If you want to get more done, and who these days doesn’t, you need to think more about scheduling your day to make it happen.
Alexandria Blaelock, designer of Ms Blaelocks’s Monthly Planning Calendar says, “every day gives you the opportunity to get a little closer to your goals, but that won’t happen by accident. You need to take conscious steps towards them.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for scheduling your day :
- Start with one important task: It’s too easy to get to the end of the day and feel like you got nothing done. Give yourself just one thing you must get done, and do that first.
- Manage your priorities: If you’re like most people, you probably have a long to-do list. Take a look through it to see what’s important, and what’s urgent, and do those next.
- Categorise your to-dos: Sometimes breaking your list into categories, such as health, board meeting, or kids can help you keep on top of tasks that might otherwise overheat on the backburner.
- Save some uncommitted time: Give your self some leeway with uncommitted time. You’ll use this when a task runs over, or something unexpected comes up.
- Include a review: Allow a little time at the end of the day to asses how you got on, and to start scheduling the next day so you can get off to a good start.
Alexandria’s tips on scheduling your day will help you get the important tasks done, and maybe a little more as well.
