What’s the most important skill for success in college? In my opinion, it’s self management. That means having a system that you use to capture, review, and respond to important information on a daily basis. In other words, take a cue from Santa Claus and make a list and check it twice (or more often). Being accountable, reading and responding to email, using a calendar, and making lists of tasks and reminders are powerful habits for success.
Here are some recommended apps and tools to get you started:
- A small paper notebook that you carry with you at all times along with a pen
- The Notes or Reminders app on your smartphone
- Todoist (To Do List app)
- Google Calendar
- Outlook app (computer or smartphone)
