Using Google Calendar to track and achieve your goals.

Using Google Calendars is not much different than using a physical paper Calendar… but, it is much more convenient for us in this day and age.

Google Calendar is something that I have found to be very useful in university (aka college) and in life.

  • I have made custom calendars, in relation to my goals (as recommended in the previous post, to track and achieve your goals).
  • I have set up free reminders (email and SMS… yes, that’s SMS on your phone!) to remind me about future events like exams, study periods, coming assignment due dates, and other important and fun stuff :/
  • Since Google Calendar is ‘in the cloud’, you can access it anywhere with internet connection – my house, uni library, my smartphone, at the cafe with wifi etc.

Best thing of all: it was easy… easy as pie my friends. Yum!
