First Year Experience - Modules

Time Management

**Please send all correspondence and questions for this module to your First Year Seminar Instructor**

Step 1:

When creating goals, they should be SMART goals:

Specific - Who, What, Why, When, How?

Measurable - How will I know when my goal is accomplished?

Attainable - Goals should be a slight stretch, but not so far-fetched that you are setting yourself up for failure.

Relevant - Is the goal consistent with your overall purpose?

Timely - Set a specific time frame within which you will accomplish your goals.

Complete the Motivation & Goal Setting Worksheet.

Think about how you are currently spending your time...Are you spending enough time working toward your short- and long-term goals? In step 2 of this module, you will take the "Personal Time Survey" to see how you really are spending your time.

Send the answers to this question, along with your completed worksheet to your TRiO advisor as an email attachment.

Step 2:

Complete the Personal Time Survey.

Are you leaving enough study time in your weekly schedule? Remember that you should be studying at least 2 hours out of class for each hour you spend in class. Are you prioritizing based on your short- and long-term goals?

Please email your completed time survey, along with your reaction to the results, to your First Year Seminar Instructor.
