to be done, rather finish work then play

    In order to balance your priorities well you need something like “time management” or else it will be Chaos!
    1 Personally, Keeping diary of your tasks would be a first step for me even though its an effort to do at times it really helps you to keep track of what lies ahead for you.
    2. Based on your diary, set yourself a realistic scedjule on when an how you will complete your tasks, in order of importance, and by all means try an stick to it.
    3. Being a university student, you need to accept that you will need to make sacrifices at times, infact all the time! so cut out on things that are of lesser importance to existence like frequent partying etc.
    4. Make certain that your job does not clash with the times that you need to be in class by making sure your employee is aware of your studies, request for that to be taken into consideration at times.
    5. When you find a time that you are actually “free” use it to do something meaningful like sleep! This will help to relax and gain energy
    6. Asscociate yourself with positive, motivating people who can keep you focused when at times you feel like slacking down. Do not get tempted to follow the bad 1s
    7. Work on your bad habits like lazyness, procrostinating and waiting to be stirred into something before doing it! Remember that every1 else around you has goals just like you do and are too trying there best to accomplish them so why cant you?
    8. Be in every class possible and make sure you understand what was said especially concerning assignments, sometimes you not certain as to what you must do hence you dnt do it or leave it for the last minute so find clearance.
    9. When things are really hectic get assistance on things like home chores, laundry etc. mom will understand 🙂 and at work…a person who can stand in for you at times .
    10. Dnt forget to stick to that diary scedjule! (goes for me toooo)
    *Steps that would be suitable in a work situation will be 1,2,6 and 7*

    2.Start to study before time and do assignments before time to reduce the pressure.
    3.Use time of commuting studying books and doing exercises.
    4.You must be able to manage schedule effectively if you take on part time job.

    7.Be subscribed to your classmates so that they will give something like scope and home
    8. Be prepared to say no to requests you’d normally take on either at home or at work.
    9Alway check your emails often so that you can see any request 8.
    work

    8.Set up a spot where you feel comfortable working. Use anything which will help you

    focus: timetables, your goals written on a wall, coloured pens, mind maps, flowers at your work space. Think about the time of day you study best. For some people, that may be first thing in the morning, say at 4:00.

  39. Rugare Kufa August 21, 2011 at 8:01 pm #

    Time management and organisation go hand in hand. When doing a course like ours, it will really be hectic working as well. This means that you will always have several tasks to complete at a time. From experience it is quite common to forget some things e.g assignments, when you have a lot going on in your life. So first of all i suggest:
    1) One should have a diary in which they can write all the information to keep themselves updated. Its good to have other contacts e.g emails or telephone details where more information either at school or at work.
    2)It is very important to wake up early, waking up late will only push all the other activities further, its like a chain reaction, everything else drags as well.
    3)As a student, it is good to get everything out of the way as soon as possible, you get an assignment ,you do it right away so that the work does not pile up, since the work does not seem to stop coming, it keeps coming!
    4)It is important to be fully detailed in everything, i really believe confusion is the only thing that inhibits progress. Usually its only when someone does not fully understand exactly what they should do that they end up dragging in the whole process. It is good for a student to be fully aware of the requirements, if they do not understand, it is good to ask.
    5) I strongly believe that one does not know everything, it is important to talk to other people who are or have been in the same situation as you and learn how they managed or are managing to keep things intact,one may get an idea or two.
    6)It is extremely important to put heart to everything that one does, as this may lead to repetition of things that could have been done once off, e.g repeating a test (reassessments) or even being ordered to repeat a particular duty. Also important to follow instructions.
    7)Usually, the mind works best in areas of interest, it is a good thing to be interested in what one does, if not interested one must try to generate interest as lack of interest may lead to slackening of duties and lesser progress.
    8)It is important for a person to perfectly understand themself and know their capabilities. If one works or loads themself beyond their capabilities, stress will errupt causing confusion and tiredness. It is good to work and learn but at the same time the two must be equally balanced.
    9)There is always an easy way out to every task, most people are pressured (conciously or unconciously) into doing things the way other people do them, this is straineous, we are all different and each person works in their own way. One will figure out that if they try to be themselves and work in their own way and personality they may even make more progress rather than trying to imitate someone else.
    10)Most of all, all work and no play makes Jill a dull boy, therefore one must have sufficient time of rest and relaxation.

  40. leocardia ranga August 21, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    1) talk to people that who have been there-in this kind of situation and get tips and ideas on how to use time wisely

    2) implement those ideas and get out my diary and plan my week schedule with my school timetable handy
    3) become self disciplined as to try and follow this to-do list(if you are religious,try to pray as well for this to happen)
    4) set up goals and make up your mind on the things that you really want to achieve in your schooling and in life(set targets for your achievements in exams)
    5) PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS,this will help even your reading process-it will be like a walk over unlike if your do not pay attention, time will be lost when you now want to first catch up with what the lecturer was saying and sometimes you will lose this battle and you will end up failing
    6) when you have time after school,do all your assignments that you were given that day if possible so that you will not pile up the work load
    7) if you finish school early before you start work, get a siesta to recharge your batteries-so you will be geared for work and you do your best there as well
    8) after work, get into the shower and freshen up..then you can go through all the work that you have learnt that day in lectures-this will make life easier for you when exam time comes because you will have done most of the reading and this saves time as it will be just a walk over
    9) eat healthy-this will prevent you from getting a disease that will affect your time plan and as a result pile up all the work which will be waiting for you when you heal(this is an indirect tip)
    10) get a good night sleep(your body deserves this) and in the morning do not forget your breakfast-this will help you make those goals and day plans possible(gives you the fuel to make it happen)

    Time management and organisation go hand in hand. In order to manage time well one must be goal oriented, perfectly understand why something has to be done. Effective working usually has a motivation behind it. When one is fully motivated to archieve a certain goal, its like everything that follows automatically falls into place. The following principles can be incoperated as well especially by someone who has their priorities right.
    1) It is important to be well informed all the time. It is very difficult to keep everything in one’s mind, therefore diarising is vital.
    2)One must wake up early, if one happens to wake up late, its like a chain reaction, everything else that will be done during the course of that day will be delayed,as the first task was delayed.
    3)It is vital for one to perfectly understand exactly what is expected of them. In most cases the only reason why tasks are delayed is lack of understanding(confusion). It is extremely difficult for one to do something they do not really understand. It is advised that when one does not understand, they should ask.
    4)Tasks should not be allowed to pile up, for example assignments must be done as soon as they are given. This also helps one to work with a more relaxed mind which promotes more progress.
    5) One must put heart to whatever they do. This prevents unnecessary repetition as this is a waste of time. For example, repeating a test or a certain task at work. This can be avoided by following instructions as well.
    6) It is greatly believed that the mind works best in the areas of interest. Therefore it is important for one to choose something they are interested in. If they happened to be just there and they do not have a choice, interested must be by any means be generated in order for things to move forward.
    7)It is important for one to perfectly understand themself, i.e to know their capabilities. Overloading oneself with what is beyond their strength will only generate stress and slackening.
    8)People have a tendency to imitate other people (conciously or unconciously) in terms of the way they peform certain duties or so. This is disturbing as it is straineous. One must do a task a way that they can, we are all different and we think differently. It is important to learn this.
    9)There is nothing like a good nght’s sleep after a hectic day. All work and no play makes Jill a dull boy. One must get sufficient good night rest.
    10)Most of all self reflection is quite important. One must give themselves credit for things done perfectly and note all those areas where progress has not been archieved, adapt so that next time time is used wisely. Above all no one knows everything, one must put their pride in their pocket and talk to people who are or have been in a similar situation , as they may get an idea or two to improve their time management.
