Time Management and Organising my Studies

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Time Management Introduction For my assignment, I am going to begin with addressing the issues impacting the organisation of my studies, continuing on to discuss the possible resolutions, and concluding with an action plan devised to implement these resolutions. Issues There are many distractions that can affect the organisation of study. Personally, my biggest time stealers are procrastination, poor decision making and organisation skills. I will often put tasks off with the notion that "there is plenty of time" or "that can be done later" etc. "Never leave 'till tomorrow which you can do today."

I will take responsibility for managing my time effectively, as ultimately only I can do so. The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot. Michael Altshuler ...read more.
