Some people argue that a PhD is simply a test of perseverance and time management. I personally disagree with that statement, there is a lot more to getting your doctorate, but it cannot be argued that time management is not important. Understanding how you work, when you work best and how to manage your time are really vital in navigating and enjoying any type of study or busy lifestyle.
For some, myself included, this grappling with time management can be helped by using technology and ‘apps’. As I’ve mentioned I’ve recently moved onto a new way of organising my time, away from technology. But there are still definitely elements of my life and study that are managed via a few apps on my phone. In this post I share some that I use, and some that I have used in the past. Let me know if you have any apps that you love to utilise and help you boost your productivity.
