    Are you good at managing your time? Do you make timetables? If yes, how do you separate time for different kind of work? If you dont manage time,do you want to?

    I'm not a good time manager and I dont wanna manage my time. I know managimg time is such a good habit and it is very nice to do work but it is just not in me. I'm rather waste my time and not manave time than to be bounded in a given time by us and being unable to extent things a little. Bit it is just my opinion, what are yours? Tell em here!

    I am actually very good at managing my time effectively...it is perhaps one of the few things I AM good at. One of the few valuable life skills I learned at University, too. When you have to juggle multiple deadlines for essays and a dissertation around lectures and seminars, you need to learn to manage your time properly...or learn how to pull all-nighters. I chose the less painful route. I don't find it particularly difficult to plan things out, although I don't make timetables or anything. I just get into the habit of doing things I need to do and structure everything else around those.

    I tend to procrastinate a lot, but when it comes to getting up on time I can do it.

    Time management is something I am very disciplined and intentional about. I used to have a planner, to record my daily activities down to the minute - and the only reason I say 'used to' is because I forgot to buy a planner for this year. Silly me, eh?
    But I am at the very least good at remembering what needs to be done when. I bind myself to my schedule thoroughly, and I don't deviate from it much. I know what needs to be done, and I accomplish it.

    I'm not great at it, but I've certainly gotten better at it. I've learned how to properly balance out the time I should do work and the time I can have fun and have quality time. Granted, my impulses to do other things can make it difficult for me to execute the things I have to do, but I've certainly improved in it!

    I'm horrible at this, even though I know what I should do in order to manage my time well. *headdesk*

    When I do manage my time, I love it! I get things done and I'm so happy and for once I'm not tired and stressed and usually I have time to do things I want. In fact, once I've done everything I need to do, I'm less likely to click tabs for hours and more likely to do something I really want to do (like sit with a bowl of ice cream and watch Star Trek, which ironically is part of my to-do list since I'm still not done with TNG).

    Unfortunately, I do this, like, once a month at best ;u; I just looove procrastinating. And basically, ever since mid-December I've gotten into this slump where I just don't want to focus on schoolwork or do anything about school outside of school (save that freaking children's book project). I've just been really really tired and I haven't gathered up the willpower to get myself in gear and get stuff done. I think once I do, I'll be a lot happier.

    And I'm rambling. Yeah.

    Short answer: I rarely manage my time, though it always turns out good when I do. I'm a natural procrastinator but also a really big perfectionist, which is a terrible combo. I wish I managed my time more but I don't know if I have the willpower to keep it up.

    I've been the same way, Owl. I just look at my homework for a minute or so before turning away to do something else. Sure, my mad-dash to get my stuff done at the very end gets most of the stuff in on time, it's a horrible way to live and a poor example as a student. But this weird slump just won't go away... T_T

    I am very effective at managing my time. I have a uniform schedule built for each day that I use and manipulate depending on what needs to get done and how long things take. Because I have time set aside each day for HW even when I don't have HW, I do HW on the day its assigned. I don't ever use a planner, everything that needs to get done, I remember.

    Lately, I haven't been following my schedule as religiously as I would like. Due to continuous headaches that I get, (I'm a migraine sufferer this is normal) I tend to deviate from my schedule and prefer to do nothing at all. I especially don't like how my headaches eat away at my HW time.

    I'm kinda all over the place with my time. In this sense, I suppose I'm not very good at my time management.

    Usually when I intend to do something, or have my mindset fixed on a set schedule for a particular day, I'll try to get it done as much as I can, but my bad habit of being a hard procrastinator gets in the way of this more often than I would like it to.

    If I'm really determined to get something done though, I'll set a strict schedule to do it.

    I opened this tab at least a week ago and it's just been sitting in my browser for that long while I just mean to get around to it. It's similar with a lot of things that aren't hard-scheduled, like work and sleep. I've been meaning to "get around" to a lot of things lately, but if it doesn't have a set schedule or deadline (or sometimes if it does) I just never decide that now is the time to do it. Even now I should re-applying for school, but instead I'm goofing off here and watching Rick and Morty on split screen. It's kind of a problem.

    It honestly varies for me depending on how I'm feeling and general mood but overall I'm so-so at it, not the worse but I'm certainly no master at it either.

    Haha, I've been lacking in the time management department lately. My art/gfx has taken a hit as I've totally neglected that. Oops.

    Truth be told, so has mine, though it isn't because of any slacking on time management - rather it's because I have so many other priorities to attend to (plus the full-time job) that I don't even have that much spare time to devote to a banner or two.
    It sometimes frustrates me that this is the case, but c'est la vie.

    Time management? What is that? Can you eat it?

    In all seriousness, I'm horrible with time managing. Just today I told myself "im gonna draw!" but I didn't in the end and I wasted my time on tumblr... haha.

    I want to get better with this stuff, but it's so hard to! Maybe one day I'll know the secrets to using time well...

    I try to manage my time, but I'm certainly not the best at it. I have an agenda I use regularly and I set reminders on my phone. I try to move things around to give me more wiggle room to relax, but my sleep schedule and the time I could use for art have been taken up by 7 classes this semester T_T I usually try to get things done they day they are given to me, but sometimes I end up falling behind.
