Developing your skills to do your homework quicker

Do you envy your classmates who seem to have time for everything from studies to sports, to chilling out with friends? How do they do it? They have mastered the art of time management, and of doing tasks quicker than the average student. Doing anything quicker has the advantage of saving your time, but it takes patience and practice to do so. It is the same with homework assignments. You will need to patiently develop the skills and strategize to be quicker.

Here are a few suggestions that will help you develop your skills:

Manage yourself around time: Time management is a misnomer. You cannot manage time. It will pass on its own pace as usual. What you can do is manage yourself around time. Decide on a schedule and stick to it. Instead of allocating strict hours, try racing against time by clocking your work. For example, if you do your homework from six to eight in the evening, schedule 15 minutes for each task and time your progress as you work.

Prioritize: There are two ways of doing this. You can either do the easy parts first and spend more time on relatively harder tasks later, or do the hard tasks first to get them out of the way. Try both to see what suits you better. The goal is to make the cumulative time shorter than the day before.

Do not procrastinate: the easiest way to waste time is to be lazy and leave things for later. Make it a habit to do your homework as soon as possible. The added stress of lost time actually slows you down. To avoid procrastination, reward yourself each time you do things as soon as they come to mind. Punish yourself with a disliked chore (e.g. ironing clothes) whenever you are lazy. Be a strict boss.

Practice, practice, and practice: spend some time each week, practicing your skills. Write a story or an essay to improve mind-body coordination. Solve math problems for “fun” to train your mind to spot-solve problems.

Plan the week: Instead of making a daily schedule, make a weekly one. You are more likely to adhere to something less mechanical than a timetable that decides your every move.

You will have to be gentle with yourself. That does not mean that you become lax about it. Start with time management and clocking yourself, but do not judge yourself too harshly in the first few weeks. You will succeed in your quest of speed only if you are persistent.
