Step 2:
Obstacles Will Appear
These time management skills will help you to prepare for tests,
meet deadlines,
& attend other activities or events,
without being stressed
Planning & Scheduling
Estimate how much time you think your tasks & obligations will take.
Then, DOUBLE the time for your planner.
Almost everything takes more time than expected.
Set time limits for each task.
Otherwise, you will run out of time before you get anything finished.
Use a Planner
Document the semester's academic, athletic, & activity schedules.
Include all assignments, assessments, meetings, & practice times.
Develop a consistent weekly schedule.
Include homework, studying, eating, exercising, family time, & social time.
