This is one of the most important steps to stay on track with anything you are doing. Making a to-do list for each day will help you remember what you are supposed to do. Don’t worry, I am not referring to a schedule or a time table. A to-do list may comprise of reminders for the deadline of an assignment, or for a test, or a skype call with your parents/friends, or for grocery shopping.
A planner, a diary or even a simple note book can be used to jot down your to-do list. I have my to-do list on my phone, but I also found it useful when I kept it in a place where I could see. And so I use sticky notes to write down each day’s list and then post it on my window, cupboard or any place you look at every day.
Making your goals reasonable is very important as if it is too much there is a higher chance that you would give up on the task. Thus when you are trying to plan out your goals for a week or month, make sure you split it into smaller tasks. For example, it is better if you do not set apart one day to just do all your call appointments, or to work on your assignment. A variety in activity for each day will keep you from getting bored.
