“The Bad News is, Time Flies. The Good News is, You’re the Pilot” – Michael Altahuler
As a teenager, do you always feel like you don’t have enough time, juggling between school, homework, CCAs and other stuffs going on after school?
Do you feel like you haven’t done much throughout the day and end up rushing to do your homework at 10pm? Do you always think, “There’s not enough time”. Yet, you find yourself spending more than necessary on social media and games?
Have you ever told yourself during exam that “I will buck up and prepare better next time instead of playing that round of game”? And never really got around to doing that?
As someone who has youth, energy and all the time in the world now, it probably doesn’t feel too much of an importance to properly manage your time now.
Managing Your Time Properly is a Skill.
How a successful person differentiates from one who is not, is by the way he manages and prioritises his hours and days.
A productive and successful person will know what to do with his/her time first.
Do the hard task first and finish it so that he/she can spend the rest of the day more relaxed.
If you can manage your it well, you can juggle school and even a part-time job, in between school projects and outing with friends too.
How can you identify whether you are spending your daily and weekly activities in a productive manner?
We have crafted a time management workbook with strategies on how to make better use of your hours. We also discuss how we can maximise the amount of time you spend in each activities. You will also know how to switch to the next activities with least resistance.
With this workbook, you’ll work on identifying where you lost your time, and how to recover them, with TIPS and Strategies too!
You will need to fill up the worksheet and do a review on the difference between your productive times and the unproductive hours. Once you have identified where you are wasting your precious hours, you will be able to reduce or eliminate them from your daily routine. You can then make time for the more important areas to focus on.
While it’s not hard to change, we need patience and perseverance to change a habit.
Research has shown that to successfully change a habit, we need to continuously practise them for at least 21 days.
Keep trying until it becomes your new habit and lifestyle. Maximize what you can do with your time so that you can complete and achieve much more than you can now.
