First entry – time management!

Have been with MBE for more than 2 weeks. The most important thing in the postgraduate that I feel now is the time management! I must make good use of my time, otherwise there will be probably no time to sleep. Still remember one of my colleagues said today that he went to bed after 3am, and two of my other colleagues said that they went to bed after 1pm these days. And we've actually got lectures from 9am to 6.30pm everyday in this week. Tough, but I feel that my colleagues didn't really complain about this, they are ambitious and enjoying the days.

Needless to say, I have been also busy from the beginning of the term. Besides the course works (we are currently doing 6 mini team projects), attending lectures, I have to sort out things like bank (always has a long queue), gas & electricity and so on so on.

Overall, the time management is important.

After all, the time management is important for business excellence!

    A good first entry Jingjing, the first of many I hope. You are right in saying that time management is important. On this programme it is perhaps the biggest single contributor to an enjoyable and successful study year. One word of caution. Do not be attempted to work that way that others do. For example, one year, one of my students used to go to bed at 7 pm after lectures, sleep for 4 hours and then get up, make a meal and then study until 3 or 4 pm, sleep for a while and then go to lectures at 9 am, always bright, cheerful and well groomed. It obviously worked well for her but it would have killed me. We each have our most effective times for study and doing other tasks and so in these few weeks take time to notice when you do certain tasks well and plan your week accordingly. Obviously, when working in teams you have to compromise at times but you can make your own decisions about your individual study. If you would like further discussion on time management matters, do give me a call.

  2. Thank you very much Paul! I still remember this example that you gave us in the induction week. Your are right, everyone has his/her own most effective times for working or studying. Managing the time, and at the same time, follow the time management.
