Time management: a short guide

A short guide to time management


Create timelines and break your work into smaller, more manageable tasks.

Knowing that you have to write a 2,500-word essay may initially seem scary, especially before the start of the writing process. To simplify your work, plan to write a particular amount of words per day. For example, you could set a target of 300 words per day. Breaking down your work into chunks makes it so much easier to handle.

What are your goals

When creating your timeline, set short and medium-term goals and deadlines for yourself, according to the amount of work you need to put in. Then you can estimate the time needed to write an essay draft or work on a presentation. Your goals should always be challenging but realistic.
