Learning how to plan your day has changed my life in a way I never imagined. I thought I was already quite productive and already knew what I wanted to do in a day more or less.
Plus, when planning for the day, you know exactly when you will do what activity. This means no more stressing out about when things will get done. It’s already planned!
Take out a notebook or an app and start writing. What things do you want to do today? What do you want to focus on?
Your result should be related to your yearly or monthly goals. These are the things that are important to you, so you want to work on them on a consistent basis.
Under your result, you write down the reasons why you want it. This will motivate you further to achieve what you want and go for the outcome.
This action plan is going to be based on all the items you wrote down. Organize the actions for the results and purpose you want.
Next to your massive action list, prioritize your tasks. Write down 1 to the most important activity, a 2 for the most important after that, and so on.
Scheduling gives you a direction for the day. When you don’t schedule, it’s easy to get distracted or go overtime with activities that prevent you from going forward.
