I always carry a small planner around with me, the same size as a check book. Each two pages covers a week which gives me lots of room to write things down in. Today I checked my planner at a stop sign on the way to school and saw I had an assignment due today and I had known about since Wednesday, and as you can guess I hadn't done it. Despite my attempt at staying organized I have the horrible habbit of rarely going back in my planner to read what is coming up in the future.
I am going to start making out a list of things that need accomplished each day, not just stuff from the planner but more mundane stuff, example, laundry and buy groceries. Along with that a list of things I need to be aware of that are on the horizon.
So what strategies does everyone here use to stay ontop of things and not get overwhelmed? I realize a big part of it is just doing it.
