Time Management For Students
The time management skills and disciplines that you develop as a student can help you for the rest of your life.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
Here are some tips to help you develop good time management A. Create good study habits1. Study at the same time each day so that it becomes a habit.
2. Plan for weekly reviews.
3. Set aside blocks of study time (about 45 minutes each).
4. Keep your study area just for studying and get rid of distractions.
5. Write down assignments in every class including the DUE DATE and then check off items as you complete them.
6. Take advantage of open “time windows.”
Use the time you spend waiting, walking, riding, etc. to review what you’ve learned.
Just before class, quickly review your notes or readings relating to that class.
B. Plan Properly for Peak Performance
1. Set up a school-year calendar to get a big picture of your semester–don’t include too much detail at this point.
2. Schedule your fixed commitments. Block out time for papers, projects, readings, meetings, scheduled exams, holidays, breaks, presentations, etc.
Allot time for planned recreation, sports, club activities, etc.
Enter important dates for your social and family life.
Leave free time for yourself so you have flexibility.
3. Make a Weekly Schedule. Once a week block out time on a more detailed level for important commitments and deadlines you need to meet. Schedule meetings with yourself to work on back-burner items.
4. Make a Daily To-Do List. At the end of each day organize and schedule your next day. Include routines, errands, and study time.
C. Follow your plan
1. Don’t let peer pressure or the quest for short-term gratification dictate what you consider important.
2. Focus on the goals you’ve set for yourself and follow up on your true top priorities.
3. Align your priorities with your long-term values and goals.
D. Set priorities: There’s always more to do than you have time
1. Be mindful that the actions you take today will plant the seeds for your long-term success or failure.
2. Think of the possible actions you can take today that will contribute to your success.
a. Go over each action you’ve thought of and ask yourself, “What positive things might happen if I make this a top priority?”
b. Ask yourself, “What negative things might happen if I don’t make it a top priority?”
c. Write down the answers you’ve come up with and sort things out by asking yourself three more questions.Balance priorities
1. How good or bad are the best and the worst things that might happen?
2. What are the probabilities of the best and the worst thing happening?
3. How much time and energy would I have to invest?
E. Overcome procrastination
Without a date, you’ll procrastinate. Whenever you get an assignment, set a goal for when you’re going to start it so you can finish without a last minute panic.
1. Once you’re given a due date on an assignment, count backwards from the due date to establish a start date. Take into account time you’ll be spending on other items like social events, sports, etc. Refer to your school calendar where you’ve blocked out time you’ve committed to other things.
2. Keep stress to a minimum. Start early to avoid a frantic finish.Time management - clock
3. If you usually wait until the last minute to study or work on an assignment, instead of making your goal to finish on time, make your goal to finish early.
4. Remember the riddle, “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer: “A bite at a time.”
If it’s a big assignment, break it into small steps.
F. Look Back From the Futuretime
Things that appear critically important today might seem relatively unimportant when you view them from a future perspective. Also, things that appear to be relatively unimportant today might be very important when you view them from a future perspective.School represents a time in your life that may have a major impact on how the rest of your life turns out. Your success tomorrow depends on what actions you take today. Keep that in perspective so that the daily decisions you make are wise ones. credit to Peter “The Time Man” Turla, TimeMan.com

Having trouble getting serious about studying for a test? Let us give you some ideas that will get you in the right mindset to get prepped for your final exams, or just for your average, everyday quiz.1. Study Alone
Unless you've got a couple of friends who are super-serious about getting down to business, stay away from group study sessions because they tend to get off-topic pretty quickly. Save the social time till after you've handed in your test.2. Create Your Perfect Study AreaThe place where you study should be quiet, comfortable and free from distractions. Go to your room, close the door and kill as many distractions as possible - like music, television, and even the internet and your phone. If you don't have your own room that you can sneak away to, consider studying at the library instead.4. Turn Your Notes into Flash CardsNow that you've got all your notes in front of you, open up a pack of index cards. As you read through the important facts, rewrite them in Q&A form on the cards. For instance: to study historical facts, write the historical fact on one side of the card and the key details on the other side. To study geometry formulas, right the name of the formula on one side and the formula itself on the other side.5. Snack Healthy While You StudyIf you want to stay sharp while you study, stay away from junk food. Instead, snack on studying-friendly foods like dark leafy greens, whole grains, peanut butter, milk and seafood. Feeling sluggish? Caffeine or energy drinks won't help you in the long run. Get your energy boost instead by eating a banana or an apple.3. Get it All OutYour study materials, that is. Before you dig in, make sure you have all your books, notes, study guides and writing utensils in front of you. Don't give yourself another excuse to get up and rummage around.6. Narrow it DownIf you try to study every single thing your teacher's ever said, you'll go crazy. Instead, focus on the most important topics. If you're not sure what those are, read the study guide (if there is one), or ask your classmates. Once you've nailed down the important stuff, if there's still time left before the test, you can move onto the finer details.7. Take a BreakYour brain can only take so much hard work at one time. For every hour that you study, take about 15 minutes to do something mindless, like taking a walk, listening to music or playing a computer game. (You can even take a 15-minute nap, if you're confident you can wake yourself up at the end of it.) It'll keep your stress level down and give your brain a chance to let all that information sink in.8. Put Yourself to the TestOnce you've got your set of flash cards, test yourself with them. If you don't trust yourself not to cheat, give the cards to your parents and have them test you. Don't stop till you've made it through the whole stack without any mistakes. And be sure to bring your flash cards to school with you on the day of the test: you'll be amazed at how much more you can retain if you run through the cards right before your teacher hands out the test packet.9. Get Some SleepYou might be tempted to pull an all-nighter, but if you do, you'll only be hurting your chances of getting an A. Get a full 8 hours of sleep so your brain is in good shape on test day. 10. Study All Semester LongIt's tempting to hold off on studying till the last minute, especially if you tell yourself that anything you try to memorize earlier on won't really stay in your brain. That's not true. Take some time throughout the semester to review all of your notes and re-read important passages in your text book. It might seem tedious, but it'll really keep all those facts in your brain on test day.

TIPS N ADVICE
Here are some quick tips that will help you get your homework done :1. Pick a good time to do homework.
Try to do your homework at the same time everyday--right after school, just before dinner, or right after dinner. Try not to leave homework until just before you have to go to bed.
2. Find a place that makes studying easy.
Collect up all the books and supplies you’ll need (and your snack) before you begin to work. Do your homework in the same place every day.
3. Spend more time on hard homework than easy homework.
If you know what’s easy and what's hard, do the hard work first. Take a short break if you are having trouble keeping your mind on an assignment.
4. If homework gets too hard, ask for help.
If your parents are busy and you have an older brother or sister, ask them for help, or get your parents to ask them. Only ask for help if you really need it.
5. Remember to make time for long-term projects.
Think about using a weekend morning or afternoon for working on big projects, especially if the project involves getting together with classmates. If you need special stuff for a project, make sure to tell your parents to get it for you well in advance.
