Mastering the Clock with Time Management and Tips


Time management is key in creating a productive learning environment and helps students accomplish their assignments faster and easier. 

“As a senior, time management really helps me stay organized while balancing school, my job, sports, and personal life,” said senior Emma Rice. 

Time management allows students to figure out when to focus on schoolwork, which days to work, and when to have some fun. It’s all about finding a place for everything to fit nicely without being overwhelmed.

“I like to use a calendar to evenly distribute all my activities and work I have to do for the week,” said junior Kiley Johnson. 

Using a calendar is a common way to manage time. It allows planning ahead, visualizing one’s schedule for the week or month, and keeping track of due dates and appointments. It can help students to spot free time and plan breaks once the calendar is filled out. 

“When it comes to school, time management really helps me in multiple ways, like getting all my work completed on time,” Rice said. 

Time management has several methods, like the Pomodoro Technique. This is a method to set an amount of time to work, like 30 minutes, then take a short break after, rinse and repeat.  By separating to-do tasks evenly, it distributes equal work time allowing increased progress on various tasks. A to-do list can also aid with time management. The list can be written anywhere, from having it in the notes app to simply writing it down somewhere where the note can’t be missed. 

“I have a spreadsheet for yearbook that has a checklist, so that I stay organized,” said junior Piper Pruitt.

Time blocking is another tactic that can help make the most of time. Time blocking is simply setting aside specific amounts of time focusing specifically on school work. During these periods, block out any potential distractions to help focus on the task at hand. For example, devote 30 minutes to school work while blocking out electronic devices, pets, friends, family etc. during those 30 minutes. 

 “Putting my phone away helps me not be distracted while doing my homework,” junior Olivia Carota said.

Although putting potential distractions can help many, it is also important to find a method that is most compatible with one’s personal learning style. A method that suits personal preferences can help students stay organized and productive in a way that feels natural. When a method is enjoyed it is easier to stick with it and make the most out of one’s time. 

“Time management really helps to make me feel accomplished overall, and I believe that many should recognize it as it is very useful,” Johnson said.
