Time management is key for any task we have to do. During your years at college, you will need to perfect your time management skills in order to stay up to date in all of your classes. Sometimes it is hard to know what to spend more time on and how to avoid distractions. Many of us procrastinate until the last minute. We spend hours scrolling through social media, watching TV shows, listening to podcasts, or reading books/magazines/articles on topics unrelated to our classes. This is honestly very normal. It seems our generation(s) has(have) a shorter attention span and we are easily distracted.
However, as we begin a new semester–a new course or start a new job–it is necessary to learn how to manage our time properly. Luckily, we live in the era of technology and we have found ourselves relying on it for most of the things we do, there are plenty of apps you can download on your phone or your laptop to help you with this. One simple Google search will display at least 50 different apps. For this reason, I dug a little deeper and narrowed it down to three apps I believe you should be using if you struggle with time management: RescueTime, Remember the Milk, and MyLifeOrganized.
RescueTime is the app that encourages you to get more from your day without working more. It allows you to track your time and block off any digital distractions you may have. There are six very relevant tools that make this a great time management app.
Remember the Milk is also known as the smart to-do app for busy people. This app bases its work in four relevant actions that will allow you to get your tasks done, achieve your goals, and meet your deadlines.
MyLifeOrganized’s brand lemma is “The Most Flexible Task Management Tool" and that is completely true with the different resources the app offers. They guarantee your time management skills improve with six extremely relevant features.
These apps are a few resources and tools you can use to improve your time management skills. The best thing to do is make a habit out of creating to-do lists, keeping track of the time you spend on each activity–even the ones that push you to procrastinate–, and always write down your deadlines. When you create a good working cycle for yourself, you will be able to manage your time properly. In the meantime, technology will help you manage time better.
