Time for me to reveal a few of my scheduling life hacks! Trust me, if you asked my friends and family, they are surprised that I haven’t forgotten to pick up my kids from school with all of the responsibilities that I have going on. This episode will tell you how I keep myself organized!
- Check in with myself regularly - I know what time of the day I do my best work. For me, I work best between 10 am to 2 pm…ask yourself what time of the day best suits your energy rhythm. Are there specific times of the day that you are more creative and will it serve you and your business to save “creative time” in your schedule?
- Organize my schedule the night before - I literally sit down at night, before the next morning start, and ensure I have studied my calendar to understand what to expect regarding deliverables and meetings. I will take my digital calendar commitments and copy these into my paper agenda to prime and prep myself psychologically for the next day
- Block my schedule to complete deliverables each day. One deliverable is actually answering all my emails. I will only complete 3 big items each day. To qualify a task as one of the “big 3”, the item must take more than 30 minutes to complete and require a greater level of attention to execute. And if you’re a time optimist and underestimate the time it takes to complete a task, multiply the time by 2 when estimating your time block length.
