5 Steps to Conquering Time Management:

Here's a video to help you learn about these quick tips you can use to improve your time management skills. (Office 365 login required, English captioning and transcript available)

Identify time wasters and set goals. Time wasters are things like social media scrolling and binge watching TV shows. After you identify what you spend your time doing, set a goal to NOT engage in that activity for a select timeframe.

Plan Ahead. Create a daily/weekly to-do list with assignments and readings you need to complete that day/week. This will help hold you accountable to upcoming assignments and prevent you from missing due dates. Ex: This should be done separate from your weekly planners.

Small Tasks First. Placing small tasks at the top of your to-do list will help you feel more accomplished and give you the motivation needed to tackle those large time consuming projects. Ex: Writing an email to a professor is the perfect thing to put at the top of your list because it’s easy to accomplish!

Establish Routines. This is extremely important for our online students. Create a schedule and stick to it! Make sure you schedule a block of time for each class, where you can focus on just the assignments and reading for that class. EX: Molly will focus on Math class every M,W,F from 1-2:30pm.

Self-Care. Make sure you are taking enough breaks throughout your day to allow time for some self-care. Self-care is different for everyone so some may want to use their break times for catching up on social media while others may use that time for a run, whichever you prefer make sure you set aside time for yourself!
