Time Management Tips

• Be realistic

• Know your ‘good study’ times

• Give yourself enough breaks

• Plan time for activities outside studying

• Use the course calendar to guide you

• Be prepared not to be perfect – if you fall behind, do what you need to survive rather than what you’d do in ideal circumstances

• Chat things through with me or the Study Advisors at the Regional Centre if you’re feeling under pressure

• Look ahead at the coming TMA and work towards it as you move through the course materials

• Prioritise using the 4Ds:

  • Do it
  • Dump it
  • Delegate it
  • Do it less well

• Focus your efforts using the 80/20 rule – 80% of the result you want can be gained by concentrating on the most important 20% of tasks
