Recommendation

Option 1: Weekly schedule with EVERYTHING

Option 2: Inbox Zero (Malc's version)

1) Email yourself tasks you can do now.

2) If you can't do it NOW (dentist, meetings) make a Google Calendar event. Set up email reminders.

3) Every time you check your email, you see your task list. No escape!

4) Your aim is to keep your inbox empty.

Option 3: Post its

This is used by some of my best organised students.

Option 4: To-do apps

For example, Google Tasks.

Only use somethign that can send you notifications to annoy you into doing homework. You will never willingly click that button at the weekend.
