It is important to learn time management skills to help you reach your goals. Assuming you've spent time getting to know yourself and identifying a goal, such as graduating from high school or applying to a college, keep a calendar and mark down deadlines for reaching objectives that will lead to your goal. For example, if your goal is to get at least a B on a final exam, make the objectives (steps toward goals) review of the different chapters or units you have been learning and put in your schedule dedicated study time for each one. Then stick to your schedule. Time management skills help you spend time where it is most important to you, rather than just on what comes up and seems urgent at the moment. Another thing about reaching goals is that it is important to re-evaluate them from time to time. Is my goal realistic? Is it something I still want? Do I have new experiences or information that are causing me to reconsider and make a new goal?
