Pursuing a PhD: Organizing ALL Your Due Dates in One Document - Week 6
This week I am talking about how I organize my assignments. Some of the things I use are Organize 365® Slash Pockets which are colored red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. These slash pockets help you organize the basic tasks at home and work inside a Sunday Basket® or a Friday Workbox®. These organize the everyday events, not the projects. I use colored slash pockets, productivity tabs, and highlighted documents to keep track of everything within my courses. Red: Research Lab Orange: Wednesday Class – Psych 501 Yellow: Thursday Class – Psych 502 The game changer for me was creating the Excel spreadsheet with all assignments and readings ordered by the due date and color-coded. I cannot explain how much more grounded I felt when I could see everything I needed to do inside of a 2-page spread. This gives me the extra buffer I need by allowing me to stay ahead. Suppose you have different moving deadlines, moving pieces, or moving parts that need to be done over some time. In that case, it may be helpful to put all of those into one big document in order of when things need to happen, versus keeping things separate in separate categories of your life. What would happen if, in hectic seasons of your life, you would use this one big document to go by what is due next versus what role you are playing in your life?
