management; provide a three-sentence explanation of why you selected each strategy: Strategy #1: Delegate household tasks.  Explanation (minimum three complete sentences): I selected this strategy because if the house is messy or the laundry is piling up, I can’t focus like I should. I keep thinking about all  the things I need to do in the rest of the house. If I have the girls help me with it all it will get done quicker. This will enable me to keep my  mind on my school work when it is time. It will also allow me to keep my mind on them when it is their time. I believe this will keep  everyone happy.  Strategy #2: Keep the music and television off so I can concentrate better when doing school work.  Explanation (minimum three complete sentences): While I can multitask well I have decided I need to keep the television and music off during study time. It is too easy to let my mind  wander and sing a song in my head when I’m reading.  Next thing I know I’ve missed the point of something I read and I didn’t even  realize it. It happened with the directions for the discussion board task this week. I was so embarrassed. This is another benefit of having  most of my study time scheduled after the girls go to bed. The house is already quiet so there is no fighting against the noise.  Strategy #3: Keep my daily to do list in writing in front of me at all times.  Explanation (minimum three complete sentences): Until this assignment I was keeping my “to do” list only in my phone, checking it periodically throughout the day.  Now, although I  still create it with my phone, I email it to myself each day and print it out. Keeping it in front of me tends to keep me more task focused  and I find I accomplish a lot more in a shorter amount of time.  3. Support Your Peers: Take some time to reflect upon what you have learned from this activity. If you were to support and encourage your classmates in achieving success with THEIR calendars, what would you say? Please include your comments here. ( minimum 100-word+ statement ): I would suggest to my peers that they break everything down into as small a task as possible.  Things seem to get done quicker  simply because you can get through them quicker. It makes the day seems far less overwhelming when you are constantly able to

remove things from what still needs to be done. It is also much easier to feel accomplished when you look at the list and see so much of  it done.  A final note would be that should you not get through the entire list and need to move things to the next day it is far less  intimidating to move a few “small things” that won’t take long over to the next day than it is to move a huge project.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
