Time Productivity Management

A Lesson on time management tips for students to become insanely productive.

Time Management tips for studentsWe waste so much of our lives. So, why not make sure every moment counts?

Poor time management, generally in the form of procrastination, adds a level of stress to your mind that doesn’t allow you to fully enjoy your down time.

You’ll come up with a million things to do instead of the greatest tasks at hand, even cleaning your closet! (OK, maybe not that.)

  1. Time is a valuable resource
  2. Schedules become habits
  3. Ability to be self-aware

Follow these 3 time management tips for students.  You are guaranteed to be insanely productive.

Time is a Valuable Resource

Until you realize that, Facebook and other mundane tasks will start to kill you.

A slow, zoned-out death.  Or, at the very least, keep you from getting into the school of your choice.

Everything seems more important than the ‘worst math homework ever’ or that looming test on the novel you haven’t read.

So much stress that it makes you hate seeing your book bag in the corner.

Just get it done. Follow this 10 Procrastination hacks to get things done.

Learn to prioritize with the realization that everything can’t be done in a day.

Yet, challenge yourself to go above and beyond expectations. You’ll be much more relaxed overall and have more time for fun stuff.

Schedule become habits

Don’t you hate it when you wake up by early on Saturday?

There’s no doubt that our body’s internal clock prefers to be in control.  But, taking care of yourself is also very important.

Healthy minds and bodies work and play better. Remember – it stakes time to change a habit.

Regular sleep times and planned study periods are beneficial. Routines, even if strayed from on weekends, nurture an environment of giving value to your time.

Ability to be self-aware

Another over-riding theme on this topic is the ability to be self-aware.

We all have limits.

Doing too much can be a huge barrier to successful time management.

Learn how and when to say ‘No’ to everything from excessive hang out sessions with friends to participating in too many activities.

Focus will allow you to reach your goals, including getting into your top choice of college or university.

Back to Facebook already?  No one said this balancing-act would be easy.

    i dont like reading self help/motivational books every now and then, but i just read one book during my bus travel which my friend was reading called “yes or no” written by Spencer Johnson. It really helped me to have a new angle to llonk into my decision making and time management. I am not here to promote this book, but this book helped me immensely.

    yes, social networking sites, sms & mobile calls really eat away our valuable time without lettings us realize it. I have observed ppl who are toppers stay away from these things at least for few hrs a day (mostly during their study time).
    To be frank, we really dont need to be in touch that frequently thru mobile or facebook. I prefer old fashioned approach towards study. No social networking sites, no mobile, no piling up too much study material (we tend to collect ebooks,materials from hundreds sources, and end up studying very little, grave crime! ). I also avoid too much indulgence into study-help websites! I find ppl connected to such sites 24×7 like some extraordinary secret gonna get revealed, forgetting to work on expanding their own ability. I know we cannot ignore internet, but for me studies comes first. I suppress my excitement and curiosity to see whats going on in other ppl’s lives. It works huge trust me!
