“If I spent as much time doing the things I worry about getting done as I spend worrying about doing them, I wouldn’t have time to have anything to worry about.”
Those people who find schoolwork easy are those who can organize their work:
– They are able to work on their own;
– They can fit their work to a flexible timetable;
– They are willing to stick to it.
Wise use of time is the key to success – and not just in terms of schoolwork. Your time must be divided up in many other directions.
For example, how much time do you devote to the following?
Draw up a table like this, complete it, and see.
|Hours per week
|Meals (including snacks!)
So what was your total?…..
There are, of course, 168 hours in a week! How is YOUR time divided between
important and unimportant
useful and useless
productive and unproductive
In fact, ALL of the activities listed above should be given time in a well-planned timetable. Move on to the next page now!
