Three Pillars of Success

What is Time Management?

Balance Is Key

Hours in a week: 168
Sleep: 56
Usable Hrs: 112 hrs./week
1/3 Academic
1/3 Personal Commitments
(sports, job, clubs, spiritual, exercise,
grooming and laundry)
1/3 Social
(friends, family, networking, meals, free time)

37 ⅓ hrs for each third of your time.
Classes: 12-15 hrs.
37-12= 25 hrs./week to study.
25/4 (# of classes) =
6 hours of study time per week for each class.

Outcomes: Figure out what you want to achieve

Set Goals:
Long term
Short Term
Setting goals helps you resist short term pleasure in exchange for long term gain. It gives you the "why" to follow through.

Time Management

Time is really an emotion. A feeling.
A way of looking at life that provides an emotional state.

Time management involves taking control over the meaning you give to things
and what you want to achieve in your life.
Time Management therefore, is really Self Management.

You too can become resourceful. Find your talents and purpose in life.
Greatness come from focus and hard work not intelligence.
Expect nothing, earn everything.
Work hard to become the person you were meant to be.

We don't want to disappoint others, which is another form of pain.
Short term pleasure gives us immediate good feelings and a sense of relief.
