Chalk Talk: How to Manage Time Effectively
In our increasingly fast-paced, multi-tasking world, the very thing that we live by may be what’s getting in our way. Time. Punctuality and reliability are hallmarks of responsibility, but valuing and organizing “our” time is worth its weight in peace. By managing time, we are able to complete important tasks and accomplish goals, while meeting those externally imposed deadlines. The first aspect of managing time is to prioritize. It is not just important to do this every time you’re making plans, but it is a helpful habit. Being able to identify what is truly important—and urgent—and what can wait until later will help you to be more productive and stress less about the “small stuff”. It is also important to prioritize your priorities. For example, there are many facets of your life, including school, work, home, family, friends, etc. Each aspect of your life has its own list of priorities, but don’t forget that some of the areas in your life are more important than others; be sure to address those first.
