Time management for college students

This is a basic time-management presentation that I put together for my students. I'm trying to teach myself PowerPoint, so I thought that this would be a good exercise for myself, as well as being useful (hopefully) for my students. Any suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Time management for college students

  1. 1. “But I’m too busy to watch a Time Management presentation!”
  2. 2. Here’s the good news: You are one step closer to reaching your goal(s)! Here’s the bad news: No one is going to force you to attend class and keep up with your assignments!
  3. 3.    Noun: The continuum of experience in which events pass from the future through the present to the past. Noun: A period of time considered as a resource under your control and sufficient to accomplish something.  Verb: Assign a time for an activity or event. Managing YOUR time in order to achieve YOUR goals is within YOUR reach!
  4. 4. Having goals—both long-term and short-term, create the motivation within yourself to diligently follow your set schedule.  Write your goals down and keep them somewhere where you’ll see them every day.  Understand that the effort/sacrifices that you’re making NOW will pay off down the road.
  5. 5. “If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.” Yogi Berra
  6. 6. Why are you in college? What do you hope to gain from this experience? Where do you see yourself in five years? In ten years? In twenty years?    Only YOU can answer these questions. Write these Long Term Goals down. Once you determine where you want to be, you’ll need to figure out the most efficient means of getting there. For most people, setting attainable Short Term Goals is the quickest way to achieve your ends—Your Long Term Goal.
  7. 7. “I approach everything step by step. I had always set short-term goals. As I look back, each one of the steps or successes led to the next one…If [your goal is to become a doctor]...and you’re getting Cs in biology then the first thing you have to do is get Bs in biology and then As. You have to perfect the first step and then move on to chemistry or physics...Take those small steps. Otherwise you’re opening yourself up to all kinds of frustration.” Michael Jordan
  8. 8.     Divide your short term academic goals into three categories: 1) Semester; 2) Weekly; and 3) Daily. Write down your semester goals and refer to them frequently, in order to remind yourself of what you’re attempting to accomplish. Over each weekend look at your various course syllabi, and determine exactly what you will need to accomplish over the coming week. Also, look at long-term assignments (such as papers, projects, etc.) and set milestones for yourself.
  9. 9. Use whichever method you prefer: paper, setting up a spreadsheet, using your cell phone calendar, etc.  Immediately block off class, sleep, work, exercise, etc., times. Obviously, you won’t be able to get any school work done during these hours.  If you have lengthy reading assignments try and break them up over the course of several days or the entire week.
  10. 10. Every morning review your daily tasks.  Take into account the fact that some days will be more or less busy than others. Obviously, on those days that you have labs, work, etc., you aren’t going to get as much studying/homework done.  Anticipate the geographic locations where you’ll be spending your day, and what materials you’ll need: i.e. snacks, drinks, work to do between classes, etc.  Don’t overlook/underuse small blocks of time. Ten minutes here and there can take chunks out of your weekly/daily To Do Lists.
  11. 11. Regardless of whether you are a commuter or live on campus, make sure that you have these items in your bag (besides the obvious—your books, notebooks, etc.):  Snacks, drinks, any necessary medications.  Phone charger.  Umbrella.  Writing utensils/highlighters.  Student ID.  Any work that can be attended to in case of unexpected free time, i.e. class cancellation, etc.
  12. 12. If you have a smart phone these apps might make your life a little easier (and most of them are free if you search around):  Dictionary/Thesaurus App  Weather App  Foreign Language Dictionary (if applicable)  University/College Emergency Text Alerts  Any other suggestions? 
