- What does your school schedule look like/when do you have class?
- How much time do you need to study?
- What subject do you need the most time for?
- How long does it take you to get ready in the morning/for bed in the evening?
- When do you meet with friends?
- How long does the way from school/college take?
- How much freetime do you want to have?
- How many breaks between studying?
- How much time do your hobbies take away?
Count the hours/minutes you need for everything you do – but always plan some buffer time! Then write down on what day you do what so that you have a roughly overview to put in every column.
- Monday: Piano lessons (one hour) , History class (two hours), morning routine (30 min.), dinner (one hour)…
- Tuesday: Meeting with friends (three hours), Tumblr (one hour), Workout (30 min.)..
- Wednesday: Englisch class (three hours)…
2. Make your Plan
You can use a program, an app, a printable sheet, a calender.. Whatever you want! I always find it helpful to colour-cordinate everything.
- Green – Study Time
- Yellow – Class
- Blue – Family Time
- Red – Hobbys
- Pink – Free Time

3. Stick to your Plan
- write your goals right next to your plan
- Take enough breaks – not only when you are studying (don´t stress yourself!)
- Change your plan if you realize that you don´t like something
- If you realize that a plan isn´t right for you, then that´s ok. It doesn´t work for everyone
- Take enough time to do the things you love
- Be realistic
- Find out when it´s the best time for you to study, do a workout etc.
- Change Things up – don´t work on math for three hours and then on chemistry for two… you will get bored fast (if you don´t love to do these things)
