Time management for college students youtube

With so much to do and keep track of, strong time management skills can make all the difference.

1. Get -- and use -- a calendar. It can be a paper calendar. It can be your cell phone. It can be a PDA. No matter what kind it is, though, make sure you have one.

2. Write down everything. Write down everything in one place. (Having multiple calendars just gives you more to do amidst an already tight schedule.) Schedule when you plan to sleep, when you are going to do your laundry, when you're going to call your parents. The crazier your schedule gets, the more important this becomes.

3. Schedule time to relax. Don't forget to schedule in time to relax and breathe. Just because your calendar goes from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. doesn't mean you can.

4. Keep trying new systems. If your cell phone calendar isn't big enough, buy a paper one. If your paper one keeps getting torn, try a PDA. If you have too many things written down each day, try color-coding to help simplify.

Soshiku is an online assignment management platform for high school and college students that is free. It even sends email and text reminders for assignments that are due – making it easy to stay on top of online test prep and other responsibilities.

  • Teens who keep separate schedules for each of their responsibilities (school, sports, social life, work, etc.) reach even more of their goals.
  • Teens must make sleep an integral part of their time management plans.
  • Teens who sleep an average of 7.3 hours a night are technically sleep deprived.
  • Teens need 9 hours of sleep at night, and those who get it often have higher grades.*
  • Teens should add an additional 25% to time estimates for completing projects for truly accurate time management planning, and to create buffer zones to absorb unplanned mishaps.
  • 5. Allow for flexibility. Things inevitably come up that you weren't expecting.

    You may not have known that your roommate's birthday is this week, and you certainly don't want to miss the celebrations! Leave room in your calendar so that you can move things around a little when needed.

    6. Plan ahead. Do you have a large research paper due the last week of the semester? Work backward in your calendar and figure out how much time you need to write it, how much time you'll need to research it, and how much time you'll need to pick your topic.

    If you think you'll need six weeks for the entire project, work backward from the due date and schedule the time into your calendar before it's too late.

    7. Plan for the unexpected. Sure, you just might be able to pull off two papers and a presentation during midterms week. But what happens if you catch the flu the night you're supposed to be pulling the all-nighter? Expect the unexpected so you don't have to spend more unplanned time trying to fix your mistakes.

  • Teens thrive when they manage their time in an individualized style that works for them (written schedules, online tools, etc) 
  • (*According to a Brown University study of teen achievement and sleep, A students were consistently sleeping more at night than the students getting Ds and Fs.)

    It may (or may not) be surprising that there are many web based tools to help teens manage their time more efficiently. In addition to the calendars and alarms on their cell phones, there are a slew of organizations and companies offering the help students need to get their time in order so they can complete school work and online test prep.
