Principles of Effective Time Management for Balance, Well-being, and Success (Princeton University)

“The time management principles listed are derived from research on time management, motivation theory and much experience working with university students. Think of time management techniques as tools to help you do what you value the most. Make these tools into an expression of your values—what’s most important to you—not just a schedule to get more stuff done. Try to keep these principles in mind as you schedule and calendar your time, and when making the moment-to‐moment decisions that are crucial to effective time management for balance and well-being.”

Time Management Tips (Purdue University Global)

 “Time is a finite resource. Balancing responsibilities at your job, home, and school is not easy. No matter what, you’re always left with the same 24 hours in a day to check items off to-do lists, spend time with family and friends, and unwind. By planning ahead and using your time wisely, you’ll be able to accomplish more and enjoy added free time.”

The Most Productive Way to Schedule Your Day (Syracuse University)

“The ongoing global pandemic has led many companies to rely on remote work for the foreseeable future. The result has become a major workforce shift that—depending on the employer—allows for more flexibility in a person’s schedule, including what hours they work, when they take breaks and what else they can accomplish during the workday while at home.”

“While some employers may be resistant to remote work because of minimal supervision, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that 37% of jobs can be performed entirely from home.External link:open_in_new This data may actually be an opportunity for employees to more effectively structure a work-life balance that makes sense for their personal and professional lives.”
