Time Managment Review

Learning how to become more effective in your study habits, is always an topic students in particular can benefit from. Finding a method is helpful, but it always comes down to the individuals need or desire to make this a habit.

I think that broadening your horizon and finding more helpful ideas, can benefit any person willing to change. Particularly when the source provides key elements that most students struggle with.

Alternatives to do

Effective time management has alternatives that are not set in "to do lists". In this article it gives examples on ideas that can overcome procrastination. I found it helpful in introducing the idea that to be most effective with my study skills I need to find a way to be relaxed and comfortable with my choices.

I can relate to not being able to write a to-do list and follow through. I found the information about slowing down and taking my time, extremely helpful. It is not new information, but it is helpful to remind yourself sometimes. Faster isn't always better.

Time Management for Right Brained People

Lots of good stuff in this one. I especially like the concept of "Do Less". I never thought effective time management would include doing less, but the idea of purging my schedule with a "Not to do" list is great. I'm guilty of trying to add responsible stuff to do in an already packed routine instead of getting rid of "Worthless Activities".

Aimed at the person that I am
Navarre Smith, College Freshman

I really enjoyed this site because it is aimed at the type of person I am. I am not the type of person to make a "to-do" list or to live life on a schedule. Though it might help me to be that way, that is not me, and I can not change that. I tend to procrastinate, and leave things til the last possible minute to get it done. Though that is who I am, this site gave me some great ideas on how to be successful, and manage my life being exactly who I am. It talks about how personal style has a lot to do with life management. If your not the type of person to make a to-do list that you can check off as things get done, that forcing yourself to do so may be counter productive. It says that "The trick is to discover what suits you" as well as try not to do everything based on time. That managing time is not possible, that we need to manage our lives. Whether or not we get done what we need to, time will continue, days will go by, life times will come to an end. It is much more important to meet our goals and do what we need to, than it is to manage time itself. You can set as much time aside to get done what you need to, but if you aren\'t managing yourself and making sure it gets done in that time, the amount of time is worthless.

This article also has within it a list of good things to take into account when trying to be more successful when you are the type of person I am. It states that you should "know your values" basically saying that you shouldn't think of your life in a conglomeration of minutes, hours, and days, but think of it as your life as a whole. Think about what life means to you and what you with to accomplish with that life. I really liked this idea because I'm consistently doing this and that distracts from what I need to accomplish. I often take precious time out of my schedule to help others though I get no personal gain from it. I know helping others is good, and doing it for nothing is admirable, but when it keeps me from accomplishing what I need to it, in fact, hurts me.

Another thing they said that really stuck out to me is that you should "Focus on Outcomes". This part illustrates that doing something like playing video games is fine as long as you aren't doing it in lieu of something that needs to get done. What is important is meeting your goals and being successful. If you are doing all that then taking some time to play some video games or watch some netflix isn't horrible and you should not feel guilty about it. As long as the outcomes of your life are not being negatively affected by it, then it can be a good thing.

I could sit here and list out everything that they went over, but that wouldn't be time effficient. In conclusion I enjoyed this link because it appealed to me in many levels. It showed me that the way I am is not a bad thing; it is just the way I am and I should accept that, not try and run from it or be something I'm not. With that being said it gave me several ways I can be myself yet also manage my life in a more effective way to be successful.

Awesome Way To Manage Time!

This site is amazing if you struggle sticking with a to-do list! It's okay to be someone who doesn't like checking things off lists because there are many other ways to manage your time effectively.

You can do other things like make mind maps, and write your tasks out individually. Most importantly do things that matter and not things that are just going to waste your time. This site definitely made me feel better about how I am going to manage my time in the future. I love the idea of writing down your goals and using that as motivation to get things done to create a better you in the future. Also, getting rid of all time distractions likes watches and clocks, so you aren't constantly looking at the time. I found that one very helpful. I would recommend this site to any of my friends who have trouble managing time because it puts it into a different perspective, and gives you different ways to help manage your time effectively.

I like this one because it explains that if you can set up time, that is wasted and put it towards something that you like to do or with friends and family, it will help you. Also it talks about how to gain better study habits and that if your achiving your goals that you can make more free time for the things you want to do.

To do lists not for everyone
Shannan Hoxsie, College Freshman

This article explains how there are many efficient ways to categorize your priorities no matter what your personality type is. It goes on to state that while many people are successful with conventional to-do lists, this tactic simply doesn't fit everyone's needs or help to accomplish their time management goals.

The article gives a different perspective on how all types of personalities can find time management skills that fit their personalities and needs. One of the points made that stood out to me was the suggestion to slow down in life. Whether it be running errands or on your way to school or work, people generally are in a hurry. I know I personally make fewer mistakes when I'm calm and give myself plenty of time to complete my tasks for the day. Another interesting detail discussed in the article was to stop stressing about time. Many people myself included, become overwhelmed and stressed out just by thinking of all of the homework, projects, and everything else that needs to be done. We become obsessed by the clock and always checking our watches and counting down the hours. By letting go of this anxiety and constant worry, you can start to change your habits and not check the time so frequently. Overall, this article provided clear, easy to read information with helpful tips and a unique perspective to personal time management. The article and website were very effective in providing knowledge and helped to shed light on learning strategies related to my studying and learning skills course.
