How to effectively manage your time while studying and working

By Vanni Bhardwaj

Whether you’re a working professional or a student, time management is a super skill that can seriously boost your productivity. 

  1. Managing time and Staying Organized: Our brains are for having ideas, not holding them. One big reason things slip through the cracks is that we haven’t written them down, whether it's on a piece of paper or on your phone. Using a to-do list, calendars, and planners helps us remember tasks and stay organised.

  2. Prioritising tasks: Identifying the correct order of important or time-consuming tasks so that you can set aside time for them wisely. Doing the important tasks first helps avoid feeling overwhelmed.

  3. Time blocking:  Allocating dedicated time blocks for various tasks - whenever something needs to be done, schedule a block for it in the calendar. It's reassuring because it ensures that important tasks are always on the schedule. Even if something comes up, you can move it around, but at least it's there by default.

  4. Parkinson’s Law: It states that work expands to fill the time allocated to it. To prevent this you should leverage artificial deadlines. Setting realistic but firm deadlines for tasks will help with procrastination and efficiency.

  5. Self-Care: Setting aside time to de-stress and recharge is very important. We can’t be productive and manage our time well if we’re tired. Having set times for breaks either in-between tasks or after, whether small or long, to prevent burnout also helps maintain overall concentration.

By following these you can be much more efficient and productive in your endeavours.
