Proper time management is one of the most important virtues a student needs to master to be successful. For those that fail to develop these skills, their college experience is usually over about as fast as it starts. For those mastering time management concepts, college is a breeze and a lot less stressful and it saves the student a lot of money on dropped or audited classes.
We like how Bucks County Community College approaches the subject. Their three big questions are?
- Why are you in college?
- What are your educational goals?
- What are your career goals?
That kind of puts your priorities in perspective. In order to help learn time management principals they ask:
- Are you a morning person? What time of day are you at peak performance?
- Where do you study? Are there distractions?
