Moreover, as students that have a lot of activities such as studying, doing task, organization, and others activity outside of college.  So they have to be smarter to manage their time to make their life balance. Time management is needed to improve the academic level and personal performance. Besides that, have good time management can reduce stress, be more successful, be more productive, and help to set the priority. Then, how to manage the time effectively? Let’s take a look.

1.    Knowing your goals
What is your goal? Make sure you know what your goal is. Why? It’ll help you to set a priority and know what you have to do to reach your goal. And you should make a daily plan or to-do-list, to avoid the activities that wasting time or should not to do or doesn’t support your goals.

2.    Delegating
Before doing a task, ask yourself, “Why me?” Delegate whenever reasonable and possible. Get over the guilt of delegating, think of it as a leadership-building opportunity for others in your practice. Many tasks can be handled effectively (or even more effectively) by others. Don’t use your time to do something that someone else can do better.

3.    Stop procrastinating
When you get procrastinating, ask yourself “why you are procrastinating”. Are you tired? Are you bored? And why you waste your time and energy on things you are putting off? You have to be aware of what needs to done. The hardest part is simply getting started.

4.    Learn to say “no”
When someone asks you to do something that you really don’t have time to do, say so, politely but firmly. And don’t allow yourself to feel guilty.

5.    Sleep!!!!!!!
People need to sleep at least 7-8 hours per day. Less sleep will make fatigue, disorganization, and sense of loss of control. And it might leads to reduced productivity and quality of your efforts, both professional and personal, stress and anxiety that take up valuable time and energy.

Time is limited guys, so use it wisely. A wise man, H. Jackson Brown Jr. said “Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
