Step Manage Your Time Well We all have the same amount of time—24 hours a day/168 hours a week. How we use our time is called time management. David never uses time in class to start on homework, and he sleeps during study hall. He usually plays video games after school, and after dinner he sits in front of his computer or watches TV. Around 10 pm, David turns on some music and starts his homework. He stops often to text his friends, so it usually takes at least two hours for him to get his homework done. David generally goes to bed around midnight. He often oversleeps and is then late to school. When David’s parents talk to him about being late to school, David complains that he oversleeps because he has to stay up late to finish his homework.
