Building up good organization and planning habits is hard work. That's why so many people struggle with planning ahead.
Don't get discouraged! It can take awhile to find out the right way to use myHomework that fits your world.
If you're struggling with your use of myHomework, here is our advice on how to get a fresh start and try to turn things around.
Starting fresh with the app in appearance and a clean slate on what to do is a great first step in recommitting yourself to being organized.
The steps below are how we recommend going about getting a fresh start with the app.
We recommend using one of the website, chrome, windows, mac or iPad apps which all have the options pictured below available.

Change your picture.
Use something different. Consider using something fun, funny or weird to mix things up.
Change the theme

This option is found in the Calendar Settings area of the apps.
Explore the additional options available for your device(s) at /apps.
The myHomework widgets or external calendar options are helpful to many.
In addition to getting a fresh start with how the app looks, it's important to think about why the way you were using it in the past wasn't helping you succeed.
Why did you stop using myHomework? What problems are you having with getting things done or in getting good grades that you would like to correct?
