Visually Map Your Time And Tasks

Map your day by the hour and review it throughout the day to help you organize your time. That visual cue will help you pace your day and budget your time appropriately. To do that:

  • Use free hours effectively by ranking your task list visually.
  • Try color coding your list according to priority, with four or five levels of urgency.
  • Do the essential, time-sensitive tasks early in the week while you're fresh, then save the optional ones for later.
