Time Management

Speaking from personal experience, there seems to be two main methods of time management. The first method involves using timetables, schedules and diaries and the second method is for those who donít need, or cant stand the use of timetables and diaries and soforth. I will now discuss the application of these two separately defined methods for use in Year 12.

Doing it the the 'organized way' - Using timetables

Timetables are by far the most useful tool for organizing big blocks of work in set periods of time. For people that have the control to write the timetable and obey it, a much higher level of efficiency can be achieved. Following is a step by step guide on how to apply timetables to work and recreation during year 12.

'The other way' - for those that can't stand timetables and diaries

I can understand those people who say that they cant run by a schedule or any time oriented task list, simply because I am one of these people. Most people such as my self argue that timetables and scheduling never works because of the unpredictable, yet inevitable X factor (the unknown). There always seems to be something that interrupts which then renders the entire regime of the timetable totally useless.

Unfortunately it is this group of people who often find it hard to get things done, since the traditional forms of timetableing and scheduling donít work for them. Following is a quick and simple method to make sure that you get things done, without the use of any system that binds you to a time frame.

This way, there are no daily time restrictions and you know clearly what work is to be done, the date that it is due in and therefore the priority it should take. Hence, if any surprise interruptions happen (which it will), the entire weeks timetable doesn't have to be restructured.
