Divide the hours you spent in each category by 168 (the total number of hours in a 7 day period).

Step 1: Record your time for 7 daysStep 2: Think about the top three things you value most, maybe school, family, work, your health, etc. and record for later use.

Step 3: Add up how much time you spent over the entire week in the following categories:

  • Sleeping
  • School
  • School work
  • Work
  • Leisure
  • Family

Step 4: Divide the hours you spent in each category by 168 (the total number of hours in a 7 day period).

Ex. Sleeping – 36 hrs. / 168 = 0.2142857

Move the decimal place two places to the right and drop the remaining numbers to determine the percentage.

Ex. 0.214 = 21%

Step 5: Create a pie chart or bar chart that represents the categories above and your values. Illustrate how much of your time was spent doing each activity.

Step 6: Based on your results from the pie chart, reflect on your time management. Write a paragraph (7 -10 sentences) addressing the following questions:

  • Overall, are you satisfied with how you spent your time?
  • How does the time you spend align with your values?
  • In what three areas are you spending the most time?
  • Are there areas for which you are spending too little time?
  • If you were to make two changes to your schedule to align with your values, what would they be and why?
