I just read a great post on the Law School Academic Support blog, about using “windfall” time – little chunks of time that you weren’t expecting to have, that pop up sporadically throughout your day and week. So many of my students are feeling the stress of the semester at this point – on top of their classwork, I’m now also expecting them to be outlining and preparing for their exams, and the amount of work seems daunting and unmanageable. Time management, especially making use of ALL your time, is SO IMPORTANT. 20 minutes here, 30 minutes there – it can all add up to a large amount of useful time, so plan it wisely!
Instead of trying to summarize what this blog post said, I’m just going to link to it right here. It contains some great advice. Try some of the suggestions out today!
