					Strengthen Skills in Time Management
             We want to strengthen our skills in time management, since it is essential for a
    successful life. College students are very aware of time management, yet many of the
    students struggle to maintain a productive level of time. Since, most students attend
    classes, work a job, search for time with families and friends, and strive to find time for
    their own needs, time management is an ongoing effort. If most of these students went to
    class with a positive attitude half of their time would be spent wisely.

               If you have very little experience with managing your time, it might be wise to
    do a little research, or else talk with a professional that is experienced with time
    management. If you are employed, you might want to find someone outside of your
    business that can support you and help you learn time management skills. The reason you
    would go outside the business is that studies have shown that many businesses both small
    and large often struggle with time management. Plans are the steps to setting up a time
    management scheme, but we must realize that plans can, will, and has failed. Regardless,
    who is putting a plan in action there are always changes. Someone outside of your
    business can be more open-minded, looking at the problem objectively and help you to
    get on track again. If you are planning in your business, this is positive; however, you
    must realize that disasters are a reality. Setting your priorities straight is also important to
    a leading time management scheme. When you set priorities and work hard to achieve
    your goals, you are then strengthening your skills. College students are often struggling,
    simply because many of them procrastinate, or have difficulties in a course and refuse to
    ask for help. Alternatively, they are too busy worrying about other things outside of
    college, including entertainment, which distracts the mind. Therefore, we can strengthen
    our skills by looking at the situation and realizing that distractions are a mishap waiting
    to happen, and refusal to ask for help, is a road to disaster. Procrastination is not an
    option if you are striving for success. Procrastination waste time and energy, and only
    adds up the tasks you already had on your plate. If you are planning a date, don’t sit at
    your desk worrying about what you are going to wear, rather get on your feet and get
    your work done first. When you go on that date you will find yourself more relaxed and
    your date will thank you since they probably worried all day what they were going to
    wear. We all have shortcomings that prevent us from achieving our goals. The key to
    strengthen your time management skills is to move those obstacles within out of your
    way, so you can run over the obstacles outward head on without complications. Do not
    procrastinate, do not worry, do not avoid your responsibilities and you strength and
    success will enhance tremendously.
