    Time management includes tools or techniques for planning and scheduling time, usually with the aim to increase the effectiveness and/or efficiency of personal and corporate time use. These are embodied in a number of books, seminars and courses, which may offer conflicting advice. The common denominators of these strategies are a to-do-list, setting priorities and goal management. Some of the best known examples of time management strategies are tied to specific lines of time management products.

    Time management for personal use is a type of self-management. In a corporate setting, time management software can satisfy the need to control employees, make it easier to coordinate work and increases accountability of individual employees.

    Planning time and writing to-do-lists also consumes time and needs to be scheduled. This is one of the major criticisms of time management.

    The four generations of time management

    Stephen R. Covey offers a categorization scheme for the hundreds of time management approaches that are on the market today.

    First generation: reminders

    Aficionados of this approach limit their time management efforts to keeping lists and notes. They see these papers as reminders. Items that are not done by the end of the day are transferred to the next day's list in the evening. Covey also calls this type of style the "Far Eastern, Go with the Flow".

    Second generation: planning and preparation

    People in the second generation use calendars and appointment books. They will note where meetings are held and identify deadlines; this is sometimes even done on a computer. As opposed to the first generation, the second generation plans and prepares, schedules future appointments, and sets goals. This in turn saves their time.

    Third generation: planning, prioritizing, controlling

    Third generation time managers prioritize their activities on a daily basis. They tend to use detailed forms of daily planning on a computer or on a paper-based organizer. This approach implies spending some time in clarifying values and priorities.

    Fourth generation: being efficient and proactive

    Stephen R. Covey, in First Things First, refers to his approach as the 4th generation time management, and emphasizes the difference between urgency and importance in planning. For example: some people may go their entire lives completely missing out on important things (like spending time with their children before they have grown up) because it was never "urgent." The point is not to ignore urgent things, but to embrace important things without waiting for them to become urgent.

    Urgency can be deceptive. It can make some unimportant things appear to be important. Also, making time for important things may require spending less time on unimportant things, regardless of their urgency.

    Time management is important to any student, but it is particularly important to those involved in student organizations. Involvement in an extra-curricular activity or group means that in addition to classes, meals, jobs, and socializing, another significant amount of your time is automatically taken when it comes to scheduling your day. The information presented here and on the linked pages provides some pointers on how to more efficiently manage one of your most precious resources, time! Managing your time is a highly personal skill. Only you know your peak work hours, your attention span, and your eating and sleeping needs. Using what you know about yourself, you can create an effective time management strategy. Do not pretend to be a morning person if you are not. Be honest with yourself.

    另一個由Dr. Jacobs寫嘅有關time management文章 (1)Time management reduces stress, increases productivity, and makes life a lot easier on the whole. Planning does not have to be very strict and demanding, but rather doing your work the easiest and most efficient way possible.

    (2) Making a large time table of calendar to outline the actual time available for studying is important. That way you can literally visualize what the options are and can make manageable goals based on the available time.

    2007-04-22 19:27:35 補充:

    (3)It should include the activities that are necessary and constant like sleep, a job, or classes. One mistake that I always make is to underestimate the time that something will take.

    2007-04-22 19:28:44 補充:

    (4)You can avoid this problem by giving a lot of room for an activity that might not take that long. Any extra time is a treat instead of panicking because your planning was off.里個好貼切你個QUESTION..
