Workshop host, Fabiola Vega, lectures on the importance of time management

Last week, a workshop on the subject of time management was brought to Rio Hondo so that students can better understand its importance.

Time Management

So, what is time management? According to any dictionary, time management is the analysis of how working hours are spent and the prioritization of tasks to maximize personal efficiency in the workplace.

Rio Hondo has a very vibrant community of students, many of whom have homework to worry about. Not just homework, many students also have work, family, and even other classes. But having so many tasks can stretch a person far and wide. Which is why this workshop was done. For the students who need to learn about time.

The Workshop

The workshop was hosted by one, Fabiola Vega, a student life success coach. Despite her speed, she was legible in what to do. Using her time wisely.

Unlike many of the other workshops, this workshop was relatively short in length. But that didn’t mean there was nothing to learn. Vega let the students think about why time management is so important. Good time management can allow students to be more productive and avoid dangers such as burnout.

Another part of the lecture was on organization, especially in school. Keeping track of what to do and when to do it. Not at all letting yourself fall to procrastination or else you lose time.

“You want to make sure you are not procrastinating for anything,” Vega said, “the more you procrastinate the more of a chance you fail to get things done.”


It is best to put important things first as the lecture states. Like many of the other workshops against procrastination, it can have negative effects if you let it continue. The importance of organizing your time allows you to give you all the time in the world.
