Three Basic Time Management Strategies
- Planning is a huge time management strategy. Know when something is due and work back from the deadline, with a written plan breaking down each step.
- Schedule time to complete each steps of the plan.
- Become good at estimating how much time it takes to complete a task.
Three Basic Space Organizing Strategies
- Have a distraction free space to work. Think about the sensory things that support success. For example, have good lighting and comfortable seating.
- Organize information so you can find what you need when you need it.
- Have the right emotional support where you study and how you study. For example, you might do well with a study partner.
“What is the difference you feel inside when you are late for something vs. when you get there early.”
“Organizing is a process, not an event.”
“If you know it is difficult for you to wrap up at the end of an assignment, set the vibrating feature on your watch.”
“Time management is something you practice.”
