Since returning to college, it has made me realize that the ability to manage my time effectively has had a direct impact on my learning experience and my family life. Most of my time was spent on sleeping, social networking and working, which doesn't surprise me. Therefore, it has made me aware of where I need to make changes. In order for me to eliminate my time management problem, I will have to set schedules, which will be based from my goals. This will make me more organized and I will be able to monitor my time effectively.
