Time Management

What can you do right now to manage your time more effectively?

Make a list of everything you need to do - everything you can think of. What do you need to get done today, tomorrow, next week, next month, etc. Make your notes as detailed as possible, so that when you look back over them, you'll know exactly what needs to be done.

Next, decide what is most important to you. What are your long-term goals? Are they listed on your to-do list already? If not, add them now. Break them down into small tasks. For example, if you want to get a college degree but haven't started yet, write "obtain college application", then "complete college application", etc.

Prioritize your tasks. Make sure you include those things that are most important to you on your daily task list. It's easy to be "reactive" and do whatever comes at you. Be proactive; take charge of your life!
