  • Google Calendar: I put everything on my calendar and assign different colors to each kind of task. For example, classes and academic-related items are blue, work is yellow, activities are red… This method helps me track the hours allocated to each category. I also sync it to my iPhone to receive notifications 10 mins prior to the event. This acts as a secretary to remind me what I have for the day and helps me countless times when I forgot my appointments.

  • I use my Outlook and Google Calendar for deadlines reminder. I also always try to get things done at least two days before the deadline to prevent stress and doing things last minute, which can affect the quality of my work.
