You should make a planner as a dev
In this blog, I am going to talk about why you should create and use some type of planner to plan out your daily tasks. and how it can help you as a dev and in general a more efficient person.
In my time during flatiron school(Software engineering) I was not expecting the amount of stress I was gonna have to overcome. With all the stuff we have to do and learn I was finding it hard to keep up with all of it and falling behind. So I turned towards making a planner and started to plan out my days to help.
Here are some reasons why making a planner can help you.
- Time Management! This is one of the most important ones. Especially for my situation I had lots of labs to do and lectures to re-watch and projects and blogs to write and it was very overwhelming but a planner can fix this. if you plan out what time of the day you start on certain things you can check off that task and move to the next. Also, this allows you to see everything on one page and it makes it easier to grasp in your head.
- Stress Relief! Stress has many forms and one of the most common forms is being overwhelmed
- Great for productivity
- Gives you a great perspective
- Helps with procrastination
Here are some planner apps if you don't want to use a physical notebook of some kind.
