Time management and career planning: long-term, short-term, and daily goals.

Managing your time is crucial throughout any career. Although often overlooked, time management is in fact a key academic skill, which can be gained and honed through learning. In this workshop, we aim to analyze the difficulties in time management we face as students and early-career scientists, and to learn different approaches to tackling and prioritizing tasks in terms of short-term, long-term, or work-life balance. In the first part of the workshop, we have invited three speakers, who all face high workload and various deadline pressure, to share their own experiences and strategies in managing their time. Specifically, Karolina Heyduk will cover how to tackle short-term tasks and goals effectively, J. Chris Pires will talk about why it is necessary and important to establish long-term goals, and Lena Struwe will discuss the management of balancing demands from our academic and non-academic responsibilities. The second half of the workshop will provide hands-on activities to help attendees explore various time management techniques. Participants will be asked to draft out their long-term and short-term goals, as well as daily goals. During the workshop, the speakers will discuss with the participants about their goals, aid participants in establishing priorities, and will provide constructive feedback when they are needed.
