As we all know, following your daily time table is the most difficult thing. 95% of students are not able to follow their daily time table. Consequently even they waste the whole day in trying to use their 100% time.
So we devised a solution that hopefully will work for you.
Instead of following a time-table plan, a task-table.
Time Table – A schedule which states what is to be done at what time in a day.
Task Table – A schedule which states what is to be done in a day.
The problem with a time table is exactly what your concern is – it is difficult to stick to it.
On the other hand, if you just know what all is to be done in a day and how much time each activity will take, you will be able to complete it much better.
Things your task-table should cover:
Main task – The main target for the day (Like covering a subject, a topic)
Details – Write specific details of what all you need to do pertaining to the main task (Read Chapter 2, Solve questions 1–30 etc).
Time per task- Write the time required to complete each task. (30 minutes)
Total time required – Add up the time of each task to calculate total time required (5 hours in the given case).
Day’s analysis – Note when you can start studying and till when (6:30 pm to 1:30 am).
Total time available – Calculate the time available using day’s analysis (7 hours in the given case).
Free time – Deduct total time required from total time available (2 hours in the given case).
Keep cutting the tasks as soon as they get done – You can make task cards like write a work on a single small card. The time may not be mentioned there in this way; you create 5 to 7 task cards separately and once your one task is completed destroy the card corresponding to that task.
Ergo, these will provide you motivation.That is how a task table works. Trust me, it works better than a time table!
