Hey guys! Welcome back. I’ve been in college for nearly two years now and still haven’t learned effective time management. It’s just not something I am great at. I tried to set up a routine for this semester, but it just didn’t work out. Everyday is different and the things I need to do are different.

So I gave up my routine. I decided to make to-do lists everyday instead. This has proven to be more effective. Some days I just can’t get through a routine, but having a list is helpful because I know exactly what I need to get done. Routines work for some people, but they didn’t work for me.

Instead I take things one day at a time. Check out my post about creating an effective to-do list if that interests you. As college students we are always busy and no two days are typically alike. I can’t do the same things on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon because I have nothing on Tuesday, but Thursday is full all the way up to 8:00 p.m. So for 12 hours I am going non-stop.

So having a routine didn’t work for me. If it works for you, great. If not, don’t get discouraged. You’re not alone. Let us know in the comments what works for you and if you have tried both. Are there ways to make a routine more effective?

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
