What did you learn about how you actually use time compared to how you planned to use your time?

To successfully complete your assignment, you should have completed the following tasks: From the textbook, Keys to effective learning: Study skills and habits for success, read: Time and money: Managing important resources Setting and reaching goals: Using values, stress management, and teamwork Review materials under the topic of “Dealing with Stress” Review materials under the topic of “Time Management” Your education is definitely a priority, as is your job. Family, friends, hobbies, and religion are also priorities for many people. However, having many competing priorities can be stressful. To tackle this, mapping out deadlines, blocking out time that is “non-negotiable” such as that spent at work, and blocking out time for study and other responsibilities, and then creating a visual reference—a calendar—would be well worth your effort. In this assignment, you will develop a calendar to highlight key dates, deadlines, and nonnegotiable blocks of time—your work and coursework schedule. For inclusion in your calendar, consider the following activities and appointments: Nonnegotiable dates, such as when your rent or mortgage is due Healthcare appointments Pressing deadlines for work projects Deadlines for class assignments Deadlines for your FAFSA application, if you need financial aid. Refer to Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). (2010). Retrieved from http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ Dates connected with your income such as paydays at work Family events and appointments Time for sleep, personal hygiene, and relaxation It may take some revisions to come up with the calendar that works best for you, but once completed, it becomes an effective time management tool. In turn, this becomes a vital part of your learning plan. This assignment has two parts. Complete both parts. Part I: Develop Calendar for Four Days The first step in time management is to find out how you actually use your time. This Time Management exercise will help you discover exactly that. Here’s how the Time Management exercise works. You will track your time for four days using this Microsoft Word template. You will plan each day in advance based on how you think it will turn out. Then you will track what actually happens in your calendar. Using your notes, itemize your calendar with the events from the four-day period that you were tracking. Please make sure to appropriately label each item. Save this calendar as LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part1.doc. Part II: Review and Reflection Refer to the calendar that you completed in Part I. If you have not yet completed this exercise, please do so before continuing with the questions below. What did you learn about how you actually use time compared to how you planned to use your time? Did you find places where you tend to ineffectively or inefficiently use your time? Did you find some pockets of time that you could use for high priority tasks? What can you do to improve the way you manage your daily tasks? How do you plan to manage your schoolwork along with your other key priorities? After a few days, review the calendar and the goals you developed in Part I of this assignment and respond to the following questions: Were your daily goals realistic considering the amount of time you gave yourself to fulfill them? Explain your response. If you have revised your initial goals after your review, explain why you think this revision is necessary and how your plans have changed as a result. If you have not revised your goals, consider what factors you may have failed to identify in your initial goal setting activity. Summarize your review in a one- to two-page paper in MS Word format and save it as LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part2.doc. By the due date assigned, submit both documents—your calendar (LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part1.doc) and your reflection and review (LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2_Part2.doc)—to the Submissions Area.

Frequently asked questions
Is your service confidential?

When you place an order with our company, we ask you to provide us with such personal information as your name, phone number, and email address. We need this data to keep you updated on the important things related to your order or account.

Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.

Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?

You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.

Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?

No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.

 

When will my custom paper be done?

While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.

Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.

Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.

I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?

Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
