Many people create a to-do list of all the things they must do, but it is also important to keep a “done” list. A “done” list is where you check the completed tasks off as “done”. Keeping a “done” list is important because it will give you a sense of accomplishment when you can tick your tasks off as “done”. You will feel more productive and it will help to keep your momentum. This can lead to you getting more done in the long run.
Reward yourself for each task you have completed. It doesn’t need to be something big. If you celebrate each small step of progress, it will enable you to sustain your focus over the weeks and months of hard work. You can also use fun things you want to do as a reward for completing your homework and assignments. This way you’ll enjoy them more knowing that you’re making progress.
