When you work can be a big factor in how productive you can be. People who are good at managing their time know this and work it to their advantage.
If you want to crank up your productivity and reduce the hours you spend sweating over assignments and homework then you have to work out how you tick!
I could get all “zen” and start talking about your circadian rhythms, but I tned to prefer a more practical approach.
Basically, you know yourself if you are a morning person or a night owl. You probably already do some planning on this basis.
Now take it a step further…
There are times in the day, or week that are better for you than others for certain types of tasks. You may even be tuned into these on a subconscious level. You know you can never focus on math after you have been for a run, or that you need to socialize before you settle in to do English papers.
Think of the different types of activities you are involved in and consciously think about what would be good days or bad times to schedule these in.
- When is your creative time?
- When are you able to work on details?
- When is the best time for team working?
By consciously knowing your most effective time for your routine activities and using that understanding to plan your work, you will ramp up your productivity and have time left over.
