Time Management for New College Students
by Julie Page

Time flies, but YOU are the pilot!
You have choices!
- What do you need/want to do? How will the task help you? {Now & future?}
- When do you need/want to complete it by?
- How well do you want to complete the task?
{How much effort can/will you put into the activity?}

Urgent Not Urgent

is not a day of the week.
Your future is created by what you do TODAY,
not someday
Time is limited & valuable
Not Important Important
Why now?
High School VS. College
In high school . . .
* Strict attendance policies
* Parents/teachers/guidance counselors may have been highly involved in your academics

Now in college . . .
* Freedom
* Independence
* More responsibility

Pinterest Facebook Netflix
Music Friends Over-sleeping
Twitter Instagram Video Games
*Allow yourself time to relax to stay
fresh and rejuvenated - use these as rewards!
*Write these activities into the free time
in your schedule, but keep a time limit
* Multi-task when you can
Non-negotiable and
must be done soon.
Not doing the task(s) could have
a negative impact in some way

Non-negotiable and
must be done, but there is some flexibility on when task(s) need to be completed
Tasks that need to be done soon , but they don't have a pressing need. Not doing the task(s) will likely not have a negative impact
Tasks that do not need to be done right now, and do not offer any significant benefits for doing them {Time Wasters}
Get Organized: Monthly Schedules
Get Organized: Weekly Schedules
Get Organized: Daily Schedules
*Free printable calenders available in Microsoft Office Templates

*Free online calender:

All have daily/weekly/monthly
calender options
How do you make time for everything?
* Define your goals
* Prioritize/create schedules
* Deal with distractions
* Reward yourself

Setting Goals
1. Set daily/weekly/monthly goals
2. Create an action plan
3. Get to work!
4. Try your best to stick to the plan!
5. Reach goal{s} & reward yourself!
It's easy to procrastinate, but . . .
* Stay motivated! The sooner it's done, the sooner you can
cross it off your To-Do List
* Think of the end results and benefits you'll achieve
* Set up a reward system so there is something to look forward to
* Be proud of yourself for everything you accomplish

Doing something is better than doing nothing.
Even if you're overwhelmed, pick any project and get going!
It will get easier as you get working on it!

Every new day you
receive $1,440. You can't save it &
if you don't use it you lose it.

Imagine this . . .
Will great this year
and make every minute count?

* Meet short-term
and long-term goals
* Improve your organizational skills
*Reduce unnecessary stress
* Gain a sense of control and balance in your life
* Improve your efficiency to save time in the long run
When the unexpected happens . . .
* Your parents or friends surprise you for a visit
* Your professors moves up/extends a deadline
* You get invited to a campus activity
* You get a new part-time job
* You catch a cold & don't feel well for 3 days
* Your class is canceled, giving you more free time
You may need to re-assess your schedule, goals, and/or plans every day, and that is okay - Life happens. Be flexible and create a new plan . . . make an appointment with the CAS Office any time you need help
