Time Management Exercises 
  • List your tasks in your notebook and prioritize them by putting star marks beside them. For example, give 5 stars for the most urgent/important work and 1 star for the least important task. Don’t miss out to list your personal tasks as well like spending time with family or a long due visit to your grandparents.
  • Once you have prioritized your tasks, determine how much time you will spend for each task. Assign more time to the most important tasks.
  • While assigning time to your tasks, also consider the period when you will be full of energy. For example, if you feel refreshing and more energetic in the early morning, schedule your important tasks at early hours. If you feel sleepy during the afternoon, assign light task that doesn’t require more concentration.
  • If you are a student, keep a daily routine chart with you. Divide your time between sports and studies uniformly. Stick to your time table.
  • Learn to say a “no” to friends at times.
  • Don’t spend whole day studying or playing. Take out some time for productive jobs too.
  • Everyday tally your chart with the routine you have followed that day so that you can better understand whether you are following the routine.
  • Although time management may seem boring and challenging at the beginning, focus on it hard and you will soon become accustomed to your daily routine.
  • Encourage kids to understand the value of time management and try to incorporate this practice within them from their childhood.
  • To begin with, you can maintain a log where you can note down your activities for every 15 minutes. This is a great way to understand where and how you spend most of your time. You can then schedule your tasks in a more effective way.
  • Delegate the less important tasks that needs to be done but can be done without you. For example, hire a gardener to look after your garden or a cleaner to clean your home weekly. This way you can save a lot of time that you can spend on other important tasks. You can also use this extra time to do some productive work.
  • Practice a little more self discipline and you can end up managing your time effectively.
