Prioritize your time and make a list of the most important activities you plan to do.

With so much to do and so little time to do it all, it's very important to have good time management skills. Some people are better at it than others and some just need a little more practice.
With so many new innovative ideas in technology a good idea for organizing can be using your Smartphone to make a to-do-list. When you do this make sure to organize your list according to what's important. Telling the difference between what you want to do with your time and what you need to do with your time can be a hard thing to decipher.
It's a good idea to set aside time to even think about the activities that you will put on your list. As teenagers we have very full plates to carry every day and it can be overwhelming, especially with all the homework. Staying organized can help us to stay on the right path.
A big priority for teenagers should be to graduate and get that high school diploma. In order to get to that point we may have to sacrifice some of those fun things on our to-do-list, at least for the moment. Staying organized and focused with clear priorities in sight makes this journey to the end a lot more bearable, and remember, there will always be time for the fun activities once we are done with high school.
