Organization and Time Management

  • Gregory M. Colón Semenza


In approximately six years of graduate study, your goal will be to learn how to conduct serious research, read hundreds of books and articles, refine your teaching until you can do it well, publish at least two articles, write a book-length study, serve on a number of departmental and/or college committees, and fight for and obtain a tenure-track position—among other things. Feeling stressed out already? If you are human, the answer probably is “yes,” and the bad news is that stress is likely to be a fairly regular visitor from now on. This chapter is designed to help you deal with and even begin alleviating the stress caused by the overwhelming demands of professional academic life.
