How to Get More Done, Efficiently: Following A Schedule
Before writing your schedule, we have to clear out the clutter
And the clutter is the running to-do list you've been storing in your brain.
The laundry that needs to be done. The vet appointments that need to be made. The subscription service you meant to cancel two years ago.
You've got to get them out of your head and on to paper. The first list will be your longest if you do this process weekly. If not, the list will pile up again.
Now that you have your list, it's time to set a goal. Goals act as a filter for how you decide what to do (and what NOT to do).
After you have your goal, highlight the items that are related to your goal in any way as well as time-sensitive items.
For only those highlighted items, decide how long each thing will take, because things take as long as you allow them to take. The sweet spot is an amount of time that will require you to be focused in order to get it done.
Too much time begs for procrastination, too little time leads to overwhelm.
Decide what day/time you'll do each thing and put it in your calendar. If you complete this process weekly, you'll be well on your way to spending your time more efficiently and getting closer to your goal.
