For this week’s assignment, I want you to evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to effectively managing your time.
To start this assignment, take a few moments and reflect on what a typical day or week for you is like. How do you manage your time to be sure that you get through everything you need to accomplish?
Here are a few example questions to guide you:
How many hours a week do I currently spend on class or homework?
How many hours do I spend working, volunteering, or on extracurricular activities?
How long is my daily commute?
How much sleep do I get a night? Do I prioritize making sure that I get enough sleep?
How many days before an assignment is due do I start working on it? Do I utilize the syllabus to plan ahead?
After you answer these questions, reflect on some of the following:
What negative activities am I participating in that are taking time away from being more productive?
If I had to pick one thing to eliminate, what would it be?
What should I prioritize more?
Your assignment should be at least one page in length. The assignment is due on Sunday before midnight.
