Time Management Hack: Weekly Time Budget Sheet

Time Management Hack: Weekly Time Budget Sheet


Does your week get filled up with activities
and you have no time left to study? Do you wonder where your time goes? Imagine this jar represents all the time you
have in a week. The pebbles represent the urgent tasks in
a week and the sand represents all the little activities that take up our time, such as
sending email, texting, surfing the web, or watching online videos. The rocks represent our goals for the week,
such as classes, work, studying for an exam, or writing a paper. Without a plan, our jar gets full quickly. And there is no room for our goals. But, if we put our big rocks in first, there
is still room for the urgent tasks, as well as the small, daily activities. Use a time budget sheet to help you make time
for your goals. Put your classes on the schedule. Add your
work hours. Add time for meals. If you commute, include travel time – including time to find
parking! Include club meetings, spiritual activities, and anything else that happens
on a regular basis. This is considered your master schedule. Next you can add study time for each of your
classes – usually 2 hours for every hour in class. If your study times change, copy your
schedule and add your study time each week. Better yet, create a google calendar and you
will have access to it wherever you have an internet connection. You can even sync it
with your phone’s calendar. Use the weekly time budget sheet, along with
a semester calendar, and daily planner to master all of your time management needs.
