Make Lists Not Fists: A Student Survival Guide to Stress-free Productivity

Make Lists Not Fists: A Student Survival Guide to Stress-free Productivity


Most of us become regular to-do list makers at some point in our lives. We tend to scribble them down carelessly on Post-it notes, in diaries, on pieces of scrap paper, without any sense of forethought. If we get too busy, however, such a system tends to collapse. We have way too many Post-its tacked to our wall. Our diary becomes a blur of crossed out to-do items and illegible comments. We get stressed and foggy. What’s needed, in such busy times, is a proper to-do list philosophy: a stripped-down, fine-tuned system that will allow you to use your lists in a highly efficient way. This is exactly what this book offers. Written with a student audience in mind (but useful for anyone with a high workload), Make Lists Not Fists will help you to de-stress, de-clutter, and take charge of your productivity – all through the power of lists. Topics covered include:-How to set up an effective digital time management system with your smartphone and laptop-How to use a diary properly (hint: keep it almost completely empty)-How to focus only on what is urgent and important, and forget about everything else”It actually works. I cannot recall one more stressful moment since I started working with it.” Debby-Esmée de Vlugt, college student.
