Article *
When multiple projects have you overwhelmed, try breaking down each project into small parts or partial goals. Look at your schedule and designate the time needed to complete each part of every project to help you stay on task.

If you would like help with getting started on your managing plan, schedule an appointment to meet with a peer tutor in the Learning Resource Center.
