Time Monitoring Communications Coursework

Details: This Communications Coursework will help you develop an important skill for college and everyday life – time management. For this Communications Coursework, you will keep an informal time log in which you note all your activities for 3 days, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Review your activities to identify times when you were not productive. You should use this information for planning ways to make better use of your time. Part 1: Monitor your time in hourly increments. Use the Time Monitoring Worksheet to write down what you did each hour of the day, starting at 5 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. Even if you do not get up until 10 a.m., you still need to record 5 a.m. – 9 a.m. as “sleep.” Do not overdo the recording; record the primary activity for the hour. At most, record two activities per hour. Part 2: Reflection On Day 4, review your completed Time Monitoring Worksheet and reflect on how you used your time each day. Write a 250–300 word reflection on how you managed your time. Include the following in your reflection: What are some things you could do more efficiently? What were the main items/tasks that took up most of your time? Do you see areas in your daily routine where you can make adjustments to become more productive? Do you have any “black holes” that unnecessarily take up much of your time?
