9 Time Self-Analysis SECTION 1 1B Where does your time go? Have you ever wondered where your money goes to? You might be given pocket money, or money for your birthday or earn some money, but unless you put it away, before you know it the money has disappeared and you aren t quite sure where you spent it all. It is the same with how we spend our time. Many people don t realise just how much time they actually spend on certain activities. See how well you can estimate time by trying the multiple choice questions below. Don t try and actually work out the calculations, just go with your first instinct or reaction. Circle your response for each question below: 1. The number of hours you will spend in a classroom this year is closest to: a) 800 b) 1100 c) 1900 d) The number of hours you will spend sleeping this year is closest to: a) 2900 b) 2000 c) 1500 d) The number of minutes of television the average person watches in a month is: a) 500 b) 1500 c) 3500 d) The number of minutes most people spend brushing their teeth in a month is: a) 0 b) 40 c) 150 d) The number of seconds students should spend on homework in a week is: a) b) c) 8000 d) 0 6. The number of seconds it should have taken you to do this quiz is probably: a) 2 b) 30 c) 180 d) 500 It can be hard to realistically estimate time. Wondering what the correct answers are? Here s a clue. The other day I caught a bad cab.

10 Choose one day over the next week and fill in the table below for that day in order to see how your time is distributed during the 24 hours. If there are things that you wanted to do but also had to do, put them in the want to do column. THINGS YOU DID THAT YOU HAD TO DO Time Taken THINGS YOU DID THAT YOU WANTED TO DO Time Taken Eg tidy up room 40 mins Eg soccer training 1.5 hours TOTAL TIME: TOTAL TIME: Did your overall total time equal 24 hours? If not, it was probably less. It is difficult to account for every minute and we often waste quite a lot of time during the day. Some examples of time wasters are waiting for things to start, pottering around, not doing all that much or just flicking aimlessly through the channels (although you probably recorded that as watching television). The aim of this exercise is to start you thinking about where your time goes. What sorts of activities do you spend time on and how much time is unaccounted for in your day? In the space below, put a cross on the scale as to where you would rank your current ability to manage time: TIME MANAGEMENT ABILITY Poor Needs Improvement OK Good Excellent

11 Time Management Outcome Checklist What areas do you need to work on? SECTION 1 1C Although ELES produces Time Management Techniques for each year group, the checklist below is included in every Time Management resource regardless of the year level. It is a fact that students across all levels share common problems in managing their time but that these problems may change from year to year. Indeed, you could ask your parents to fill this checklist out with respect to work instead of school and you would find that they too are often facing similar challenges. In completing the list, don t feel discouraged if you are ticking lots of NONE s. Instead, pat yourself on the back for the things you are doing well. Everyone will have areas they can improve on, and that is what working through these worksheets is all about. For each of the following statements tick either: ALL of the time, MOST of the time, SOME of the time, A BIT of the time or NONE of the time. ALL MOST SOME A BIT NONE 1. I keep up-to-date with my schoolwork without many problems. 2. Istartworkingonassignmentswellbeforetheyaredue. 3. I don t end up leaving work till the last minute. 4. Ifinishassignmentsontime. 5. Ihandinallschoolworkontime. 6. I don t ask for extensions. 7. I don t feel stressed about the work I need to do for school. 8. I plan when I am going to do work. 9. I use my time in the classroom efficiently. 10. I use my time at home efficiently.

12 ALL MOST SOME A BIT NONE 11. I can estimate pretty well how long something will take. 12. I have time to do all the things I WANT to do. 13. When I sit down to do work I get lots done. 14. I am not easily distracted. 15. I am self-disciplined and can make myself do what I need to do. 16. I know at the start of the day what I want to get done that day. 17. Ifeelincontrolofmytime. 18. I am able to juggle commitments to family and friends. 19. I can find extra time to do things if I need to. 20. I am able to reschedule activities if necessary. 21. I have ways to make myself do things I have been putting off. 22. I am able to prioritise things to do by their level of importance. 23. I am aware when I am wasting time and can stop myself doing it. 24. I use self rewards to help motivate myself to do things. 25. I am able to set goals as to what I want to do and work to them. Now look back through the list at some of the statements for which you ticked NONE. Which of these bothers you the most? Which causes you the most stress? Which do you most want to do something about? Which do you know you really should try and improve? In the space below, describe the areas of time management that you think you most need to work on.

13 SECTION 1 1D Core Time Management Skills Let s examine the essential time management techniques. There are some fundamental or core techniques for effective time management. Even if you have worked through the next four pages in a previous year, it is worthwhile reviewing them again before progressing to the section on new techniques in order to ensure you are still on track. If this is the first time you have used one of the ELES Time Management Techniques resources, you need to be comfortable with these techniques before progressing to the next section. The true secret to Time Management is: YOU CAN T ACTUALLY MANAGE TIME. YOU MUST MANAGE YOURSELF. To improve the way you manage yourself, the following first 3 steps are essential: STEP Often Sometimes Rarely How often do you currently do these steps? Put a tick in one of the boxes for each of the steps. 1 Set your goals. 2 Prioritise. 3 Schedule your time. STEP 1: SET YOUR GOALS Why set goals? Unless you know what you are aiming for you can t hit it! Imagine a boat without any particular destination in mind. It would float aimlessly among the seas and if it made it to land it would be due to luck rather than any other factor. By creating a goal, you have created something you can work towards. Goal setting helps increase your efforts and motivate you by giving you a direction towards which you can work. Many students are put off by the words goal setting. They have read information before detailing setting long-term, medium-term and short-term goals and have found the whole process overwhelming and unworkable. A GOAL IS JUST A LIST OF THINGS YOU EITHER HAVE TO DO OR WANT TO DO. If you think of goals in this way, you ll find them much less daunting and more workable.

25 TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES Fighting Procrastination Using this technique: Time Management Technique 5 Could you benefit from this technique? Page 1 When? When you find you are spending too much time on distractions and interruptions and not spending time on your work. How? - recognise that you are putting off the task - make a decision to start a particular step of the task at a certain time and aim to complete it by a certain time - eliminate distractions and minimise interruptions during this time period Why? Giving yourself permission to enjoy the procrastination and the feeling of doing nothing up to a particular time takes away any niggling feelings of guilt you might be feeling. Having a specific goal of exactly what you want to achieve and when you will do it helps you win out against procrastination. Tick any of the following thoughts that you have experienced before: I just can t be bothered doing any work. I ll start at the end of this program. I ll do it tomorrow. It won t matter if I leave it till later. I ll just do this first then I ll start it. I ll do it later. I ll start in a minute. Something to think about: It s really easy to fall prey to distractions. Think back to life in your grandparents day: there was much less distraction. Their choices were playing marbles or plucking the chicken for the evening s dinner. They certainly could not cope with the information overload we deal with every day. We live in a society that is incredibly focused on entertainment and finding more and more ways to keep us amused and interested. More than 2000 new websites go up every day. There are over 50 different TV series you can become addicted to. How can we not be distracted by this? Our world today doesn t help develop our attention span either. We are used to constant change in our activities and have trouble remaining focused. 9

27 TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES Learn From Others Time Management Technique 6 Page 1 Using this technique: When? Any time you feel you need some extra help in time management. How? -thinkaboutthe people you know and the areas in which they have skills - make a time to talk with friends or family to learn how they deal with problems they face in managing their time OR -getagroupof friends together to work after school and watch, listen and learn from how other people work Why? Not only will you learn from others but by working in a group situation you are more likely to use your time effectively. Could you benefit from this technique? Consider your friends and family. Can you think of someone who is: - organised - disciplined - motivated - hard-working - enthusiastic - thorough Something to think about: Have you noticed how if you only have one thing to do and lots of time to do it in it seems to drag on and take forever? The task expands to fill the available space. But if you have millions of things to do and limited time in which to do them suddenly you are very switched on and focused. So we need to tap into that energy without having to wait until last minute deadlines. One way to do this is to learn how other people deal with this common problem. Talk to your friends, your siblings, your parents observe what other people do. Do they set specific targets? Do they put reminders around the house? Do they put minideadlines on themselves? Do they use rewards to help themselves find this energy? 11

31 TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES Using Visualisation Time Management Technique 8 Page 1 Using this technique: When? Any time you are feeling anxious about what you need to do or complete, or want to ensure you use a block of time most efficiently. How? - close your eyes and create a positive mental picture where you see yourself doing what needs to be done -pictureeverything going smoothly and yourself completing everything you need to do in the time available Why? Our subconscious mind is incredibly powerful. It will take the pictures we feed it and work towards making these a reality. By visualising exactly what you want to happen, your mind will work towards making it a reality. Put a cross to mark where you would be on each of the scales below: Your thoughts are mostly: Happy postive thoughts Negative unhappy thoughts You are mostly an: Could you benefit from this technique? Optimistic person Pessimistic person Something to think about: Visualisation is an amazing technique. Many sports stars use this before their sporting activity to ensure they are focused on achieving their goals. They make a mental picture or a movie of what they want to happen and play it on the screen of their mind. The more detail they can add to the picture the more real it feels. A golfer will visualise a perfect swing and watch as the ball arcs through the air to the hole. A basketballer will see themselves jumping through the air and the ball landing in the basket. Have you ever noticed how what you think about tends to happen? If you are thinking about how something won t work or how you can t do something, be careful - it can become a reality! 15

33 TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES Conquer the Clutter Time Management Technique 9 Page 1 Using this technique: When? On a regular basis at the end of each evening before you go to bed. How? - sort through the material on your workspace -throwaway (or recycle) any rubbish -fileawayanything you are finished with -putneatlyintopiles the things you need to work on tomorrow Could you benefit from this technique? 1. Is your workspace organised and uncluttered? 2. Do you have shelves or drawers etc for filing? 3. Can you always find everything you need? 4. Do you waste time looking for things? 5. Do you paste in sheets and file away handouts? 6. Do you sort everything out at the end of the day? 7. Do you attempt to control the clutter in your room? Why? When the first thing you have to do before you start work is to rearrange the clutter, you are making it much more difficult for yourself to start and make the best use of your time. Something to think about: When you keep your workspace decluttered you feel more energetic, energised and inspired to work. Ending the day with things sorted, cleared and prepared ready to go for the next day gives you a good sense of closure and a feeling of completion. Coming the next day to a clearly organised work space makes it easier to focus on what is important for that day rather than having to deal with the leftovers of the previous day. This gives you greater energy, focus and direction. Chaos in your room tends to make you feel out of control. Everything on your desktop should be there for a reason. Have things you use daily and on a recurring basis like stationery ready at hand. Anything not being used daily, stick into a drawer. You want to keep an open working space. 17

35 TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES Optimal Study State Using this technique: Time Management Technique 10 Could you benefit from this technique? Page 1 When? If you have a weekend or an evening when you need to do quite a lot of work, use this technique to ensure you can maximise the time available to you. How? - ensure you have had a decent night s sleep -eatreallywellthat day: healthy food like fruit and veg, carbs -haveregularbreaks every half hour or so and get some fresh air -haveaplanbefore you start that has both work time and leisure times scheduled Why? When students have lots of work to do or exams to study for they sometimes decide to do things like stay up really late and try and work all day long without realising that they are making themselves less effective. As a result it will take them much longer to do anything compared to working while in an optimal study state. Put a cross to mark where you would be on each of the scales below: Your eating habits are: Very Healthy OK Unhealthy Overall your lifestyle (health, sleep, exercise, breaks) is: Balanced OK Unbalanced Something to think about: To improve your effectiveness, you can implement a number of simple techniques. Take a short break every half hour or so. This is vital. Most people cannot maintain their attention span for longer than this and if they remain at their desk their efficiency will reduce dramatically. A break also gives your brain time to absorb the information you have been studying before moving onto the new information. If you try and cram everything in at once, the information will not move into your long-term memory and will be quickly forgotten. Also ensure you drink lots of water when studying as dehydration causes short term memory loss. Where possible have fresh air coming into your room or take breaks where you can suck up much needed oxygen. 19
