  1. Determine your priorities - What activities are most important to you?

  2. Set firm boundaries for your schedule - Blocking off time for your schoolwork, extracurriculars, and volunteer work helps keep your time in order!

  3. Set goals - And communicate them with school friends, friends, or your advisors. See last week's post about SMART goals for more help!

  4. Work smarter, not harder - If you have the flexibility, try proven work methods, like the Pomodoro method, to increase your efficiency!

  5. Make time to unplug each day - A good morning & evening routine can be key to a productive day!

  6. NEVER be afraid to rely on your personal network for support - Co-working sessions are a great way to work together and hold each other accountable!
