    Kings Lake University conducted counseling sessions to help students manage time


    Kings Lake University (KLU) conducted a short counseling session on time management with the aim of helping students to address the problems impeding their academic progress, e.g., procrastination, time mismanagement, competing priorities (academic and social) and related issues.

    Getting the most out of a 24-hour day is a constant challenge in our busy world: a bottomless inbox, tons of email, millions of meetings. Too much to do and not enough time to do it is a common problem many people students face during their studies. The Time Management Counseling session explained fundamentals of time management: understanding the value of time, using proven ways to get the most out of a day, balancing studies, work and home, eliminating time wasters, conquering procrastination, and much more.
    At KLU any individual who is intellectually curious and enjoys a diversity of academic pursuits and extracurricular interests is welcome; but time management is a must skill for them to master. In the session experts from Kings Lake University devised and discussed such strategies that have proven to be successful for the alumni of KLU in the past, strategies that help participants identify the factors that prevent them from effectively managing their time were discussed. Techniques were introduced for determining what is important and what is not and tools for keeping track.

    Students were taught about how to manage time productively, by using simple techniques such as staying on time, properly using a calendar, keeping track with the to-do lists, and more. Students were also encouraged to devise SMART objectives for peak performance. Delegating and setting realistic, manageable educational goals are critical skills for the success of students at Kings Lake University.
