Directions: There will be two parts to this portion of the assignment, Part A and Part B. Please complete all sections on this document, as this is what you will be submitting for your entire Topic 1 Assignment (Parts 1 and 2).

In Part A, you begin by keeping an informal time log in which you note all your activities for 3 days, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.(even if your wake-up and bedtime alter from this beginning and end time, please use this time-frame and just place what you are doing during the hours allocated).You will use this information for planning ways to make better use of your time.

In Part B, you will briefly analyze the results from your time log to determine the changes you need to make to your time schedule and how you will manage those changes. After analyzing your data, you will construct areflective 200-250-word summary of your time-monitoring analysis and identify two main discoveries you found; whether this was positive or negative discovery. You may also wish to consider the information from chapter 4 of the textbook as you complete your reflection, as you may wish to reference to help support your findings.

Note: This portion of the assignment will also help in completing the S.M.A.R.T Goals that will come in Week/Topic 5.

Part A: Time Monitoring Activity/Worksheet

In completing the Time Monitoring, you will need to fill out the Time Monitoring Worksheet found below the following directions. *You may also wish to print one to keep for easier record keeping as you track your time, and then complete the chart here to submit with your assignment.

1) Monitor your time in hourly increments:

a) Carry your Time Monitoring Worksheet with you whenever you are awake.

b) Each hour of the day, starting at 5:00 a.m. and ending at 11:00 p.m., write down what you did during that hour. If you do not get up until 10 a.m., do you record 5:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m.? Yes, you will just note that you were “sleeping” during those hours.

c) Do not overdo the recording; record the primary activity for the hour.

2) On Day 4, when you have 3 days of time monitored, it is time to analyze your time use. You will need to have your Time Monitoring Worksheet available, as you will need this to review and reflect what you have noted, as well as something to take notes with when analyzing your data.

3) New college students usually find that most time management issues, fall into three main categories, so this is where you will start the analysis. Brainstorm and organize your data into the areas noted below, and add area(s) where you see necessary. Here are the three main areas students have mentioned when reviewing their data and reasoning:

· Making poor judgments about using their time wisely; procrastination would fall under this area or not prioritizing events or tasks wisely.

· When stressed, becoming immobilized or shutting down mentally and/or physically.

· Giving less than their best efforts when rushed and overwhelmed or when they feel like quitting.

4) Once you have fully analyzed your data, you will be ready to begin Part B, writing your reflective summary.
