Learning Objective: Develop time-management skills for better organization and productivity
Students who’ve learned how to effectively manage time during high school are better prepared for the rigors of college study. Regardless of preparation, it takes time to adjust to college. Improve time management skills by setting and not deviating from goals. Even students who managed time well during high school often struggle when they begin college. Students are overwhelmed with large course loads, extracurricular activities, and other social activities. Although being in college can be overwhelming, it’s possible to complete everything that must be done in a timely and efficient manner. Developing time management and organizational skills is the key to working efficiently. The best way to better manage time is to develop daily schedules. Most organized people plan daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. This seminar will show you how to be self-motivated, leading to better organizational skills, productivity, and efficiency.
At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

a. Outline long-term goals and a plan to obtain them.
b. Obtain detailed plans for each day and know how to deal with delays.
c. Break large projects down into several simpler projects.
d. Cultivate a flexible schedule.
