You’re not likely to be assigned a personal assistant while working or studying, so here are some tips on how to make the most of each day.
Don’t take on too much
This way you’ll be able to spend more time on things you care about more/that are more important. It’s okay to say no sometimes!
Keep a to-do list
This way you always know what you need to do. It’s a relief to check tasks off as you complete them.
Set personal goals
A great way to remind you exactly why you’re doing what you’re doing.
This can be marked on your to-do list; it helps you know where to start.
Sometimes it’s good to separate yourself from things like Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram each day in order to get stuff done – even for a few hours!
You can’t be bothered doing something? Completion will be worth it. Reward yourself after a boring or hard task.
It’s a myth – you will not get things done more efficiently! Pick one thing to work on at a time and stick to it, then move on.
A refreshed mind works much better! Leave the room you’re working in and take a short break. This will help you to stay focused when you are ready to work again.
Plan your day ahead
Think about what you need to get done tomorrow and prepare yourself for the next day.
Get a good night’s sleep
This is so important. Running on no sleep makes everything harder; tasks seem more difficult and a lot more boring.
