Don't you think it's amazing that so many people are not doing what they actually want to do with their time? Is this because people don't bother to organize, and then never take action? 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 in your own daily activities. Always use your Free Mac Blotter Calendar to your advantage. In the end, these calendars are here to help you to better manage YOUR time!
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 meetings right on your desk schedule. (You can also accomplish this if you have a desktop schedule on your PC or Mac, or if you have a company diary or business schedule). The key is, when you are aware a specific day for a task, to jot it down immediately.
This is an excellent habit to fall into, as well as the quickest way to learn to do this habit is by doing it often, perhaps for 30 days (or longer). It'll then become a normal a part of your daily preparing or every week planning procedure.
2: Another way to better manage your time is to simply 'plan the night prior to.' This really is another routine that will feel strange until mastered, until it's a part of your daily preparing process. Pick a specific time every day and resolve to do the next days planning when that time plants up.
The fantastic thing about this is it lets your subconscious mind turn over the projects you've written lower, during the night. Occasionally you'll wake up in the morning and know exactly how to approach or work through an otherwise difficult goal. You'll find it can help to give yourself some 'mental' planning space.
3: The third way to use a desktop calendar successfully is by creating in a deadline. Write the deadline to the calendar alone. By having a deadline you often force you to ultimately get things done faster, and put a specific degree of urgency on projects.
You know this works well - think about when you have to catch your flight somewhere. You know you have to be at the airport in a certain time - or you'll miss your flight. So you begin thinking about all the things you need to do, and what difficulties you might be confronted with on the way.
Having a deadline gives you an urgency and pushes you to get the objective or project done in the allotted time.
The activities above are habits which will feel rather uncomfortable in the beginning. Remember, everything in hard before it's simple. Changing habits takes some real exercise to get right. The best way is simply by repeating the actions every day for a 30 days!
