Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
Creating and sticking to a schedule—both in your personal and professional life—is the best way to manage your time and ensure you fit everything you need (and want!) to do into your daily life.
But schedules can be challenging, especially if time management isn’t one of your strong suits.
And to add to the confusion, what is an effective schedule anyway?
Your daily schedule is like your blueprint for the day. It keeps you on track and helps you make the most out of your time.
Not only that, but schedules allow you to identify where the “time sucks” are. Think of these as areas that are draining your time, and you need to get rid of (we’re looking at you, mindless social media scrolling).
If you want to be efficient on anything?
Managing your time is the key to finishing everything and hitting the target 100%.
Manage your Schedule, or your Unorganized Self will Manage you!
1. Perform a Time Inventory
You can use Digital Planners available in the Market to Track Down what are you doing every day, block a specific amount of time on these activities. If you are not a techie, you can use the good old-fashioned Planners.
2. List your daily/weekly/monthly priorities
This is going on the Macro Level of Things, instead of counting minutes and hours, you must look at your schedule from a birds-eye view too.
3. Invest in a Daily Planner
If Planners are too expensive for you, you can create your own using templates from Canva.
Planners help hold you accountable; if you have written reminders of where you’re supposed to be and what you’re supposed to be doing, it’s more challenging to ignore.
Planners are also helpful because they help keep you organized.
Instead of having your schedule spread out over multiple devices, calendars, and post-it notes spread across your office, a planner organizes all your daily to-do’s in one, easy-to-manage place.
Clearly, if you want to build an effective daily schedule, you need a planner. But what, exactly, do you need to include in that planner?
Here’s an outline of the five must-have’s to include on each task in your daily planner schedule:
Is there a way to keep on top of your to-do list?
Color coding can be used to distinguish between distinct commitments. Work commitments, for example, could be highlighted in pink, family commitments in yellow, and personal commitments in blue. That way, you'll be able to see right away what kinds of things are on your to-do list for the day—and plan accordingly.
Folding over each page when you're done with it is another technique to keep your planner orderly.
