3. Revisit and revise your plan
Where to start?

goals
 Set both long-term goals and
short-term ones to support them
 Set a deadline

 Goals change, but prioritize your
goal!
Go for
the
goal!
1. Set Goals!
2. Make a Schedule
Set Up Your Semester Calendar
 Look at the syllabus for the class schedule.
 Begin with blocking all class and lab times.
 Block all other set time obligations:
 Work, meetings, daily to dos and so on…
 Highlight all exams and project due dates.
 Identify routine homework days.
 Work backwards from exams and papers and map out
study/writing time.
 Don’t forget to take a break once in a while.
Make a Schedule (continued)
Set Up Your Weekly Plan
Spend 30 minutes or so mapping out the week.
Ask yourself questions about the week like:
– Goals expected to accomplish?
– How to accomplish?
– Priority?
– Time required to achieve?
– When to do?
– Flexibility to expect unexpected?
Where
does the
time go?
“Work smarter,
not harder.”
- Alan Lakein
3. Revisit and Revise Your Plan
Are you making progress?
 Are you paying attention to your schedule?
 Which tasks were you able to do? What didn’t get done?
 Was your energy level appropriate? & Your stress level?
 Changes needed in weekly schedule?
 What are persistent time wasters?
 Could better communication have helped you stick to your
plan?
 Was procrastination an issue?
Procrastination:
“Never do today what you can put off „till tomorrow!”
Forms of procrastination:
 Ignoring the task
 Overestimating task
 Accepting poor performance
 Involving in not so important things
 Repeated “minor” delays won’t hurt you
 Illusion of hard job
 All focus on one task only
 Becoming paralyzed when have to make choices
How to Overcome Procrastination !!
 Win the mental battle by being on time
 Set and keep deadlines
 Organize, Schedule & Plan
 Divide a big job into smaller ones
 Make a game of your work
 Reward yourself when you’re done
 Remember your of priorities and deadlines
 Learn to say “no” to time wasters
Tackle Time Wasters
• Recognize when you are wasting time
• Decide what you need to do
• Learn how to say “NO” when you don‟t have time
• Wasting time means „lack of self-discipline‟
• Ask yourself, “Do I really need to do this or not?”
• Avoid the temptation to socialize when you‟ve
scheduled work
• However, Socializing is also important
Time Management Techniques
1. The Set Time Method
Block out a specific time to accomplish a task.
Examples:
Monday 1:00—2:00 Work physics problems
Saturday 9:00—11:30 Go to the gym
2. The Swiss Cheese Approach
Whenever you find yourself with some free time, do a
small part of a larger task
Examples:
Arrive to class 10 minutes early and brainstorm
research ideas while waiting for your friend to
arrive for lunch, review notes from today‟s
History lecture.
