What time management is
Why it is important
Strategies and tips to be effective at managing your time
What Is Time Management?
Time management refers to the development of processes and tools that increase efficiency and productivity.
Why Do I Care?
As an RA, you will have to juggle several tasks and commitments at once. To get everything done AND done well (like Vinnie would say) you will need specific tools and strategies to manage your time.
Your overall mental health will be better.
Maintaining good working relationships with your supervisor, co-workers and residents is important.
What gets in the way of
Now that we know why we procrastinate, let's focus on strategies to use your time effectively such as:
Use a Planner
One way to help you plan is to use some form of a planner.
Have your planner with you at all times as you never know when something will come up!
There are many different types and ways to use planners (electronic, smartphone, pen & paper, etc).
Before you come to training, make sure to figure out what kind of planner works best for you!
Making To-Do Lists
During training and at the beginning of the quarter, write down all of your commitments. What are the things "you need to do" versus what "you want to do"? What are the things that you don't need to do or waste time doing?
In addition to knowing all of your school expectations, make sure you fully understand your supervisor's expectations. Ask questions if necessary!
If you add or drop an activity it is important to communicate with all parties involved (professor, supervisor and co-workers).
Don't forget to schedule time for things like sleep, healthy eating, working out, and all of those things that keep you sane!
To Wrap Up
Make sure to have a planner when you arrive back on campus August 18th.
Begin making to-do lists to get yourself in the habit of prioritizing.
Prioritize your tasks and if you need to, find which ones you need to stop doing.

Take a break from social media
Social Media is a great way to stay connected with friends and family. HOWEVER, it can be a time waster. When you need to manage your time, maybe check once a day.
Every Sunday night, sit down and look at your weekly schedule. In this schedule, block out all of your "to-do"s such as times for classes, meetings, dinners, programs and duty. By doing this, you are able to see exactly where you have time to study, go out, etc.
Create a daily list of tasks you would like to tackle.
Try to plan as much as you can. Like they say, "failing to plan, is planning to fail".
