Time Management iN college

The two biggest Myths about Studying

1. Multitasking is when we juggle multiple things (thoughts and actions) at the same time. People who multitask are actually less productive than those who just concentrate on one project a time.

A recent Harvard Business Review post said multitasking leads to as much as a 40% drop in productivity, increased stress, and a 10% drop in IQ.

2. Studying is fast: Studying is not fast! Study multiple subjects each day, rather than focusing on just one or two subjects. Because you’re likely to confuse similar information if you study a lot of the same subject in one day.

Plan your days in advance. Start studying for your tests days in advance, depending on your difficulties in the class.

Say no to friends weekly, dedicate a day where you will study and not allow distractions.

The most fundamental of time management skills is the ability to use your time in a manner which serves your goals.

Prioritising, Prioritising should not begin with a focus on getting more work done. Prioritisation should always begin with avoiding/eliminating the tasks which you should not be performing. Once this has been done, you can switch your focus to completing the most valuable work you can with the time and resources available to you.

We are motivated by different things and like to work in our own way. There is nothing wrong with this. In fact, it is quite healthy. It just means that you need to have a good understanding of your own likes, dislikes and needs. META-COGNITION

You need to be able to motivate yourself to take action, even though you’d rather not. If you have improved your self-awareness, you will have a great deal of the information that you need to motivate yourself.

Suggestions for Time Management:

Get a planner to record, analyze, and change your routine for best time management.

Record when assignments are due, plan to have them finished a day in advance.

Time your self for each subject you plan to study each day.
