It often seems there is too much to do and not enough time to do it in. One of the best ways to keep your day on track is to use an Ideal Day framework.
Here are Blaelock’s tips for developing your Ideal Day:
- Work out your vision of the future: Having a clear picture of what you want your future to look like will help you get where you want to be. A dairy farmer is going to do very different things to a partner in a law firm.
- Take account of your priorities: Whether we’ve thought formally about it or not, we’ve all set priorities. In general, family comes first, so plan your day to ensure your first priority is actually taken care of first.
- Work with your chronotype: If you’re a morning person, do your analytic or most important work in the morning and creative (or second most important) in the afternoon. If you’re a night owl, do the opposite.
- Set start and finish times: It’s often easier to get things done when you have a deadline. Especially when it’s something firm like the train home or the childcare centre closing. Don’t be tempted to make it as long as possible, remember it’s your Ideal Day, not the worst possible.
- Don’t forget your commute: Your commute is the transition between your work and your life. Use the time to let go of your work concerns and start planning to enjoy the time with your family.
