Shovel Study Planner - Quick Tour | HowToStudyInCollege

To the organized student:

I don’t have to explain to you why being organized matters. And for that reason, I don’t have to explain to you why Shovel is the best study planner for you. You’ll get it from watching the video above. We built Shovel for you, so use it.


To the less organized student:

I have two words for you: GET ORGANIZED!

I don’t want to sound dramatic, but your life depends on it.

If you are stressed in school, I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that your bad time and workload management is causing it.

You start your assignments late, rush, pull all-nighters, and never actually do your BEST work. That is sad because you never show what you are TRULY capable of.

I just got a little upset writing that because I was describing myself.

I played hockey at Harvard, I had a lot of injuries and I struggled from day one until graduation. Actually, wayyy past graduation because not being on top of my school work not only hindered my college experience, it negatively impacted my future! You can read my story here.


Your GPA matters!

There are almost four million college graduates every year. And guess what. They will all be looking for a job at the same time as you!

And how do you think that companies sift through thousands, even tens of thousands of resumes? GPA!

Your GPA doesn’t necessarily reflect whether you’re smart or not, but it reflects your attitude. And it matters! It shows that you were able to buckle down, get organized, and get stuff done.


How to get a 4.0 GPA?

It all starts with your time and workload management. You need to give yourself enough time to do and learn everything. It’s as simple as that.

And for this reason, we built Shovel. It is the only Study Planner that compares your available study time with the time you need for each task.

Shovel always knows if you’ll have enough time to get everything done on time or if you need to adjust your schedule.


Would you play hockey with a lacrosse stick?

I don’t think so. You’d suck! So why would you do it with something as important as your studies?

Not using the right tool won’t cut it anymore. Your life is on the line. Your grades will dictate your internship, which will dictate what job you’ll get or which graduate school you’ll get into, which will dictate if you’ll be able to pursue what you want to do in life. I’m not making this up btw!

For example, if you want to be an orthopedic surgeon, you have to display excellence from high school all the way throughout medical school to be considered for a residency as an orthopedic surgeon.

And since so much is on the line, you should give yourself every edge you can. And Shovel is that edge. It was built for students. Not managers, not parents to keep track of their kids’ schedules. FOR STUDENTS!


How does Shovel work?

Unlike other calendars and to-do lists, Shovel cares about the empty blocks in your schedule because as a student, that’s when you can study. It adds them up and compares them to the time it will take you to do each individual task, which is also unique to Shovel.

Then you can plan what task you’ll work on, when, and for how long. You’ll always know if you can get everything done and also exactly when you’ll get it done.

You’ll be able to plan like never before!

You’ll know that you can go out  because your Cushion on every task is green. And it’s gonna be easy for you to say NO to hanging out because you’ll see that if you sacrifice a study time block that you won’t be able to get something done. It’s very simple with Shovel. It does the Math for you whether you can or can’t do something.

We want you to party, but we also want you to be informed so that you can party stress-free.
