Self and Time Management (Natural Sciences)

GraduateCenterLMU Workshop for Doctoral Candidates

Time cannot be bought, stored or stopped. Every second that passes is gone forever. In this respect it should be seen as the most valuable of all resources and the only way to maximize its potential is to use it well. What "well" means in this context is a highly individual thing. You will leave the training with many insights on your own patterns and a toolset to increase effectivity and efficiency. You will have a chance to clarify and prioritize your values and goals, and plan tasks and projects that align with your goals. You will identify your particular time wasters and adopt strategies for eliminating them from your work pattern. You will find out about your high energy periods and how to focus your attention. As the planning of scientific research projects becomes more and more crucial, one training unit introduces this topic.

Workshop topics:

  • Values and Goals ... what keeps me on track
  • Priorities! ... first things first
  • Timeline ... how do I deal with time
  • Life Balancing ... dealing with stress and strain
  • Effective Time Management ... how to manage and use time
