Getting Your Priorities Straight’s College Life editor presents this simple process for keeping track of and prioritizing your assignments. Her system is deceptively simple — we often don’t think about priorities because it seems obvious what’s most important; in fact, what we’re doing when we say something is “obvious” is filing the same kind of record this system creates, only in our heads instead of on paper. Getting in the habit of “off-loading” that kind of work to a trusted pen-and-paper (or electronic, if you’re comfortable with that) system can really help free up “mental RAM” for thinking and learning — the stuff that you’re (hopefully) in college for in the first place.
