It’s important that you develop effective strategies for managing your time to balance the conflicting demands of time for study, leisure, earning money and job-hunting. Whether we assign a dollar value to it or not, time is valuable to us. There are lots of different ways to tackle the issue of time management — you can download apps, adjust your sleep time, create lists, etc. But if you don’t fully understand why it’s important for you to better manage your time, those apps and lists aren’t going to help you. If you don’t have the motivation to use them, you won’t.
Sometimes it may seem that there isn’t enough time to do everything that you need to. This can lead to a build-up of stress. When revising for examinations, or during your final year when you have to combine the pressures of intensive study with finding time to apply for jobs good management of your time can be particularly important. Once we have identified ways in which we can improve the management of our time, we can begin to adjust our routines and patterns of behaviour to reduce any time-related stress in our lives.
You can’t change the number of hours in a day, but you can fill them more efficiently, with less stress and mental effort. You’ve likely heard this before, and perhaps your past efforts at time management have been, well, a waste of time. But most people’s attempts to increase productivity get derailed by two virtues of modern living: technology and options
There are many ways by which you can save your time for other things:-
Finish simple tasks.
Always complete easy tasks, like reading a memo — never switch between small projects
Break up complex tasks.
Complex tasks like building a budget differ from simple ones: You can complete them more quickly and efficiently by breaking them up.
Willpower is key to efficiency — and just like the muscles in your body, if you exercise it more frequently, you can improve it.
Develop Google discipline.
Keep a calendar, not a to-do list.
Pull, don’t push.
Limit your choices.
Do the most important task first.
Delegate everything except your greatest strengths.
Rush the unimportant.
Compress your time.
Have a leaving time.
By applying these things you can manage your time or save your time for other things
