Manage deadlines

Part of getting work done is getting it done on time. When you get a new assignment, write the due date in your diary.

See what else you have due around that time and allocate a couple of nights to each essay, so you can start thinking about your ideas.

If you have trouble with deadlines, ask someone you know to keep you on track.
