I was working with me. Consequently, this incubated

I have suffered
a
lot
because
I
had a
serious issue with time management. This resulted
in
procrastination
and
accumulating
tasks
until
the last minute.
Therefore,
I
had
very
low
grades, and since
I
could
not
keep
up
with
my
social
life and
the college’s
requirements,
I
constantly
stayed
awake
to
finish
my
assignments
that
should
have
been
done
before.
I
will
be
explaining
the
importance
of
time
management
and
how
it
can
be
improved
according
to
Kolb’s
Theory. Therefore, this reflective journal was written in
hope of identifying my past errors and finding effective solutions to solve my
problems. I feel that time management is an essential skill to acquire to
become more effective in achieving my goals.Time management
has
been
a
serious
issue
for
me in
my experience during my
university
study
period.
I
was
terrible
in
prioritising
tasks
since I
had
no
regular
routine.
This
is
because
I
stayed
up
all
night
long
to
study
for
my
upcoming
exams
and
submit
my
coursework
on
time.
Yet,
I
still wouldn’t
finish
the
task
required
because
I
used
to
rush
my
coursework.
Therefore,
this
highly
influenced
my
grades
since
my
body
was
deprived
of
sleep
so
I
couldn’t
concentrate
nor
learn
efficiently.
Moreover,
due
to
the
reasons
mentioned
above
I
have
never
been
able
to
attend
any
of
my
lectures
on
time.
I
always
missed
my
morning
lectures
which
is
another
reason
for
the
fall
of
my
grades.
Consequently,
I
was
forced
to
remain
active
during
the
night
to
compensate
the
material
I
missed.

Aside from that, the
obstacles
I
faced
made
me
frustrated.
I
was
arriving
late
to
my
lectures
which
gave my professors a bad idea of my commitment to the course.
Furthermore,
the
warnings
I
was
taking
from
the
college
demotivated
me. Failure
is
the
worst
feeling
ever.
I
felt
frustrated
and
miserable,
as
nothing
was
working
with
me.
Consequently,
this
incubated
me
in
a
corner
where
I
couldn’t
do
anything.
Moreover, when
I
sat
alone,
I
took
another
look
at
my
actions
and
rebuked
myself
for
my
recklessness.
This
incident
forced
me
to
ponder
and
re-evaluate
my
behaviour
which does not meet
the
expectations
of
the
college
I
am
attending.

Based on the above, I decided to get
a
planner
in order to map out all my required task and the estimated time needed to complete
each. I
am
planning
to
raise
my
grades
from
an
F
to at
least a C within the
end
of
the
term.
I realise that this is a difficult
task, yet it is not impossible. I
also
plan on taking
an
appointment
with
my
college
counsellor
to
help
me
organize
a
realistic
schedule
that
suits
my
lifestyle
and
achieve
my
target,
since
luckily I
can benefit
from
various
sporting
options
that
my
college
offers
to
students.
I
can
therefore utilize these
options
to
move
closer
to
my
goals.

To rid
myself
out
of
this
issue,
I
decided to take specific steps to
make this realistic. First, I
am
intending
to
read
articles
regarding
the
topic
of
time
management,
especially ones written by other students, as I am sure I am not the only one
suffering from this problem. Also,
I
feel
that
an
electronic
diary
would
change
my
whole
life
since
the
online
calendar
would
be
synchronized
on
my
phone.
It
will remind
me
in advance of my upcoming deadlines
plus setting up constant alarms for smaller goals, such as for example,
breaking down the word count limit. Furthermore,
since
I
am
failing
most
of
my
subjects,
I needed to set realistic dates to revise and restudy certain subjects. For
example, I
will
be
studying
the
mechanics
chapter
and
finish
it
by
next
Monday
(the
end
of
the
week).
Then,
I
am
aiming
to
finish
the
calculus
chapter
on
the
20th
of
November.
moreover,
I
will
devote
2 hours
per
day
for
the
physics
and
math
chapter. To be able to submit
my
History
Assignment,
I
will
wake
up
each
day
at
6 A.M
instead
of
8 A.M
to
work
on
it
while guaranteeing that I get a decent amount of sleep.
These
are the steps that I plan on taking in order to achieve my goals after
consulting with my peers who seem to have improved after applying the above.

While working on this reflective
journal, I have realised that I need to set ambitious goals that are also
realistic. Following the advice of articles
that I have read online worked
quite
with
me.
However,
the
thing
that
altered
my
pathway,
was
getting
a
diary.
Fortunately,
the
schedule
worked
and
I
was
capable
to
raise my
grades,
submit
assignments
on
time,
and going to
lectures
on
time.
Most
importantly,
the best consequence has been that I
mastered
the
difference
between
what’s
important
for
me, which will not only help me succeed as a student, but
also in my future career.
