Reasonable goals key to good time management skills

Time is one’s most valuable asset, yet people tend to waste it, kill it and spend it rather than invest it, a NE history instructor told students March 26.

Andrew Hollinger presented Time Management emphasizing how to use time more efficiently.

“We can no more afford to spend major time on minor things than we can to spend minor time on major things,” he said.

Time is elusive, Hollinger said. It often slips away without notice, and it is one thing people can never have again, he said. Once spent, it is never recoverable.

“We try to multipurpose, and it doesn’t work,” he said. “Set and understand reasonable and optimistic goals.”

Students should plan overall goals, then weekly steps to get the goal, Hollinger said. He advised keeping it reasonable, allowing enough time to start the goal and transitions to take place.

“Experiment to find out what works out to be effective for each time category,” he said. “Use your plan and time management system as a learning organism.”
