Intentional Planning

Intentional planning helps us achieve our goals and reduce anxiety. Follow the 4-step STAR method:

  • S- Strategy: Review your upcoming goals.
  • T-Tasks: Clarify and identify what tasks are to be done to achieve those goals, and prioritize them.
  • A- Allocate: Resources like time and energy are limited. Allocate your tasks in a way that is least cognitively demanding, takes the least amount of time, and is yet having the maximum impact. Improvise as you go.
  • R-Results: Say no to unnecessary requests, respecting your time. But if you say Yes to a request, follow it through. Work for yourself and not for obligations.

"A 40 hour time-blocked work week, I estimate, produces the same amount of output as a 60+ hour work week pursued without structure."
