You could say something like: Today I accomplished my schoolwork and little else. With this statement, I am saying I did my schoolwork but I accomplished a few other things that were not important enough to mention.

examples: "there is little else I can do" "there is little else that can be done" "there is little else he/she/we/they can do" "there is little else that [x] could have been done" where there is [X] you can put I/you/we/they It basically means you have tried everything possible or that you can think of, there is nothing else that can be. A good example of using this is when a person is terminally ill and the doctors decide to do no more.
