									Teaching Time Management Skills

Teaching time management skills is like any other form of teaching. When
you teach a concept, it takes time before a student or the person is able
to learn and fully develop that skill. Teaching the concepts is not
enough, but you also need to follow up on your student to make sure that
they regularly use whatever skill they have learned. That way, they make
good use of it and be able to think of ways to enhance that skill. These
are some time management skills that you can focus on when teaching your
students.

1.) Prioritizing

Prioritizing is one of the basic concepts you must teach your student
with regards to time management. This is because most people are hampered
by too many activities at once. Many could fall into the idea of
finishing a task just for the sake of it, not knowing that there are more
important activities to attend to first. But the more crucial part here
is identifying which ones should be top priority, because after all when
it is in your list it should be important. Bottom line us, time
management would depend on your own mental state of the amount of control
you have of your time.

2.) Planning For Long-Term Time Management

You can also teach your students how to plan for long-term tasks and
projects. Let them create a mindset that enables them to project their
lives 6 months from now. As much as you want to establish the importance
of their day to day activities, setting future goals are what drives your
present activities.

Once they have realized the importance of future goals, they will
understand the importance of being able to accomplish their everyday
tasks. Hence, setting long-term goals and breaking them into smaller
chunks (such as daily or weekly goals), you would gradually build that
skill.

3.) Reviewing Daily Tasks

The third most important skill to master is the daily review of what just
transpired within a given day. You must practice how to review and
examine the work you accomplished for a day. Ask your students about what
specific parts of the day were they able to manage their time
efficiently, and which part of the day were they most unproductive.
Hence, this will allow them to recognize the flaws in their own time
management skills. Unless your students recognize them, they won't be
able to fix them.

4.) Commitment To Higher Learning

Another major skill to teach your students is the ability to strive for
learning and commitment to further improve their time management skill.
It should be a continuous process. You can give them advices when it
comes to time management careers, so they would know exactly where to go.
As they learn new skills from time to time, they continue to improve
themselves and advance their own time management skills.

Tell you students that their focus everyday should be on gradual and
continual improvement of their time management skills. Once they have
done this long enough, they should be able to form good habits that can
lead them into even greater success in their lives.
