TIME MANAGEMENT

TIME MANAGEMENT

Methodical study requires a time management scheme. You may make a a daily and monthly schedule of study and other activities. Time is something that cannot be renewed, recovered or borrowed. Time management is your ability to prioritize and execute your personal time. Do not spend time in procrastination. Start off straight away. As a student your main task is study. That is your priority. Therefore, when you make your time schedule, give sufficient time to it.

Write down a time-scheme in detail for class days and holidays and try to follow it. The mere fact that you have it written down urge you to carry it out. Having a plan of action for the whole day makes everything go systematically for you.
In the beginning you may find it difficult. Be flexible in making changes if required. But, by and by, you will find easier to follow it. You will find yourself with sufficient time for everything and live your student life in a relaxed manner.

For example you may have a time schedule like the following:
