Time Management Tools
First, tell us which of these time management tips you find useful. Think about your life in general, not just Wilmette Institute courses.
To-Do or Not To-Do?
I make and use to-do lists all the time
I don't use to-do lists (tell us why not under "other")
I sometimes make lists, but never for my courses
I prioritize my daily activities on a regular basis.
I don't prioritize, I just start at the top of my list and make my way through it.
I have a general idea which tasks are more important to me, but I don't put it in writing.
It's hard to keep my priorities straight because they change so often depending on my family's needs and/or my work obligations.
I sleep 7 or more hours per night on average
I get 5-7 hours of sleep most nights
I sleep less than 5 hours on many nights
I do regular physical exercise (walking, swimming jogging, biking, going to the gym, anything physical)
My job requires manual labor; I don't need more physical exercise.
I exercise now and then, but not reguarly.
I am sick, elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to do physical exercise.
I don't exercise much.
Multitasking vs Concentrating
I generally concentrate completely on one task at a time.
I often am working on two or more different things at once.
When I have a job that is difficult, I will turn off all distractions but mostly I can juggle two or three tasks at a time.
I try to concentrate, but am usually easily distracted.
I use a timer to make sure I don't spend too much time on one thing.
I practice meditation on a regular basis (any form of meditation counts)
I don't really meditate but I do regularly take time for prayer/quiet time with no distractions.
I wish I had time to be quiet and relax!
Tools for time management
I use a time management tool (Please describe it in "Other")
I don't use time management tools.
