The present simple in Italian is fairly similar to English and other languages. It's used for expressing present actions. But it can also be used for expressing the future!

Penso a cosa posso fare I think about what I can do

Domani lo faccio. Tomorrow I'll do it.

In order to conjugate it, you need to change the ending part of the verb for the most part. You can see the conjugation here together with many other things: Italian Grammar Overview
