Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Governing values are the most important values that define what you are and want to become. The order that you put your governing values set your priorities in life. It is important to notice that a simple change in the order of two values may result in two different individuals. Long-term goals are the goals that will allow you to fully achieve and live your governing values. You must set long-term goals that will help you to become the kind of person that you described in your governing values. Short-term goals are the goals that you should keep you focus on right now, and it must be a step toward your long-term goals, or in other words, towards the kind of person you want to be. The daily task list is the items that you must accomplish every day to achieve your unique success. It is important to notice that your daily task list is what will keep you productive and focused on the long shot. By having a meaningful daily task you will never catch yourself not knowing what you should do next
  2. Self-awareness and long-term goals need to be considered together. You need to determine how committed you are to the goals you have set for yourself. If you are not committed, you will be less likely to plan the time needed daily to achieve a goal. You need to consider the demands of the task you are faced with completing and make sure you are planning accordingly. For instance, have you scheduled enough time at your alert time of the day to read your chapter in history or to complete your math homework when the Math Clinic is open? Do you need materials from the library to complete your paper? Students who say, “I can do this later,” often lack an awareness of how much time there is in each day or how far away deadlines may be and what else needs to be done at the same time. In addition, part of time management is managing your environment to avoid unwanted disruptions so that you can concentrate on the work at hand and complete it in an efficient time frame to maximize the learning moment, which will be discussed more at length in the “Concentration” section of this chapter. Finally, and maybe most importantly, some students fail to evaluate how they are doing on individual assignments or in their courses in general to determine if they need to be spending more time on academic endeavors.
  3. use personal experiences “How many have you have ever been playing on your phone and then suddenly four hours have gone by?” No matter what is wasting your time, set a goal to not engage in that behavior during dedicated study time. Instead, use those activities as a reward for staying focused and accomplishing the tasks you set out to complete.
  4. Documenting big events, course deadlines, and other important dates on a monthly calendar that you can post for easy and frequent review can help you see if you have conflicting events and deadlines.
  5. Priorities: Urgent/important vs. “it can wait” – don’t sacrifice sleep, food, or study time
  6. Identify “time-wasters” -use personal experiences “How many have you have ever been playing on your phone and then suddenly four hours have gone by?”   Solutions: Schedule time for you to relax and spend time on your time waster Utilizing outlook and a planner Actually write down times to start working on future assignments so everything isn’t done last minute
