As a college student, many people are becoming a part of the work force for the first time in their lives. While few are lucky enough not to need a job while attending college, most find it a necessary part of life. Learning how to integrate work into your everyday life is really what life is all about, for most. Juggling tasks from arriving to solid planned parts of the day, to loose areas during the day that are open for choices. It is important to learn to do what we need to do and not what we want to do.
- Every time you commit to something new, make an effort to write it down. Whether it’s in Notes on your iPhone, on a slip of paper you keep in your pocket, or in your planner
- Once you know what you need to dedicate time to, figure out just how much time you need to dedicate to a priority and when you’re going to fulfill your commitment
- There’s only going to be so much time in a day and it’s something you should constantly be aware of.
“This aspect of time management may seem silly, but when it comes to adding another responsibility, whether it’s a club or even a goal to go to every office hour for the semester, it’s easy to forget about existing priorities.”
