Hello everyone! How’s everyone lately? It’s now the second week of the new year and I know a lot of you guys are now going back to your usual pace. Currently, I am spending more time with my family now than ever before diving in to the next chapter of my life. I felt the need to recuperate after the nonstop participation with the academe for roughly 22 years, so I decided to lie low for a moment and find the serenity within. 😉
Anyway, a lot of people are asking me how to create a study strategy and make a schedule that will really keep you sane for life. A lot of techniques are out there, but here I share with you how to create a study plan that works. Yep, this is the ONE THING that works for me.
I introduce you to the wonders of a Study Planner — it can be something that is scheduled daily or even weekly. I prefer this kind of schedule because I know I can set S.M.A.R.T. goals — Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. You can also make it more specific by giving more focus on your projects, or if exams are on the way you can stay exam-focused for the mean time, and the ultimate hack of all is being aware of your timetable.
MUST READ: Set your Goals Right and How to Keep Track
An effective study planner is something that keeps you motivated to finish the tasks and prioritize the must ones. Having a checklist is another point that helps you get that dopamine of finally finishing a task and moving on to the next. So here I am sharing with you my study planner.
I specially designed this to give you the essentials of an effective study plan tracker. You don’t need a LOT of pages just to keep you organized. All you need is this simple but very effective 4-page planner that I have designed for you. Like I always say, LESS IS MORE. The least that you can do right now is get overwhelmed by information overload. That will be counterproductive! So, having a concise way of organizing your thoughts and tasks is the best way to create a strategic plan for your study.
Organize Your Thoughts, Not on Paper
I made two color variations that you can choose from — one is in pink and the other is in blue. What’s great with this is that THEY ARE FILLABLE! Yes! You can all the way GO PAPERLESS and help in your own way for Mother Nature. You can have your study planners with you wherever you may go. With your phones and PDF apps ready, you don’t have to think twice where you’ve jotted down your to-do list. It’s all up to you and your own preferences. 😉 But just the thought of having your papers all virtual, well-kept in your phones is priceless.
Freshen Up Your Mind
More than just organizing your study, is the need to renew your perspective every single day. In that way, you regain a healthier view of things which will help you stay on top of your work! Balance is always the key, and having the time to just stay sane should also be a significant part of your productivity hacks to keep you going. In this planner, you get yourself your very own motivation corner. You can write anything that you feel writing, and just be yourself as you reflect. 🙂
