Time Management Activity
1. For the next week keep a written record of all your activities. Include in your record the time of day you do things, what kinds of things you did, and how long it took you to do them. Organize this information any way you wish, but make sure you account for ALL of your time. Be sure to include the time that you were just sitting there, seemingly doing "nothing".
2. Look at your accounting of your time.
Did you get everything finished that was assigned to you by the deadlines given? For example, did you get all your homework done?

5. Share your chart with your classmates. Compare how different people used different charts. What were some good things about the different charts and how well did the schedules work?
6. One thing that is constant in life is change. What you are doing in your free time now may not be how you use your free time in six months. If you have a winter sport that you are participating in, you know that when the season is over, your schedule will change. If you are involved in a school play or musical performance you will be busier just before the performance date than you are at the beginning of the practices. Take a step back and look at the big picture. What will your calendar for the year look like? Pick a time period out of that calendar and predict a schedule that you could follow.
7. Make up a schedule for the next five weeks. Be sure to include any changes you anticipate due to sports or other activities that have seasons or peak times. Use this schedule and be prepared to critiqe it at the end of 5 weeks.
