Time Management for Success
Updated: Mar 28, 2021
As students, we constantly have precise deadlines to meet. As learners, we are bombarded with hundreds of activities that compete for our attention. Most importantly, as human beings, we need some chill-time. How do we fit all these activities into a 24-hour day?
Student life is extremely challenging. It does not matter how many exams you did along the years, or how many nights you stayed up finalizing that damned paper because the pressure to be productive and associated stress are difficult to habituate to. Imagine, for a moment, the following situations. Imagine yourself yelling at your partner for pushing you into registering to take an exam when you don’t feel ready; or having to give up a Sunday in a picturesque city because you were not able to organize your university workload during the weekdays; and now it’s Friday afternoon and you are furiously writing a final course paper, cursing yourself for not starting it sooner.
If one or more of these stories sounds familiar to you, it means that you have struggled with time management. As students, we constantly have precise deadlines to meet. As learners, we are bombarded with hundreds of activities that compete for our attention. Most importantly, as human beings, we need some chill-time. How do we fit all these activities into a 24-hour day? Time management is the process of organizing and planning how to divide our time. Good time management practices enable us to study smarter and to be more efficient and successful in our academic, professional, and personal lives. Students who effectively organize their daily routines achieve so much more than others and the formula is right there.
As the January exam session approaches, one of the most pressing issues that students face is how to effectively manage their time to achieve optimal results. The SET members recognise these difficulties and have organised an online session to help students study better, with less stress. During this community conversation, the facilitators will address three core issues: stress management, prioritization, and procrastination. The facilitators, Christine Nanteza, Monique Munarini and Giulia Rosina, are 2-year HRG students who have handled stressful situations throughout their academic careers by adopting positive coping mechanisms, using time management practices, and minimizing time-wasters.
They will share their experiences making meaningful reference to scientific research, mainly from motivational and psychological studies, and provide concrete tips to make your student life less stressful. These community conversations aim to empower the students through open, non-judgmental dialogue about our struggles and how we have overcome them.
The event is free and open to UniPD students and the public through our secure RSVP portal. Join us on Friday, 15th January at 6pm.
