The first step in time management is to find out how you actually use your time. This Time Management exercise will help you discover exactly that.
Here’s how the Time Management exercise works. You will track your time for four days using this Microsoft Word template. You will plan each day in advance based on how you think it will turn out. Then you will track what actually happens in your calendar.
Using your notes, itemize your calendar with the events from the four-day period that you were tracking. Please make sure to appropriately label each item. Save this calendar as LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part1.doc. Part II: Review and Reflection
Refer to the calendar that you completed in Part I. If you have not yet completed this exercise, please do so before continuing with the questions below.
What did you learn about how you actually use time compared to how you planned to use your time? Did you find places where you tend to ineffectively or inefficiently use your time? Did you find some pockets of time that you could use for high priority tasks? What can you do to improve the way you manage your daily tasks? How do you plan to manage your schoolwork along with your other key priorities? After a few days, review the calendar and the goals you developed in Part I of this assignment and respond to the following questions:
Were your daily goals realistic considering the amount of time you gave yourself to fulfill them? Explain your response. If you have revised your initial goals after your review, explain why you think this revision is necessary and how your plans have changed as a result. If you have not revised your goals, consider what factors you may have failed to identify in your initial goal setting activity. Summarize your review in a one- to two-page paper in MS Word format and save it as LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part2.doc.
3.In addition to time, another resource that demands good management in order to succeed is money. How can you best manage your finances in tough economic times? What do you need to do financially to succeed in school? The bottom line is to be wise when borrowing money. This module will help you develop skills to manage your time and money.
