Make a to do list: Not only does it help you keep track of what needs to be done, but checking or crossing off completed items can be very satisfying and motivational.

Pack your school bag the night before: No one likes forgetting a multi-hour homework assignment at home, bring C-day materials to an odd block day, or forgetting that TI-84 the day of a math test.

One thing at a time: By finishing one task before starting the next, you avoid scattering your attention which increases efficiency.
