The end of 2013 is one of the busiest times in my life. I have just come back from Global Network Week at Yale School of Management. Right after I arrived in Dublin, I must come back to UCD Smurfit’s campus immediately to study Financial Reporting for the next examination. Whenever you open your Google Calendar, it is full of tasks from day to day.
After class in the morning, we also spend time to work in groups for the next assignments or presentations. At the weekend, we also have an abundance of readings for the following week. At first, I felt quite overloaded but Google Calendar and EverNote applications have helped me so much in time management. I did a workshop on time management as part of the Leadership Development Programme (LDP) which is part of the UCD Smurfit MBA.
Every week, I always list a series of tasks that need to be done and put all of them in To-do-list Folder in Evernote so I can open it on my smart phone. I order them from the least to the most important tasks and begin to solve in that order.
Having good time management skills helps you not only to solve all duties in class but also allows you to join in many school events.
It’s a big world and there’s a lot to be done!
