Time Management Tips for Academics

Lindsay Curtis

by Lindsay Curtis

Among the many skills you need as an academic leader, time management may be one of the most important ones to have in your toolbox. Though it may sound like one of those “easy” skills you can shrug off and not think much of, the truth is that time management is something many struggle with—especially in our modern era full of distractions.

You’re a master of your own time, which can be liberating, but also result in overwhelm and inefficiency if you don’t have effective time-management tactics. Here are some tips to help you structure your time, take control of your days, and find that coveted work-life balance.
