If this is currently you, then this short article will show you 3 simple ways you can start to better manage your time and effort using desktop computer calendars.
By repeating them you 'introduce' them into your own daily activities. Always use your Free Mac Blotter Calendar to your advantage. After all, these calendars are here to help you to improve manage Your time and effort!
So then, using a calendar, how can you start to 'super manage' your time?
1: The first approach is to make notes about future plans and appointments right onto your desk calendar. (You can also do this if you have a desktop calendar on your PC or Mac, or if you have a business diary or business schedule). The key is, when you are aware a specific day for a project, to write it down immediately.
This is a good habit to fall into, and the quickest method to learn to get this done habit is simply by doing it often, perhaps for 30 days (or longer). It'll then become a normal part of your daily preparing or every week planning process.
2: Another way to better manage your time would be to simply 'plan the night prior to.' This is another habit that will really feel strange till mastered, until it's part of your daily preparing process. Choose a specific time every day and resolve to do the next days planning when that time plants up.
The fantastic thing about this is that it lets your subconscious mind turn on the projects you've written down, during the night. Sometimes you'll get up in the morning and know exactly how to approach or work through an otherwise challenging goal. You'll find it can help to give yourself some 'mental' preparing space.
3: The third way to use a desktop calendar successfully is by writing in a deadline. Write the deadline to the calendar itself. By having a deadline you often force yourself to get issues done faster, and put a certain degree of urgency on jobs.
You know this works well - think about when you have to catch your flight somewhere. You understand you have to be at the airport in a certain time - or you'll miss your airline flight. So you start thinking about all the things you need to do, and what difficulties you might be faced with on the way.
Having a due date gives you an urgency and pushes you to get the goal or task done in the allotted time.
The activities above are habits which will feel rather uncomfortable in the beginning. Remember, everything in hard prior to it's easy. Changing routines takes some real practice to get right. The best way is simply by repeating the actions every day for a 30 days!
