You’ve got assignments coming from every direction and you can’t stop procrastinating because the task ahead seems so daunting; if this sounds like you, I’ve got a few tips that could help you out.
1. Create a to-do list
Creating a list of things that you want to complete each day is one of the best tactics I’ve ever used to help me be more productive. Laying out what you want to complete by the end of the day makes you much more focused on realising that goal and eliminates the time you waste when your trying to figure out what task to do next. I’d suggest giving yourself about 3 goals a day for starters and editing this to your liking later on.
2. Use an alarm or timer
A very effective way of working is to focus intensely for 45 minutes and then treat yourself to a 15 minute break, before returning back to that intense focus. A great way to implement this method of working, and make sure you stick to it, is to use the timer or alarm on your phone. Having the alarm ring and notify you that you should be working or taking a break is going to make it much easier to enforce these rules upon yourself.
3. Don’t wait until the last minute
This one is obvious, but it’s amazing to see the amount of people that don’t follow this advice. If your assignment is due on the 11th of May, you shouldn’t be working on it on the 10th of May. Preferably, you want to give yourself about a week between you finishing your assignment and the submission deadline. Instead of going out with friends and then rushing to complete your assignment on time, finish your assignment real early and have as much fun as you want after when you have no more worries about getting it done.
If you utilise these tips, you’ll have much less stress when it comes to university woes. Let me know if these super tips for busy students help you out or not on Twitter.
