If people do not manage time, old habits will control the time and will set limits on peoples achievements. So in order for that not to happen get a calendar and write down everything and organize all of the things that have to be done like sleep, activities, school work, studies, etc. Try different calendaring systems and see which one is best. Always plan ahead on assignments and studies because then we will end up procrastinating and the results will not be good. Have some time for yourself to relax and go out with friends because college can be very exhausting and having some time for our mind to relax will be important.
