Skills for Success: Time Management Tips

 Former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden wisely said, "If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

One of the biggest barriers to achieving important life goals is poor time management.  All of us have at least a little tendency to say, "I can do that later" only to find either that "later" never comes, or that "later" does not give us enough time to do something well.  

Developing new time management habits is a lot like dieting--it is a sheer act of the will.  But committing to even small changes in how you use your time can make a huge difference in your level of success.  AND it can save money too! (Who wants to pay to take a course a second time???)

For some tips on things you can begin to do to change your time management habits, check out this handout!
