Self Management Skills
Transcript of Self Management Skills
1. Understand what time really is!
A dictionary defines time as "the period at which things occur."
Put it simply, time is when stuff happens.
Thus, you can not manage time, but you can manage events that happen within this time, you can manage yourself doing tasks.
Time management is actually self management!
4. Set clear goals and time limits !
Create clear lists of things to be done within a day, within a week, within a year or even within 10 years! Think about urgent and important things. Sometimes urgent things are not important...
NB! Set realistic time frames!
3. Set regular time for planning
Find 10-15 minutes daily (in the morning or in the evening to plan your next day . Find 15-30 minutes at the weekend to plan your week, month, year...
10. Concentrate on doing a TASK
20 % of effort produce 80% of result
9. Sleep well and drink water!
Set a timer! IGNORE DISTRACTIONS!
Ignore the distracting factors! Facebook, VK, WhatsApp, Twitter your phone ringing - ignore these things when you are doing an important task. Stop checking them so often! Switch off your phone! Remove them from your browser (quick links / bookmarks). Replace your browser bookmarks with important work-related (studying-related) sites.
12. You can learn only through analysis and actions.
So after reading a piece of information:
1) make notes about the text you read,
2) make notes over notes,
3) retell what you have just read in your own words,
4) reorder the information in a new way to make connections clearer or just to see new connections - make a mind map.
The greater your brain's investment into the
information, the faster you will get it back from your memory when you need it.
11. Target to be early.
When you target to be on time, you’ll either be on time or late.
Most of the times you’ll be late. However, if you target to be early, you’ll most likely be on time. For appointments, strive to be early. For your deadlines, submit them earlier than required. For your exams prepare to take it a week earlier than it is scheduled.
Time Management Skills
for studying and working
2. Keep all plans in one place!
All your goals, to-do lists, plans should be kept in a single place: a notebook, a laptop or a smartphone.
5. Break your goals down into clear STEPS!
If you need to write a letter to your friend or a school composition, a book, if you need to do a test on maths, or to make a project for your boss - firs of all -
decide HOW you will do it
- step by step.
7. Review your progress
Make a pause - drink a coffee or a tea - have a rest to think what you have done - cross out the done thing .
To be effective in working and studying you need to be energetic. Your energy is generated in the morning - so leap out of bed with excitement, "rise and shine", smile widely, wash your face with cool fresh water, dance, have positive thoughts on your mind every morning!
6. Target to be early!
When you target to be on time, you’ll either be on time or late. Most of the times you’ll be late. For appointments, strive to be early. For your deadlines, submit them earlier than required. For exams imagine the date of an exam a week earlier than it really is.
Thus you will NEVER BE STRESSED!
Feeling anxiety, stress, threat prevents you from learning and memorizing, because these negative emotions (anxiety, stress, threat) or thoughts ("What if I fail?" , "What will my parents say?" or "I am sure I am going to fail this test") distract your attention and focus from the task.
13. Stay optimistic, curious
to be a success!
Be always ready to learn from your mistakes. If your failure makes you depressed you stop making progress.
Most people take new information best in the morning hours and the best time to consolidate it in your memory is in the afternoon.
14. Follow your biological rhythm!
Every person has personal biological rhythm for learning, so there are hours when one memorizes better.
One of the most important habits to dramatically improve your productivity is to drink more water. You already know you should drink 2 litres of water per day. This is a simple productivity hack. Drink a glass of water when you take your vitamins, or when you first wake up.
