Tips for Time Management
- Write down due dates (Using Blackboard and your syllabi )
- Find and use the organizational/planning tool that works best for you (Planner, app, spreadsheet, desk calendar, whiteboard, sticky notes, etc.)
- Break it down (What steps do you need to accomplish to complete the task?)
- Work backwards (When is it due? How can you space out the steps to complete the task?)
Did you know?
Research suggests that procrastination is a mood and emotion regulation issue, not a time management issue. You can use your behavior to change your emotions, so...
- Just do the next thing (Concentrate on the next task only)
- Build momentum (Commit to working only for five minutes. Continuing will be easier once you have a sense of accomplishment)
- Understand the consequences for managing your emotions with procrastination (Procrastination usually leads to feelings of guilt, so there's a cost to watching all that TikTok!)
