Multiple cups of coffee, long hours in the library, working, and attending meetings started to consume my life. As a full-time college student working 3 jobs and being involved with organizations, life can get exhausting. Here are 5 tips to working smarter.

  1. Be organized.

Make a “To Do List” of everything that MUST be done each day. Keep a planner with all of your events and/or meetings you must attend to. Organization is key for working smarter.

  1. Take time for yourself.

It is important to set some time aside from your busy schedule for yourself. Set the phone and pen down. Do something everyday that you love and will benefit you in a positive way.

  1. Always remember your goals.

Keep in mind the goals you want to achieve. Work towards achieving them each and every day.

  1. Surround yourself with the right people.

Make sure the people in your life support you and celebrate your success, not your failure. Surround yourself with people you want to be like and inspire you everyday.

I cannot stress enough how important networking is. You never know where a casual conversation or a nice act can lead. People want to help you in your career, just make sure to be kind and remain humble.
