I read somewhere that the key to sucesss is to get 25 hours of productivity out of a 24 hour day. And this has stuck with me.
If you saw my productivity from fall quarter to spring quarter, you would think I’m a different person.
It’s more advice from your friendly neighborhood blogger. In three easy steps you can be more successful-ler in anything that you do!
Make a list, make a list of the lists you have. Bullet mark your lists on a central list and make post-it notes of your list’s lists.
Lists are massively underrated! In college you’ll have so many things to do, and people to see, that you’re bound to forget something but with the power of lists, you can stop forgetting things and even do things that you won’t have to worry about in the future!
For instance, I have my list say things that I NEED to do today, things that I SHOULD do today, and other optional things. And also between tasks or events, I have “If convenient” tasks. Like “Get Milk” if possible afte chemistry. Because we all need Milk!
I bought a planner for the first time in my life spring quarter, and that was the catalyst to the most productive period of my life. And all I did was write down my class schedule, and plan each week at a time. If I had a paper due on wednesday, I would write sunday-tuesday to work on said paper. It becomes a lot easier to not become overwhelmed if you just take life one week at a time and plan several days for tasks.
3. Plan for work, plan for fun, and plan for the unplanned
I usually had my homework or organization meetings planned on my planner or calendar. And I also had fun things planned, like racket ball or frisbee golf too. But leave room for life to happen. You never know if your job is going to call you in for more hours, or if an old friend wants to catch up for lunch, or if someone is giving away tickets to a cool concert that day.
The Key to being successful isn’t have a tight knit life with everything planned, but just getting done what needs to get done by when it needed to be done. And than letting life happen between plans.
