Pre-Planning's Rewards

posted: 3.11.09 by archived

Several days ago, I was messaged by my WPA–former WPA, actually–at the CSU where I taught this past fall. She reminded us that our self-evaluations and paperwork were due. And that made me happy. Very happy.

I took care of that a month ago, thanks to Google Calendar and some pre-planning. I regularly post all of my coming deadlines so I don’t forget what needs to be done. And when it comes to publishing, writing, or work-related due dates, I try to post two, four, and six week reminders. Now, I do not have to worry about being late with my work. Not to mention, it’s also very professional looking.

It relieves the tension and stress that looms in my mind. Instead of having to focus on yet another project distracting me from my current classes, I can remain focused on my students.
