The 3 best time management tips I learned while being in college

I am not going to start this blog post about how college is a stressful time because we all already know that. However, I do want to save your lives (and grades) by listing out the best time management tips that work for me.

1. Get. A. Freaking. Planner.

I promise you that getting a planner will help you stay on top of your school work, club events, job stuff, etc. I personally use a paper planner AND google calendar to keep track of everything. I color coordinate everything by classes, sorority service events, and work-related things. Once I finish a task or attended an event, I highlight it so I know it is completed. Trust me, there is no better feeling than crossing off an assignment that you just submitted.

2. Complete your assignments DAYS before they are due

Yup. You read that right. I tend to complete my assignments 1 week in advanced. This allows me to complete work that ends up being in better quality since it is not rushed, and limits the stress I feel. Completing assignments early lets you get them out of the way, and avoid any technical difficulties at 11:59 pm at night.

3. Follow the Pomodoro Technique while studying and completing assignments.
