Paper Calendar

The easiest way to organize your day is a good paper calendar.

Divide it into four sections.

  • The top left section is your running to do list for the day. 
  • The top right section is the running grocery list.
  • The bottom left is for notes such as calls made, who you spoke to and appointment dates. 
  • The bottom right is whatever you need to move to another day.

Sort At The Source

  • Sync your to-do list with your mobile phone.
  • Write down the three most important tasks.
