No matter if you're working full time, or in school like myself, balancing everything you need to do can be a tricky business. How does one manage everything and still stay sane? For me, I use a To Do list. A To Do list may seem so simple, and it is, but it is also a good way of actually keeping track of what you need to do, and what you've already done. I use an agenda for a day to day list, and a white board to keep all of my ongoing tasks and expecting dates in order. If I didn't come up with a list, and actually keep track of my things, who knows what kind of state I would be in.
Start with all the things you need to do in a day on your list, and keep it going for all your upcoming important things. For today, I had to clean my apartment, finish an assignment, and read a novel all before my dad and his friend came over to hook up my dishwasher (It will finally be hooked up - Yay!). My list for today, and all its completed (small) accomplishments have inspired this post.
Hopefully this will inspire you to come up with a written list to keep yourself organize, at least on all the small things you need to do in a day.
