Organization is the most important skill any student has. Lack of organization can cause students to lose assignments, or turn them in with errors that could have otherwise been prevented had the correct supplies and time been secured. It all starts a month in advance of an assignment being due with a day planner. Writing down your assignments ahead of time allows you to see them with enough time to break large projects into smaller ones. Write down the steps you will need to take to to complete your project. Cross off each task as you complete it (double checking your work as you go.) You will enjoy the feeling of accomplishment you have as you near your goal. Finally, when you complete your task, acknowledge your hard work. Enjoy it. You have reached your goal.
