Time management is something every college student struggles with. Between classes, extra curricular activities and trying to find time to socialize with friends, we as a generation are spreading ourselves too thin. We feel this need to be involved in so many different activities at once or we miss out and most of the time we are not able to give them our all. Everyday I hear my friends talk about how they’re doing this and that and the classic “Oh that’ll look so good on your resume.” I am not denying I have not been like that, but I have found an interest to get involved with things I like rather than what I think will look best on my resume. I have experienced the trial and error moments, and through that I have discovered what works best for me. Whether it is planning my professional activities, academic career or social life, I have learned that with the help of a few time management skills I can get so much accomplished. I have discovered a few key things that help me with time management: a planner, a few minutes at the beginning of the week and a simple routine. I have found that by sitting down on Sunday night for a total of 10 minutes and just looking at what I have coming up for that week, makes my week so much easier. I am able to write down when I have assignments due, meetings and specific social events as well. It might be the type a personality in me, but it is such an easy thing to do and getting it out of the way. Time management is not hard to get the grasp of, but it does take some time. So here’s my advice – take that time, and the rest will fall into place.
