Unconventional productivity tips
When at home, wear shoes. Having shoes on makes you think of "I'll go somewhere". Get a pair only for the inside.
When you can't keep up with a journal or digital planner, get 1 piece of paper and write the routine you want to have the next morning. Follow that order. The key is for that paper to be the first thing you see in the morning.
Have a routine for when you are low, medium and high energy. You know what to prioritize for yourself based on these.
Wear anything but pyjamas. Have a set of clothes for work at home if you don't want to use your outside clothes.
Wear perfume or jewelry. Just like the shoes, it gives you the feeling of "being ready to go".
Set an alarm for 15 min and do the task for that amount of time. It works for tasks you've avoided for ages.
Countdown from 5 til 0 and then go do the task.

how i use notion
i started using notion two years ago but at first i thought it didn’t work for me. the problem was i was focusing too much on the aesthetic part of it, and I hadn't explored it enough to figure out what worked for me.
( if you want to download the old one here is the link )
i’ve learned my brain focuses more if the setting is simple so here is how i use my new set up
just the link to the two pages that i need: personal and university
only some task and the goals for the month
books, movies, things i need to buy for my new house, ideas list etc.
a simple table to track expenses monthly, and another one to add all the stats of the year
again some tasks and goals, the subjects i’m working on, the plan of the semester and also a study plan.
on the subjects i’m working on i just have the books i need to study and the projects i need to do
if you like it and want to download it here is the link

I FINALLY UNDERSTAND BIOSTATISTICS AND EPIDEMIOLOGY. Yall have no idea how happy i am. Currently going through the lectures. The one you see on my screen is a presentation prepared by yours truly.
I finished going through the First aid and Boards and beyond videos, which practically saved my ass. I highly recommend watching them (for any topic).

Study smartly while working hard :
Hello again ,
Most of us wanted to study hard and smart but can't choose between them .
So here's some tips to study effectively without thinking that you're lacking in study or work.
1. Organise your day :
Isn't feeling like hearing from many places ,
yes , it is . Cause day organizing is the
most important thing in our daily
productive routine. And if you get time at
night then it's best to make tomorrow's
to-do list .
2. Study the topic and basic concept first :
Topic study is important and if you want to
be A+ student then firstly study the topic .
It's experienced thing from me . Cause
from rereading topic your basic concept
will be clear and after concept clearing
you will become straight A + student.
3. Active recall :
Active recall means what you have studied
reread it or solve it again . Rereading or
also called as revising is the best
technique to study ever. When you sit for
your revising session and seem a already
readed chapter then you can do best at
Scientifically proven that when you recall something your brain start effective working and neurons become active and it will help to increase brain functioning.
4. Pomodoro technique :
what is pomodoro technique..? Let's start ,
pomodoro technique means study for the
40 minute straight and then take 10
minute break . At this time you can break
your work in pieces and get the better
results. In pomodoro there is 80-20 rule
and 40-10 rule you can follow any time rule
which is good for your study , to complete
a assignment . But I think you have start
firstly with 60 minute i.e. 40-10 rule.
5. Making self notes:
Making notes while studying is also
important cause you will get what is your
point of view to look at that point and your
study'll be effective. Notes doesn't means
cheat sheets or flashcards ,it means
important point that you need . Only that
point that you can study later or at exam
time in less time or at less power wasting
on finding it in book .
Lastly I would like to say that please make your own study timetable and do follow it . If flashcards are effective for you then use it. In my case I don't find it effective so make your own choice for study .
Best luck 😇👍

this is your sign to start writing a list of all the things and aesthetics you want to be. then go on literally any social media platform you use and follow the hashtags, accounts, people, threads, people who inspire you. fill your fyp with the things you want to see and bee. and then after that, block out anything and everything that isn't serving you. make a playlist for your dreams. make vision boards and moodboards and make the maximum use of the social media algorithm. and then go ahead and thank people who have inspired you. spread the kindness. express gratitude in the comments. and eventually you become the content you had consumed.

Life is not just about the stuffs you’re dealing with today, it’s more about the dreams and the future.
I had this kind of epiphany when I heard about the Urgent Important Matrix for the first time.
I used to be busy all the time, get lots of things done every day, but before I went to sleep, I still felt frustrated and anxious. I was not lazy or anything, and I tried to be productive. But why did I feel that way?
I had that kind of misconception that everything that seemed to be urgent were important, but actually, they were not. I got overwhelmed, I was not able to distinguish or organize, so I completed all urgent ones, and then I had no time for what truly matters, the important things were delayed. That’s why I still felt no sense of fulfillment after I did lots of things.
There are people doing jobs they don’t like, there are kids who mean to do something great, and they all require long-term plans to make a difference in their lives. Those important things outside of your career or school leads to achieving your goals, they seem to be not urgent, they do not require immediate attention, they are easily ignored. I guess that’s why people procrastinate, that’s why people regret, and that’s why people suffer.
So I studied more about Urgent Important Matrix, and I made this app.
It all started with this matrix of course, but there are 3 major concepts about this app.
* Sort the priorities. Make rational decisions of what to do first. Import but no Urgent tasks are high-valued, schedule them at a fixed time and do them repeatedly. I separate them from other lists, it’s called “Routine”, this list helps you learn skills, form good habits and achieve goals.
* Visualize the progress and the goal, there is a path view and a goal view, that shows all your achievements. Everything you did today means a step closer to your goal, and every steady step you take means something. It’s the little things you do, day by day, that make the biggest difference. and they all lead to that goal you set.
* Focus on today. You can’t regret yesterday, you can’t promise to tomorrow, all you can do is to focus on today, give all you have. There is a timeline showing what the present time is, it is not in yesterday’s tasks or tomorrow’s, it only exists in Today, and it means you need to focus on now, do the hard work, be ready for the next task.
I spent almost all my spare time on this app in the past three years, I know this app is not perfect, but I tried to make this app as useful as possible, hoping it could help people to figure out how much they can achieve, so best wish to you all, pay the hard work, you will get your reward.
(Almost forgot, It has 9 different color themes, simple with no distraction, it matches with your iPhone, or not, just pick one color you like)
And also I look forward to all kinds of suggestions and opinions, your words do matter.
App link on the App store is below⬇️

The author of this post has changed their mind about the last piece of advice at the bottom.
You don’t have to fake it if you don’t want to
You are not obligated to put on a show for others especially if you need help-reaching out to family and friends is the right thing to do

Today I do some exercises before starting my study session. My first day as an official university student will begin less than 20 days from now. Wish me luck!
• Favorite time to study?
I prefer to study in the morning rather than at night because it does give me some comfort. While at night, I usually spend my time writing my journal.

Create a Google doc, Notion page, or whatever workspace you use and name it “Things I’m afraid to do.” Here, you can put whatever has been on your mind that you’re putting off and procrastinating—such as a big project, studying, essay, or whatever you have that’s been nagging you.
By acknowledging the fact that the task seems daunting, you are actually working through the first step of accomplishing it. It makes large projects seem just a little more doable solely because I named it something that amuses me.
For example, I was so anxious in asking a professor for a recommendation, so I put it in my “things I’m afraid to do.” Little by little each day, I drafted the email to send to them and ended up not procrastinating. Hope this helps!
