  • Imagine you have a bank that credits your checking account $1,440.00 EACH day; however, there is one catch—at the end of the day, any of the money you did not use will be wiped from your account forever. What would you do? You have that account. It’s called time. Any of the 1,440 minutes you do not use to your good each day is wiped from your account forever. Can anyone EVER relive a single day of his/her life? What do employers say about time? Time is _________. (money)
  • Next week there can’t be any crisis. My schedule is already full. –Henry Kissinger
  •  What you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. –Johan Wolfgang von Goethe
  • The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he be. -- C.S. Lewis
  • Time management skills are useful in your personal life as well as your professional life. How could managing your time improve the relationships that are important to you?
  • A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly, and the pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things--your family, your partner, your health, and your friends--anything that is so important to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is every thing else, the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your energy and time on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. PAY ATTENTION to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner dancing. Tell them you love them. Take time to get medical checkups. There will ALWAYS be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, and fix the car. Take care of the rocks first--the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
  • "The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carrythem as silently away." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Time management by Ajay U Pai

    1. 1.  Better three hours too soon, than one minute too late
    2. 2. You’veYou’ve got thegot the timetime!!
    3. 3. • Monitor your time. • Adopt tools for time management. • Develop “focused attention.” • Use planning to set you free.
    4. 4.  The key is to find out as much about the exam beforehand. Obviously knowing the questions would be nice but in the absence of these you can help yourself by checking:  1. How long is the exam?  2. How many questions do you have to answer?
    5. 5.  3. Are some questions compulsory?  4. What types of questions are there –short answer/ essays /problems etc?  5. What makes a good essay?
    6. 6.  1. Over prepare. That might seem like a poor way to study. But over many years of studying, I’ve found it to be sound advice. It’s much wiser to take an exam too seriously and find it easier than you expected than to wish–when it’s too late–that you’d studied more.
    7. 7.  Failure to set goals, priorities, or deadlines  Too much socializing  Failure to say no  Interruptions  Disorganization
    8. 8.  Some students find it useful to keep to an exam plan. For example:  1. Read the whole exam paper through from start to finish. During the reading time, mark the questions you know very lightly with a pencil.
    9. 9. 2.Decide which questions you are going to answer and in what order. For problem papers like Math and Accounts its best that you start from the beginning.
    10. 10.  3. You might feel better about starting with the question you feel most confident about.  4. Brainstorm what you know and plan how you will answer the question. Take care to sequence your ideas logically.
    11. 11.  5. Write your answer but remember not to write everything you know - always keep in  mind what the question is asking.  6. If you like to write your answers ‘in rough’ first(like in English) make a small thought box to have flow of ideas.
    12. 12.  7. Allow yourself time to read through each of your answers as you write them and again at the end of the exam.  8. If you don’t know an answer, don’t get frustrated move on to the next one you can come back to it later.  9. Wear a watch .
    13. 13.  . Elaborate. If you have a choice between making a point briefly and elaborating, choose to elaborate. A teacher reading a final exam is reading to “get to done”–to assign a mark and move on to the next exam in the stack. So you should show your knowledge and understanding in all appropriate ways.
    14. 14.  Don't let other people's panic affect you. Try and calm them if you can but do not take risks with your own well-being.  Have a good opening paragraph  Write legibly, if u don’t have a good handwriting at least draw lines.
    15. 15.  If you have used mnemonics to remember useful lists, scribble them down before you start and before you forget them.Eg-PODSC is Planning,Organising,Directing,Staffing,Cont rolling.(ANUJ USES THIS!!!!!!)
    16. 16.  Distinguish between different parts of the question ('outline', 'briefly discuss', 'describe') and allocate time accordingly  Even U don’t know a question write something random or at least something pertaining to the topic you might get 1 or 2 out of 5.It’s better than nothing.
    17. 17.  Read through the exam Reading through the whole exam you can › know what is expected of you › prioritize items on the test › pace yourself.
    18. 18.  Carefully read the instructions Make sure you are answering the question that is being asked! Often students know how to solve a problem, but they misread or misinterpret the question itself
    19. 19.  Check that you have correctly rewritten the problem If you use a scratch piece of paper make sure that you correctly rewrite the problem. Don't skip steps. Start from the beginning;
    20. 20.  Clearly write each step of the solution Be neat and don't rush writing numbers down. Keep checking your solution as you are working. Neatness makes it easier to recheck your work;
    21. 21.  Double check your math, especially your calculator entries Double check your calculator work immediately. The chances of hitting a wrong number are high, but the chances of hitting the same wrong number are not
    22. 22.  Don't Dilly Dally If you get stuck on a problem move on and come back to it later. When you are finished, recheck all your work.
    23. 23.  Avoid depressing post-mortems with fellow students. The exam is over, and there is nothing you can do about it now! There is no point in punishing yourself, especially if you have exams still to come.
    24. 24.  If you have made mistakes in the exam, try to learn from them and apply what you have learnt to the next exam. Think about how to avoid making similar mistakes in the future. For example, if you found that you ran out of time, analyse which area you spent too long on - did you spend too long writing out your essay plan, or deciding which question to do?
    25. 25.  Procrastination  Poor communication  Failure to delegate  Fatigue  Trying to do too much
    26. 26. “If you think you can do it, begin it! Begin and the mind grows heated. Begin, and the task is completed.”
    27. 27. Your Future is What You Make It TODAY! “The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.” --Abraham Lincoln
    28. 28.  Have advance preparation time  Have more focus and less stress.
    29. 29.  Work smarter not harder  Open up free time for family, friends, and fun  Enjoy peace of mind
    30. 30. “What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it… let it be something good.”
