Managing Time in High School {Using Time Wisley}

Ever find yourself really busy with extra curricular activities, homework, studying for standardized test, etc? Well, here are  a few great tips from Brennan Kruszewski to help you with managing your time in High School. It's best to be able to manage your time now, before you go to college and before you join the work force.
1. Find out what you like, and stick to it. The first impulse of many high school freshmen is to jump right in to every activity that presents itself. This is useful to get involved when you start high school, but ultimately not sustainable in the long run. Take some time to figure out what you really want to do with your high school career. Remember that a strong involvement in one activity can be much more fulfilling than little or no involvement in many. Instead of rushing to many activities all of the time, try instead to focus on what you’re passionate about.

2. Don’t procrastinate. This is the hardest thing for high school students to do. If you get your homework done ahead of time, however, you will have more time in the future to do things that you enjoy. Make homework a first priority and study a little bit every night. Doing so will reduce your need to cram for tests or scramble to get an assignment done minutes before it’s due. Don’t cheat yourself by procrastinating.

3. Make a schedule.This one seems obvious, but few high school students actually make schedules for themselves. Get a weekly planner or use an electronic calendar to map out your week. Seeing things on paper can show you just how hectic your schedule might be, and helps you to mentally prepare for the week ahead, as well as schedule study time.
