Like any college kid, I have lots to do, not much time to do it, and too many distractions around me. I imagine many of you are just getting out of school for winter break, which means it’s college application season. Because I have a whole twenty years of life under my belt, I’m going to spend this post helping all my blog readers get through applying college!
I went to Time Management tutoring every week of sophomore year (yep, that exists in our academic resource center and it’s amazing), so I’ve really thought about this more than most. I realized that for me, the key to being productive is setting reasonable goals that I can achieve. It’s hard to set reasonable goals because all of my tasks take twice as long as I want them to, but I finally know myself well enough to set effective short and long term goals that are personal, academic and social. I’m no robot so being realistic is key.
You’re on a tight schedule, I like bullet points, here we go!
N.B. Since you all have a word count on your essays, I’m trying to keep to 500 words/ blog. I have a lot of thoughts so this is hard.
