Time management begins to take on a somewhat mythical quality with learners at university. There never seems to be enough time and what there is seems to become unmanageable quickly! Distance learners sometimes find themselves putting off their readings, then assignments and before they know it – the final exam is scheduled and they are not ready to write. This scenario may lead to disappointment (at the very least) or course failure. You will likely want to avoid this by developing some strategies early – which will help you stay on track.
The reality is that time evaporates, so make the most of it while you have it and be realistic.
Following are some resources which may serve as useful reminders about planning and managing your life so that you have some time to enjoy.
