Time Management With good time management, you have less stress and more free time. You also feel more in control of your life. Be organized Being organized is a tremendous time saver. When you’re organized, you know what you have to do, and you have the information and the materials you need. To help you stay organized, use a planner to keep track of assignments, tests, and appointments. Use a wall calendar for major events and project deadlines. Make To Do lists 1. Each day make a list of all the things you need to do. 2. Rate each item as an A (must do today), B (should do today), or C (want to do today, but it can wait). 3. Take all of the As and rank them in order of impor- tance (1, 2, 3...). Do the same with the Bs and Cs. 4. Rewrite your list with the As at the top (in order of importance), followed by the Bs and Cs. 5. Cross things off as they get done. At the end of each day, take the tasks that didn’t get done and put them on the next day’s To Do list.
