It is that time of the semester where assignments appear to be due the same day and final assignments are being assigned. This is the part of the semester where I try really hard to keep to an organized schedule. What I find most helpful is breaking up all of my tasks into the smallest “baby step” that way I don’t feel super overwhelmed. Yes, that means that my current to do list on my app says I have like 30 something things to do a day but that also means that I get to scratch off a lot as well.
For example, my upcoming case presentation.
*do case presentation
My list looks more like this
*pick a family for case presentation
*pick 10 minutes of clip for case presentation
*write background information for case presentation
*identify goals for case presentation
*draw family map and process diagram for case presentation
*identify questions for case presentationHaving all these steps for one project allows me easily divide tasks to different days so I don’t feel overwhelmed to complete it all in one day. For me, if I had just put “do case presentation” each day that passed by where I did not complete that assignment will make me feel like I was not being productive. My current way of doing lists allows me to see how much progress I have made. In a way it helps me visually see how productive I was for the day. That being said….off to make more lists!
