3 Time Management Tips
Jean Boyd is Arizona State University's Senior Associate Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Development. In this capacity he leads Sun Devil Athletics' commitment to graduating and preparing student-athletes to become high achievers in life. He also coordinates student-athlete well-being programs and leads the department's diversity and inclusion efforts.
In this clip, Boyd shares tips to help busy student-athletes stay organized:
- Set aside time to be organized. Student-athletes have busy lives, and setting aside time to get organized is critical for successful time management.
- Identify time at the beginning of the week to lay out what you have coming up. This helps you prioritize what's most important.
- Differentiate between urgent and important. He uses the example of a paper due tomorrow and an exam in two weeks. The exam is important, but the paper is urgent. Understanding the difference helps you prioritize your efforts.
