Once other students have posted their bios, go back to the Class Wall and read them, as well as your instructor’s bio.

Time Monitoring Worksheet

Details:

This assignment will help you develop an important skill for college and everyday life – time management. For this assignment, you will keep an informal time log in which you note all your activities for 3 days, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Then, you will review your activities to identify times when you were not productive. You should use this information for planning ways to make better use your time.

Part 1: Monitor your time in hourly increments.

1-    Use “Time Monitoring Worksheet” to write down what you did each hour of the day, starting at 5 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. Even if you do not get up until 10 a.m., you still need to record 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. as “sleep.”

2-    Do not overdo the recording; record the primary activity for the hour. At most, record two activities per hour.

Part 2: Reflection

On day four, review your completed Time Monitoring Worksheet in order to take a serious look at how you use your time each day.

Write a 250-500-word reflection on how you manage your time. Include the following in your reflection:

1- What are some things you can do more efficiently?

2- What are the main items/tasks that take up most of your time?

3- Do you see areas in your daily routine where you can make adjustments to become more productive?

4- Do you have any “black holes” that unnecessarily suck up a lot of your time?

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.
