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

What's your best tip for staying organised?

 

I think organisation is really hard to achieve, well for me anyway. I have an awful memory, so to stay organised I tend to write everything down in lists or on my phone so I don't forget. I also get really sidetracked very easily, because I have such an active mind. So I try and change up what I'm doing every 20 mins and not spend too much time on any one task, or if I need to spend a lot of time on one task I break it up into sections. So if I'm studying I might write for 20 mins, read for 20 mins then complete a question for 20 mins.

 

I find breaking it up really helps.

My best tip for staying organised is to have a diary. I've got a diary that the guild provides for free. And it is the best thing to have. Because it tells me:

  • when I have a study break,
  • when there is a public holiday BUT if I have any classes I need to go to uni. >.<

And I also add in my diary when I have labs or tutorials to attend to, because for some of my units I attend those classes like every fornight or every three weeks. And it's helpful to write out when I have those classes so it's one less thing on my mind. 

 

And I also add in when my assignmnets are due. 

 

So having a diary is the best thing to have so you know what is happening tomorrow, next week and what plans you have made today.

Me too! I get distracted so easily. I often jump between questions, assignments or subjects to keep myself interested.

Wow, some of you love lists. I agree it can be a great way to keep track of things...when I remember to follow it!

This is a hard one! No one thing seems to work twice for me! A lot of very positive self talk always helps. As does becoming getting energised. I always feel motivated to do things after I've exercised or moved! If I don't feel like going for a walk/run, or don't have, then I go jump on my trampoline for 10 minutes, or until I'm motivated!!

Number 1 motivation tip: Remember that one day, all the hard work and stress will be worth it. And even if I don't get there, I can make myself and my family proud anyway.
