We spoke to Graham Allcott, he's a productivity expert - which basically means he's really good at being organised. He even calls himself a 'productivity ninja'!

Graham told Newsround: "Find a corner in your room that's going to be your dedicated place where you do your work.

"Put your phone away. Give it to one of your parents or lock it in a drawer."

What about wearing school uniform? Graham reckons this is a great idea.
