Managing Your Work Habits

A guide to help you choose methods and tools for organizing your research and work in meaningful ways.

Calendars

Organization of time vital to productivity and ensuring you make it to obligations and complete projects.

Online calendars make it easier to:

  • schedule recurring events
  • collaborate
  • link email events to calendar
  • get reminders on your phone

Blocking out time for working on projects can be helpful for prioritizing. Print calendars can be used in combination with online calendars to visualize larger amounts of time (i.e. events happening in one month). It may also be useful to put assignment due dates in a calendar.
