STUDENT LIFE: WHY A TO-DO LIST IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU

WHY A TO-DO LIST IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU AS A STUDENT

As a student, there are days when you have a whole lot of things to do, and you do not know how you're going to get it all done. With the vast quantity of tasks- assignments, lectures, practical, study and many other whatnots, you tend to lose track of some loose ends and forget to do important things.

That's why a TO-DO list is essential for every student. By keeping such a list, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in a place so you don't loose track of anything important.

That being said, let's  take a quick rundown as to why a TO-DO list is important for you. Read on!

¶ ' A guide to  action ' 
One of the most important reasons for keeping a TO-DO list is the organization. It guides you from day-to-day. It's much more like a compass or map.

With a TO-DO list, you have a guider that makes everything( tasks) much more manageable and makes you feel grounded.

Having a list of all your tasks will allow you sit down and make a plan. Fifteen minutes spent planning could save an hour of execution time you know.

With a TO-DO list, you definitely quit the habit of jumping from one task to the other without completing any in record time.

¶ ' Extra Brain capacity'

We all as humans tend to forget things( sometimes important tasks) due to the nature of our short-term memory.

Keeping a TO-DO list definitely settles that for you. It will allow you to easily keep track of everything that you need to do 

Take it as an external SD card added to your phone memory. It's a profitable form of backup.

¶ ' It gives you a starting line'

The first benefit you stand to get by having a TO-DO list is that it helps you to prioritize your tasks. Arranging them according to their importance.

This therefore makes you avoid setting out on the wrong foot. With a TO-DO list, you avoid doing the last thing first. It gives you a starting line.

¶ ' Tracks your progress'

You can't ascertain your level of success when you don't have a record of what you've achieved in record time and the tasks yet to be achieved.

But, however, a TO-DO list helps you keep track of your progress, the tasks you've achieved and the ones yet to be checked.

A TO-DO list is a handy tool that permeates through your work for the day, opening up for you to see how far you've gone. It's a reminder to keep you on track.

To put a full stop, a TO-DO list is a GUIDE TO ACTION. It turns a shapeless mound of work into a sequence of tasks you can tackle. It tells you WHERE TO START and enables you to TRACK YOUR PROGRESS.

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…
