Make a list! (and check it twice)

With all you have going between school, sports, friends, club meetings, family events, and all your other responsibilities it can be difficult to know how you can possibly get everything done. Making a list of all your school responsibilities can help keep you on track. Start by listing out all the tasks you need to do within the day, week, or whatever time period works best for you. Start numbering each task 1 to however many tasks you have, 1 being the most important. Consider these things as you place your tasks in order:
  • length of time required to complete task
  • the difficulty of the task
  • the due date
  • does it require preparation
  • will help from others be required
  • will additional materials be needed

Keep working on the list until you have a good feel for the order you have placed each task in. You are prioritizing tasks by putting the most important ones first. This is a skill you will need throughout life, so it's a great time to get started practicing it.

Try making a list of all your tasks and post a comment about how it works for you!

I decided to choose this because I could never remeber to do everything. I write everything down on a notepad. This would help me because i wont forget things now.
