Time Management Strategies for Success in AcademicsAlicia L. HendrixOhio Christian UniversityOCU1100Professor GriggsComputer Skills for College The purpose of researching time management was to find information written on the subject.
Search for tools to assist students in managing the demands on their time. Also, the steps that needed to be taken to succeed and reach their goals. Time management can benefit students by helping with planning and prioritizing activities. Gather resources for tasks that need to be completed, and schedule from urgent, must be done to those that can wait. Students breaking down their schedules into manageable tasks to complete their goals as suggested by (Jackson, V., 2009, pp. 434-436).
It has been shown that time management is a valuable tool which when practiced persistently could become habit. Students who manage their time are better able to cope with change and have better academic performance. Through academic success students become more motivated. Highly motivated students strive to accomplish more according to (Nadinloyi, K.; Hajloo, N.; Garamaleki, N.
and Sadeghi, H., 2013, pp. 134-138). There are paper tools that could help students to manage their time such as calendars, planners, to-do lists, diaries or the Kan Ban board.
And there are computerized tools some are reminder, note taking and Microsoft One Note applications. Some students could choose to use a combination of these tools. Managing time is an on-going process and whatever tools are chosen should be adaptable to the students needs stated by (Blandford, A.
and Green, T. 2001, pp.213-230). Another time management tool called the “Quiet Hour”, as explained by (Konig, C.; Kleinmann, M. and Hohmann, W.
, 2013, pp.137-145), is meant to be sixty minutes set aside in their scheduling. The hour is meant to be total mindset to the task at hand no phones, emails, visitors, etc. This could be helpful to those students who are unlikely to use other time management tools or are easily distracted. To attain their goals, students must find a strategy that works best for them. I order not to become overwhelmed, they must stay focused on the task to be completed, and must be efficient in managing their time.
Students should set realistic goals and manage priorities as concluded by (Chase, J.; Topp, R.; Smith, C.; Cohen, M.; et al.
, 2013, pp. 155-176). Finally, barriers to reaching goals would be procrastination and poor self-care, both which could be avoided. An effective strategy could be keeping a healthy balance between school and life.
Taking time to relax and having time to complete all tasks would help in reaching all goals this assessment by (Wolters, C.; Won, S. and Hussain M.
