TIME WASTING vs TIME MANAGEMENT...

 STUDENT ??

Ask yourself : "What's your profession?"
If you answered: "Student", then you have to follow this........

Q1:  What is your core business?
Ans: To study.

Q2:  How many hours do you study per day?
Ans: Apart from attending classes and other curricular activities, I say...1 hour. Sometimes, I don't have the time to study...

Q3:  Is that enough?
Ans: Probably not.

Q4:  How many hours do you spend on your computers daily?
Ans: More that 2 hours.

Q5: What do you do?
Ans: Chatting, mostly..in Facebook and Yahoo Messenger...

These are the answers that I get from my students these days... It is even worse during the weekend or the school holidays (like now). Computers have taken away their study hours !!!!
There are a few cases which I would like to specially mention here:

Case 1:  A top scorer in the SPM, straight A's. Doing his/her A level now. And there are B's and C's in the exam slip !!! What's wrong?? Of course, there are reasons given.., such as.." oow.., the subjects are tough..", "it's difficult to understand"... Mind you, during the SPM, this student took 10 subjects and got all A's. There are only 6 subjects in the A level, and the student got only 2 A's... Why? What went wrong?
I tell you why...
1.  The tension has gone. The student studies leisurely....
2.  Time management is poor. Breakfast at 12.00 noon, Lunch at 5.00pm. Dinner at 11.00 pm. Supper at 4.00am. Sleep at 6.00am. Your life is upside down....
3.  Stayed up late at night...not studying, but "face-booking"... This is Time Wasting !!
4.  Watching films at Astro... Again, Time Wasting....
5.  Wasting time "sending and receiving SMSs", via handphones...
6.  Playing video games, such as soccer in the laptop given by parents or their sponsor. Again, this is time wasting.....

Case 2:   A school student sitting for the SPM this year... Used to get straight A's in his/her UPSR and PMR.
But, he/she have difficulties in certain subjects at school. Recently, the student failed in subjects such as Add Maths, Chemistry and Biology in the recent First Term Exam. Even, Modern Maths got 40% only...What went wrong??
1.  Wasted 1 year (Form 4) "honeymooning".... Didn't took seriously during normal classes.
2.  Too busy in school being a Prefect, Club Secretary, so and so.... and missing a lot of normal classes in school.
3.  Too many tuition classes to follow. In fact, every weekend is filled with tuition classes from morning till night.. That makes the mind very tired !!!
4.  Lack of sleep. Same thing...Stayed up late at night, surfing the internet and chatting in "Facebook".
5.  "SMSs with boyfriend/girlfriend until late hours in the morning (till 3am)....and words like "sayang", "abang", "rindu", "cium", "mimpi"....are aplenty in their "SMSs"... wheh...I feel like vomiting !!!

These are some of the basic reasons why students cannot excel in their studies these days.... Time wasting and do not know how to manage time!!!
If you have kids or if you are a student yourself... don't take offend. What I'm saying are the facts of life nowadays... Teach yourself "Time Management"  and you'll continue getting A's in your exams....
Remember!!.. Manage your time.....

Have a nice day....
