Tips and Tricks

  • Use the time management technique that works best for you. Some students prefer a desk or pocket day planner, while others prefer online tools and apps for mobile phones and tablets.
  • Don't overestimate your stamina and what you can realistically accomplish within a given period of time. It will lead to frustration and you'll end up abandoning any effort to manage your time.
  • Make sure you include plenty of time for rest, relaxation and having fun.
  • Life will sometimes go in unexpected directions. Be prepared to adjust your time planning to account for illness, family emergencies, financial setbacks, and changing priorities.
