Oh dear! You procrastinate quite often and should work on breaking the habit.
Improving your time management can give you a better perspective on forthcoming activities and priorities, more opportunities to be creative, less stress, more leisure time and greater achievement of goals and objectives.
Activity: Planning your time
In order to achieve your objectives it would be useful for you to complete the following two time plans:
- Weekly schedule: Try taking your academic timetable and fitting in other things you have to do around it, so you can get into a workable routine. For example, you might plan times to go to the library between lectures on a Monday and to do your washing after seminars on a Tuesday, and so on.
- Work schedule: Try taking your academic year diary and fill in assignment deadlines. Then add earlier deadlines to start researching, reading and writing up each piece of work, so that your final deadlines are just for submission.
Fix review dates in your diary in order to monitor your progress. Be prepared to change and update your plans, so that you achieve your goals.
