The best part of planning the day is that you’re not wasting time with anxiety about when you will get it all done.
Here is how to do it:
Make a List Write down all the things in your head. This only takes a minute or two
Decide How Long Each Thing Takes Group together tasks that will take 15 minutes or less. For all the others, write down on your list how long each will take
Determine Your Open Time Slots of The Day Find the times that you have available for focused work
Schedule Each Activity Finally, figure out the best time slot for each activity. For me, whatever feels most urgent or necessary, I schedule it first
Take a Deep Breath. Then Execute And there is your day. From beginning to end, the entire day takes about 20 minutes to schedule. And now you don’t have to spend time worrying about it. Most importantly, this day no longer overwhelms you. Your mind is not racing. You can focus on execution
