Re: Back to skewl... to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool!

What's your best tip for staying organised?

I AM THE LIST QUEEN. 

I seriously make lists for EVERYTHING, I kid you not.

@florenceforever Yes...I am an avid list maker as well.  And I like to plan a schedule for the day too.  It has to be realistic though and you need to mix it up.  Otherwise you get bored and sick of working on the same thing.

@unrealreality I certainly love my sleep too! And I know for sure if I havnt had enough sleep I'm often too zombified to even think of studying.


Staying organised for me is: Writing a memo on my phone a week before due date, Writing the memo in my diary, Having a huge year planned on my wall and writing everything I have to remember from birthdays to holidays (my fav timeof year) and due dates. I also write what unit im doing and what i need to take!
Most of all the night before class I check I have everything and usually re-read what I need to and tab the pages. My classmates think I'm a neat/organisation freak.
I also have a folio that bring with the last 3-5 units we have done with all the paper work in it. I often get asked in class what we had due or what paper work we needed to read, or asked for copies.

What's your best tip for staying organised?

I am big fan of putting everything in my diary, classes, due dates, work, volunteer commitments... It helps me to see how much time I have each week and sort out what's most important. I can also then "back-manage" to help me meet deadlines (i.e. I will add in additional deadlines for myself like, 'start essay', 'research done by x date' and 'first draft done by x date').

What's your best tip for staying organised?
I used lists to-do lists and constantly rewrote them at the start of each week. I also wrote down every TINY bit of homework I had to do, from highlighting to writing an essay! It got a bit overwhelming at times, but I knew exactly what I had to do. I also tried to keep my folders as neat as I could. I was a little bit of a perfectionist when it came to things being in the wrong place!

I think the best way to get organised and stay organised is to find a system that works for you and stick with it. I found if you try to change something that already works, it doesn't help any!!
