Getting Shit Done
To Do Lists
This is the most basic technique for keeping track of tasks and deadlines. It comes naturally to most people. There are plenty of ‘grocery list’ style apps – or you could use a piece of paper and a pen.
The Kanban Method
This one is similar to a to do list. Instead of just keeping track of what you have to do, it divides tasks into three categories: To Do, Doing and Done. Use a corkboard, whiteboard, post-it notes or app.
Break It Down
Break down large projects into smaller tasks. Everything becomes a lot more achievable and less intimidating.
Sometimes studying for a crazy amount of hours isn’t the best choice. The Pomodoro Technique is all about efficiently using your time – a shorter amount of time. The original idea is to work solidly (with no distractions) in 25 minute blocks, with 5 minute breaks in between. After four clocks, you get to take a longer break.
