EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT  

  

We wonder how some students can fit so many activities into their schedules, while others barely have time to attend classes? Are they smarter? No, they are just managing their time better. Time management is self management. Here we will discuss some pointers on how to manage our time, but it is important to realize that only you know your peak work hours, your attention span, and your eating and sleeping needs.  

That means you are the only person who can decide the best organized schedule for yourself and books and theories can just act as guidelines. Time management is a highly personalized skill, and whatever method works for you is the right one.

Three steps to effective time management are:
1. Organizing. 
 

The more organized you are, the more effectively you will be able to use the 24 hours in each day. Don¶t think about which tasks are most important at this point. Just write them all down. Once you get in the habit of doing this, you might want to organize yourself for a few days in advance to help plan longer projects.

2. Prioritizing.   

 

The next step is to prioritize the items on your list. Assign an ³A´ to those things you ³HAVE TO DO´; DO´; Assign ³B´ to the tasks you ³SHOULD DO´; DO´; And ³C´ to those items that can be ´DEFFERED´ until the next day. Keep in mind due dates for projects and if they are for a class. You might consider how much of the final grade that particular project is worth (5% or 50%).  

This can help you decide how high a priority should be assigned to the project. Try not to leave projects for the last minute ± that¶s the least effective way of getting things done.

3. 

Scheduling. 

 



Now that you have your prioritized list of everything you need and want to do, you should look at your schedule to fit your projects around the ³givens´ (class, work, sleep, etc.) in your day. Your schedule should be flexible. Leave room for breaks, socializing and those little things that tend to pop up. Allow for the unexpected! Don¶t try to plan out every minute of your day.   

As you are scheduling, keep your personal needs and habits in mind. For example, don¶t schedule study time in the morning if you like to sleep in late. Be realistic and make a schedule which you can be sure to stick to.

Important Tips
1. Learn to say ³NO´. 

Remember there is not enough time each day to do everything for everybody. In order to keep from burning out, you need to take time for yourself and learn to say ³no´ to some of the requests for your time. Only you can realistically look at your commitments to see if you have the time to commit to other tasks.  

Say ³no´ when you don¶t want to, can¶t, or don¶t have the time. Openness and honesty is the key to saying ³no´. Your friends and co-workers will comost likely understand your situation if you level with them. One final tip: as you go through the day, ask yourself, ³What is the best use of my time right now?´

WHAT IS ANGER? 
  

You have lots of emotions. At different times, you may be happy, sad, or jealous. Anger is just another way we feel. It's perfectly OK to be angry at times ² in fact, it's important to get angry sometimes. But anger must be released in the right way. Otherwise you'll be like a pot of boiling water with the lid left on. If the steam doesn't escape, the water will finally boil over and blow its top!

Consequences include:
1. 2. 3.

Exclusion from day services Breakdown of residential placement Involvement with the criminal justice system

Strategies for coping with anger 

Take control of your anger before it takes control of you.
Breathing deeply and/or physically exerting your body will help to lessen the adrenaline rush. Distraction, stop and think, walk away, use humour You could also try screaming and shouting abuse at an empty chair. Count from one to ten and from ten to one while your anger goes out of control.  

  

Fantasy:
Engaging in daydreams about how things should be, rather than doing anything about how things are. 

Distraction:
A means of consciously deciding to put off thinking or feeling distressing thoughts or feelings by temporarily focusing your attention towards something less threatening.

Ask yourself if whatever made you angry is important? In 50% cases the situation on which you are angry has no importance in your life .
