managing time–1st blog
During this session, I have got some really valuable information about managing time. First, I got help to identify my goals. I have known I should arrange my time according to what I want in Warwick, but I failed to set and rank my goals. I have finished the goal identification part.
I get to used to arrange my time on a daily basis, e.g. read pp 30-40 between 14.00--15.00. It is tiring because I have to do it everyday. But it really helps me do things in a more efficient way. One problem is that I find it hard to define the time period of doing something. Sometimes I can not finish the task due to the unexpected workload. Sometimes I can easily complete a task in a shorter time since it is not as hard as I expected. Given the information in the session, I should probably refer to SMART: make an achievable and realistic schedule. I guess it is not that easy because it is hard to measure whether or not it is achievable.
Another thing is that I should find the most efficient time for me. I did not realise it before the session. Thanks for the hint.
Thank you for sharing the areas you found useful during the workshop and what you have already started to put into place.
It sounds like you have already started to think about how you can best support activities in the time you allocate to them. You may also wish to consider logging how you spend your time overall or for a specific activity to help you gauge time that something actually takes to keep achievable and realistic within the time.
