Now, I don’t know about you but my first day back at school is tomorrow, so I thought today would be a good time to write a really short post on how to stay productive after school. It’s hard I know! But the method I use is really simple to create and makes you a lot more likely to do what you need.
I find to-do lists so helpful, and this is what I use every single night! As an example, the one in the photo was from a day in the holidays, and as you can see I had a fair amount to do that day.
The way I create these lists is to just write everything you need to do down on a piece of paper in a bullet point list, then go through the list and colour in the bullet points if I absolutely must get it done today. I also add little lines to make them look like suns, but that’s completely up to you 😜
Although I haven’t done it on the list shown (because I had a full day to complete everything), I normally then also number the order in which I’ll complete the tasks, and I’ll just put this number to left of the bullet point. And that’s it! This is a really simple way to ensure you do everything you need – if you have it all written down in the order you’re going to do it, you’re much more likely to actually do it because you’re trying to meet your targets. That said, be careful to be realistic, because you also need to have some time to relax.
