I sent a survey out to my email subscribers a couple weeks ago, asking what their biggest challenges are.
Here’s one person’s response:
“Trying to make it through college without going insane. I’m taking 18 credits and work around 15 hours a week. I really wish I could manage everything, get good grades without doing extreme studying, and find time to do things that I want to do for fun or little side projects.”
Here’s another one:
“Life would just be so much easier if sleep wasn’t a necessity and one could actually have a 24 hour day. I juggle a job, dual credit classes, and 5 different clubs.”
Here’s one more:
“Managing two majors, work, and trying to squeeze in a little bit of fun.”
The #1 response, by and large, was related to time management.
And guess what? Even after having spent the last few years trying to improve my own time management skills, I still consider time management to be my biggest challenge, too.
That’s why this post is going to be shorter than normal—because I don’t have time to write a longer one.
As you may or may not know, I started working full-time in August. The first month or so started out pretty slow, but then things picked up. These last few weeks have been extremely overwhelming, and I had to take this entire last week off from writing in order to catch up on my work.
So, today, I’m going to do things a little bit differently.
Instead of offering you advice on how to better manage your time, I thought I’d ask you—what’s your best time management tip?
I’ll put together the top five or so tips and share them in my next post.
