IIT JEE preparation tips : Master the Time Management
“Lack of time” is one of the big problems encountered by many people at this time. Everyone has their own wishes and desires, but it seems there is no time for it! In this article I am going to talk about this important IIT JEE preparation tips.
Most students wish and desire is to spend most of their time with their family, traveling, etc., every child wish and desire is to spend most of their time playing. But let me tell you, every JEE candidates need a great time to learn and study hard. They can not visit family functions or fun holidays. But still they run out of time. No one has time while preparing for JEE!!!
I also faced this problem many times, but as the time goes on I found some principles that can help everyone to become a master of their own time and, therefore, I realize all the productive tasks we are aiming for in the 24 hours that God has given to each of us. Unfortunately I spent most of my drop year trying to find the balance between Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I never had this problem before even when I was in college because my life was reduced to the size of peanuts. The real world is different and requires much more sophisticated planning in order to succeed in every way.
So, coming to the stage of solving this problem, here, I will talk about some principles (based on my own life experiences) that helped me overcome this problem faced by millions of people. First, let’s focus on the word “why” part. This IIT JEE preparation tips will help you solve probably more than half of the problem. You need to ask yourself this question, “Where’s my time going to?” I can give you the guarantee, You will surely find the right answer to this question.
You may be reluctant to acknowledge the reasons, but you know them. Above all, they make a list
- Social media
- Unproductive entertainment like (television, games)
- Random thoughts (which lead to delays)
- Not prioritizing your tasks
- Spend too much time socializing with different people.
- Chatting and talking too much to your friends/colleagues.
- Sleeping too much/too less
- Doing things randomly.
- Spending time being sad, happy or jealous.
Non-productive disturbances are okay within limits. They help in recreation for a period of time, but after some time they result in bad health, lost productivity and the guilt of lost time.
I recently started to read books for free time (not an academic book). But I do this in a concentrated method and less than an hour a day. It’s not a waste of time, because I spend a little time and it leads to good fun.
This becomes problematic when you start tracking too many hobbies/television series. It’s good to be a cricket fan or a Harry Potter fan. But it is not a good thing to be a fan of GOT, football, Marvel, dance, cricket, F.R.E.N.D.S., music, all at the same time and spend too much time on them.
Limit your TV/entertainment in order to schedule and fixed daily time. This way you can devote more time to your hobby and your work/study.
Accidental thinking and emotional devastation is another cause of great concern for many. I spend a lot of time thinking about other people’s opinions about myself. Some people may be having some personal problems so it can cause them to think too much.
I use to experience this issue some time. I spent the most time talking to positive and motivating people and avoiding negative people. If you are facing some personal problems, sharing them with your loved one is the best way to get rid of it. You can share them with your parents/friends/ for some counseling and tips. This will really help you.
Now I hope that most “useless” and preventable factors have disappeared. What you need are good planning and a good schedule. You have to make a very tight schedule. You must be aware of your time. Until you are honest and conscientious to optimize your time and earn an extra hour, you will not be able to accomplish it.
So let’s get into the main point and discuss having a good schedule. The first thing you need to do is get up early and sleep early for at least 7 hours. During my drop year in 2004 IIT JEE, I went into that enchanted circle of bad sleep and delays. Sometimes I went to bed no earlier than 2 am in the morning, and my average sleep was probably less than 6 hours.
Then I changed that habit and made me more productive. I get up at 7 am and go to bed around 12 at night (or at least try it). I sleep more than 7 hour. It made me much more energetic and I hardly feel a lack of energy at the end of the day. I get very good sleep at night.
Now, keep some time for things that are your hobby. It will help you to relax and ensure greater productivity.
Make a rough draft of all the activities you think you can do during the day, including your studying hours. Write it very well somewhere and follow it. Give yourself time to do a thing. For example, you can say that 8 am.-2.00 pm -> coaching. 2:30 pm -4:30 pm-> break time / reading / sleeping, etc.
You can keep Sunday to revise what you learned during the week. Make sure to have a day left after putting down all your commitments so that you do not end up not fulfilling your goals for a week.
