Unit 2 – Time Management Exercise: Master Schedule

Read the Chapter on Time Management, and pay special attention to Planning a Master Schedule (p. 37) along with Putting Your Master Schedule into Practice (p. 39).

This exercise will be submitted next week as well as generate discussion in the class.

  1. Open the Time Management Exercise file; You will use this as your template for completing the assignment.
  2. Start to plan out your schedule for next week and think about what you spend your time doing, from sleeping to eating, working to playing, etc.
  3. On the Weekly Schedule tab you will schedule NEXT WEEK by charting specific activities during each day including times in the “Plan Column”: All 24 hours of your day should be accounted for.

Unit 3

  1. Beginning Monday track your daily activities under the “Actual” column on the Weekly Schedule tab.
  2. At the end of the week:
  • On the Time Management Summary tab, you need to provide an overall picture of your time during a week and 6 items that you have learned from the exercise about how you spend your time.
  • On the Life Priorities tab, you should list the top three priorities in your life.
  • This week, read through the Chapter on Setting Goals, focusing on why and how to set your goals. Read pp. 78-80 “Writing SMART Goals”.

    Here’s the assignment:

    1. Devise a list of 3 short-term and 3 long-term academic and/or professional career goals:

    Include how you plan to achieve each goal
    Include the motivators to achieve each goal
    Include the support system to achieve each goal

    2. After you have settled on your goals, how to achieve each one and your motivators organize your ideas to prepare a slide presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint.

    Include an introductory/cover page
    Include a minimum of 10 slides and a maximum of 12 slides

    You may use images, clip art, charts, graphs, etc., or keep it simple — once again, you won’t be “graded” on how it “looks” (although I do want you to give it your best shot based on your familiarity with PowerPoint going into the assignment). What’s most important is to make your presentation “your own” — in other words, I’m looking for you to prepare a presentation that is informative to you and to your audience. If you’ve never used Microsoft PowerPoint before, you might want to ask a friend or colleague for some help; also, there is a “HELP” feature built into the program that is informative.
