You can achieve a more organized life in 5 minute increments.
Good time management is accomplished in small bits of time. The exercise of mapping out a daily/weekly/monthly plan is important to stay on track.
Successful people plan their time by writing everything down. But it’s hard for some to understand. I get it. Time is such an abstract idea. It’s hard to do. How long will each task take? How about the commute? What can you do while you are waiting for the meeting to begin? I tell my clients that a successfully calendar is ‘full’ of notes.
Whether you use a paper calendar or an electronic version practice note everything you want to accomplish in your calendar. It is very important to schedule how long each task will take. By sitting down in the morning (or the night before) and mapping out your day, you are less likely to be surprised with extra to-dos and you will also accomplish a lot more. It’s like making several appointments with yourself in one day.
As you get comfortable with this exercise, you’ll find that it will only take 5 minutes. Plan your day, then follow the plan.
Try it – prioritizing organizing in 5 minutes.
