Time management

  1. 1. Time Management
  2. 2. Time management is as emotional as it is logical.
  3. 3. …We procrastinate because we do things that we WANT to do (i.e. things that make us feel good). We don’t need to get better at prioritizing. Our brain is already programmed to prioritize extremely well.
  4. 4. Time management at a school like MICDS means conditioning yourself to do what you need to do or should do over what you want to do. So how do you best get THESE types of things done?
  5. 5. Efficiency is one-dimensional thinking. It’s important, but that’s not all there is to time management.
  6. 6. Prioritizing (the Stephen Covey method) is two- dimensional thinking. It’s important, but that is also not all there is to time management.
  7. 7. The problem is that we are still lacking that thing that makes us WANT to do the task, the thing that lets us know how much of a priority the task truly is.
  8. 8. Identify the SIGNIFICANCE. Multiply your time by giving yourself the permission to spend time on things today that will give you more time tomorrow. Being clear on the SIGNIFICANCE of each task will also provide motivation.
  9. 9. What are the things I am working on right now that will build long-term skills and/or save me time tonight or tomorrow?
  10. 10. I’m giving you these last ten minutes of class to work on _____ which is due on Friday.
  11. 11. Socializing with friends IS IMPORTANT, but do I need to do this now? Will there be time later to take a break?
  12. 12. Don’t work during break time, but do work during wait time. • At the doctor’s office • Waiting for a plane • In the car • Read written text if it doesn’t bother you to read while the car is moving • Or invest in a comfortable headset and listen to audio book version to and from school. • When you are early to school or waiting to be picked up
  13. 13. Set Goals 1. Specific 2. Realistic 3. Time-based 4. Break larger assignments into smaller chunks
  14. 14. Set Goals When planning your time, it should be in 30 minute blocks. The working brain can not handle any more information longer that that time frame. • 10 min – generate ideas and quotes • 10 min – write thesis statement • 10 min - outline English • 10 min - Math Science Spanish History
  15. 15. Set Goals Therefore, planning should be done with an active break in between blocks. Breaks should be planned and part of the time management. • hwksubject BREAK • hwksubject BREAK • hwksubject BREAK • hwksubject BREAK • hwksubject

  18. 18. JUST START
  19. 19. Do not strive for perfection of work, instead focus on completing project steps. When you are complete with all tasks, you will know how much time you have left and what revisions need priority.
  20. 20. how an assignment is usually worked on: Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday assignment given discover that one or two students have already been working on the project …feel kind of guilty look at instructions start and finish project deadline for project find out you forgot to include something brilliant epiphany about something you could have added or revised in the project get assignment back from teacher – underwhelming feedback and grade
  21. 21. JUST START
  22. 22. Getting started on a long-term assignment on the first day it’s assigned 1) gets the ball rolling (it is neurologically harder to begin a project than it is to continue it) and 2) reveals the parts of the assignment that you didn’t know existed or didn’t realize would take so much time. Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday assignment given work on it for 20 minutes that night work for 10-15 minutes work for 10-15 minutes brilliant epiphany about what to add work for 10-15 minutes brilliant epiphany about what to revise meet with teacher about questions that have come up when you usually start a project finishing touches deadline for project
  23. 23. Don’t forget, time management is as emotional as it is logical. Practice getting clear on WHY you should do the things you do.
