Want to be your most productive self this year for only $30 (or less)? The answer lies in your 2018 agenda.
According to Lifehack, jotting down notes and reminders to yourself — including phone numbers and upcoming academic deadlines — can greatly reduce your stress level and keep you at an all-time efficiency high. It also helps you to maintain a facade of successful #adulting.
