It is quite helpful to layout your goals and create a plan to accomplish them. You may agonize over some tasks, but after further consideration, they may not take as much time as you originally thought or may even be unnecessary all together!

Then fill around those tasks the other responsibilities you have throughout the week (you can use the example list below or create your own). After you complete your schedule, please reflect on your schedule by answer the following three questions.

Using the template below:

2) Create a list of your goals (e.g. get an A in this course, work 20 hours this week, finish my program/degree, etc.)
