Many students hear the phrase to-do list
and they groan. To-do lists are not a source of added work. Instead, to-do lists make your life easier because they list everything that you need to do or remember for a given day, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything. You’ll also be more likely to keep up with your tasks – academic and otherwise – if you have a written record of what needs to be done and can check off what you’ve already completed (a very rewarding activity!). Make one for each week or even each day and you’ll find that you’re more on top of what needs to be done than ever. What goes on your list? Anything that you need to do.
