This activity allows you to analyze how you currently manage your time and to project how you will manage your time once you begin your career. 1. As you go through an “average” work day, take notes on what you do and how long it takes. a. For example, “Get ready for work: 7:30am to 8:15am. Eat breakfast: 8:15am to 8:30am.

Review your notes from class and Chapter 17 in Skills for Living a Rich Life. Using the tips and advice, highlight any activities in your schedule that could be cut or condensed using the MS Word highlighter tool. a. For example, did you watch TV? Did you respond to non-work emails? Did you talk/text with a friend on your phone? Could you eat a bagel on your way to work rather than eating a bowl of cereal at home? 4. Create an identical MS Word document titled, “A Day In the Future Life of .” Assuming an average work day—9am to 6pm with an hour lunch break—fill out the rest of the table. Start with things you must do, then move on to things you love to do, and finally insert things you like to do.
