Take Control of Your Time

Part of Postdoc Appreciation Month at UC San Diego

Do you often feel like there's not enough time into accomplish all that you want to do? Do you sometimes feel like your work is taking over your entire life? If you want to get more done without working longer hours and learn about techniques for creating space in your life for all of your interests, join Melanie Nelson, Ph.D. for a workshop that will help you examine your time use patterns, identify your pitfalls, and learn concrete techniques to take control of your time.

This workshop will teach you how to:

  • Diagnose your time management issues: Learn how to use time-tracking to understand what aspects of your time use could be improved.
  • Match tools and strategies to your problems: Learn how to evaluate the plethora of time management tools and techniques available to pick the ones that will be most helpful for you—and then learn how to apply them.
  • Avoid common pitfalls: Learn about common mistakes that derail attempts to improve productivity—and how to avoid them.
