Have you ever gone to bed at night feeling like you didn't get anything done in the day? Chances are you need to work on your time management more. Time Management can be tricky and difficult to learn, but the rewards are enormous. You can learn faster, get more work done, and most importantly feel great about your life! Make a to-do list Having a to-do list is the single most important time management skill. It allows you to plan your time according to what is most important to your long-term goals. I like to keep post-it notes by my bedside at all times. Before bed i will jot down a few of my goals for the next day. The small size of the pad is perfect because it prevents me from planning too much. It is very common to over-estimate how much we can get done. Avoid Multi-tasking Studies have shown that multi-tasking is not all its cracked up to be. This study from Stanford suggests that multi-tasking is completely un-natural and only something a fool would try. The study gathered dozens of university students who claimed to be 'masters of multi-tasking' after examining their performance they realized they were 50% more likely to make a mistake than non-multi-taskers. Learn Faster with Free Learning Tools As you know I am a big fan of using websites to help learn even faster. One cool website I have been using is StudyBlue. This site collects all the flashcards and documents from universities around the world and compiles them into one place. You can unblur study blue using this guide, and even get free accounts with a bit of effort. This is similar to course hero and chegg in some ways, but it is even more free and has a simpler and more lite design. Try 10 times harder Because it is easy to overestimate what we can accomplish it is important to plan on giving 10x the effort to get a task done. If you think it will take you 3 months to learn french, plan on spendng 30 months before you are actually fluent, either that or spend 10 hours a day studying instead of 1 hour.
