Time Management

There are only 168 hours in every week.  What you do with them and how you manage them will likely have the single greatest impact on your success at Auburn.  You may feel that you do not have enough time to go to class, study, rest, and have fun in college.  That simply is not the case.  Look at the following:

Total hours per week                                                           168

Sleep (Yes, that is 8 hours per night)                                   -56

Academic pursuits (class, labs, study)                                  -45

Time remaining to do whatever                                          67!!    

As you see, you can be a successful student and still have more time to do “whatever” than anything else you do in the week.  The problem is not the amount of time; it is managing the time you have.  The following websites will give you some important clues on how to more effectively manage your time.

  • Time Management Principles

  • Rescue Time, Time Management App
