Blog Post #1
After watching the video of Dr. Pausch I will now start doing some time management techniques to see if it will help me with managing my time more wisely. Dr. Pausch had very many great tips such as making a to do list and getting the harder items done first. I am going to apply many of his tips to this class as well to see if it will help. I need all the help I can get with time management. I am a big procrastinator and really have to do better this semester. Also, having a plan is a great thing to have and you always can make changes to your plan just have to have one first.
I read the articles on Penn States website and feel it was very helpful. I have a really big problem with time management at home. At work and school I pretty much get done what I need to get done but when I get off and home things are different. I have a lot of distractions that are going to have to change. I am going to start using my planner more often and sticking to the plan as well as schedule as much as I can. Organization also plays a big role in time management for me. If I feel like I am organized I can work better. So this semester I will try to use my planner, make designated time schedules for my work , and stay more organized.
