Let's Talk Time Management.

Recommended Posts

Time. It is a never ending continuation of the passing of life. Sometimes we wish it would go faster, at others we wish it would stop completely. Personally? I just wish we had more of it.

As many of you may know, I am technically on a leave of abscence from these forums (going well, right?). I made the decision not too long ago that I needed to focus more on the other things going on in my life. My education, my YouTube Channel, my life outside of the internet. I failed out of my first year of college because I didn't put the effort in and basically spent too much time doing something I shouldn't... I was on CoDz. Now, I have sacrificed the one thing I used to love interacting with more than anything in order to get the rest of my life in check. I'm doing well at college, my YouTube channel is growing (finally XD).

However... Can I say I am truly happy? Honestly? Well... No. I can't. I miss CoDz. I want to be back on the forums on a daily basis posting theories and discussions and everything. So what can I do? How can I find the time?

Well, this leads into my discussion for this thread. Time. How do we combat the issue that thwarts us all; running out of it. Well CoDz, today I am here to give you all a lesson in time management. So, first, you need to think priorities. What is the most important thing in your life? Is there a specific job you wish to aspire to? Perhaps you wish to be a doctor? Or an astrophysicist? Or a chef? Or perhaps a writer? Undoubtedly, if you have a specific job that you are determined to get, then surely education needs to take priority? Well, not necessarily. If you enjoy education and learning and studying makes you happy then by all means dedicate the majority of your time to it. However if, like me, you find that you cannot enjoy education most of the time and you need some time to do things you enjoy, then you need to do those things. You need to find the perfect balance between fun and work. Make yourself a schedule. This is something I have personally done and it has thoroughly helped me.

I now attend college 9-6 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and work on assignments at home 3-5 on Mondays and Fridays. From 10-3 on Mondays and Fridays I spend my time working on my YouTube channel. This includes scripting, recording, uploading, replying to comments, everything. Those 5 hours twice a week are my alotted YouTube time. From 6-12 Mondays to Thursdays, that's my personal time. I game, I write, or I catch up on any work I haven't completed yet. Fridays 5-10 I spend with my girlfriend, as well as all day Sundays. On Saturdays I work my job so I can earn money to fund everything in my life.

I would strongly recommend that any of you looking to work hard on your education to something similar. My personal schedule is what works for me. It may or may not apply to you too but only you can work out what is the best for you. I, unfortunately, have very little time for socialising and browing the internet anymore, but I hope you guys will still have time for CoDz now that Old Jolteon doesn't.

Time management is key if you want to aquire success. You need to find a balance. You simply cannot spend your entire life working because it will make you crazy and unhappy; what is the point of working so much if it doesn't make you happy? But on the flipside, you need to make sure you work enough. You cannot waste your life away messing around on the internet and playing computer games.

Make a goal. Work for it. Become awesome people. Thank you.

I think the best way to manage time is to set out what you want done for the day. If you want to study for a test, get it done. If you need homework completed, do it. After the things that are a requirement on your list are done, then you can create free time that you can spend on CoDz or playing games.

This.

That's how I manage my time.

Although it does not really work out sometimes. :lol:

Nice post, Jolteon! :3

I don't find a need for time management. I just go with the flow, and do what I feel like doing first. Thus homework ends up being done at 10 PM because I have no motivation anytime beforehand.

Clan":90cmzp8r]Nice post, does this reflect your schedule now? :)

The only change is evenings are spent more often than not Skyping with other Forum friends; especially with those involved with the YouTube channel ;)
