## PHIL 199

### You Will Need--

• One two pocket folder for each class you are taking

• Hard copies of all course syllabi

• A heavy magic marker

• A blank, unlined sheet of paper

• Calendar, with space for days and hours

### Getting Started

• Brainstorm all the things you need to do.

• Beginning with the first class of the week, label your folder.

• Review your syllabus. List all the things you need to do before Monday.

• Repeat for all classes. Use extra paper if necessary.

### Prioritize

After you’ve established your list, number each item 1, 2, or 3.

• Absolutely has to be done by Monday

• Should be done by Monday

• Doesn’t have to be done by Monday

(For fun: try color coding instead of numbering!)
