Plan your time = Plan your success

One of the natural flaws in human time management is that we like to spend a lot of time doing what we enjoy and very little time doing what we don't enjoy. For example, you might have to study for accounting and geography. Let us say that you love accounting, and hate geography. It is likely that in a 2 hour study session you will spend 2 hours studying accounting and you probably won't get to geography at all simply because you don't like it. A way around this is to schedule your time and stick to your schedule. Gianni Versace says that he only ever has 8 projects on the go at once, and he only spends 1 hour on each one per day. When his hour is up, no matter how much he has or hasn't achieved, he will stop and move onto the next one. This means that all his projects get a fair go and none of them get neglected. Remember, you won't get good results by doing really well in one subject you have to do well in most of them.

Developing a weekly plan can really help you to schedule you time and give you a chance at doing well in all of your subjects.
