Academic Success Through Time Management

Suppose that you had a bank that credited your account each day with more than $80,000. The money is yours, but you cannot carry over any balance or keep any cash through the next day. You must draw out and use every cent each day or lose it! What would you do with such a resource?

Everybody has such an account, it is called time. There are 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds in each day. There are no extensions or overdrafts, and anyone who fails to make use of the time deposit loses it. It is up to you to determine how to make use of this precious commodity. Planning and acting to get the best out of your resource, which is available only once, is called time management. This brochure will assist you in learning to make wise and productive time investments in order to be a successful student.
