If this is currently you, then this article will show you 3 simple ways you can start to much better manage your time and effort using desktop computer calendars.
By repeating them you 'introduce' them into your own daily activities. Always use your Mac Calendar Wallpaper to your advantage. After all, these photo calendars are right here to help you to better manage YOUR time!
So then, using a schedule, how can you start to 'super manage' your time?
1: The first strategy is to make notes about future programs and appointments right on your desk calendar. (You can also accomplish this if you have a desktop calendar on your PC or Mac, or if you have a company diary or business calendar). The key is, when you are aware a specific date for a project, to jot it down immediately.
This is a good habit to fall into, as well as the quickest way to learn to get this done habit is simply by doing it often, perhaps for 30 days (or longer). It'll then turn into a normal a part of your daily planning or every week planning procedure.
2: Another way to better handle your time would be to simply 'plan the night before.' 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 accomplish the next days planning when that time crops up.
The fantastic thing about this is it lets your subconscious mind turn over the projects you've written down, during the night. Occasionally you'll get up in the morning and know exactly how you can approach or work through an otherwise difficult goal. You'll find it really helps to give yourself some 'mental' planning space.
3: The third way to use a desktop calendar effectively is by creating in a due date. Write the deadline to the calendar alone. By having a due date you often force you to ultimately get issues done quicker, and put a specific degree of urgency on jobs.
You know this works well - think about if you need to catch your flight somewhere. You understand you have to be in the airport in a certain time - or you'll skip your flight. So you start thinking about all the things you need to do, and what challenges you might be faced with on the way.
Having a deadline gives you an urgency and pushes you to get the objective or task done in the allotted time.
The routines above are habits which will feel rather uncomfortable at first. Remember, everything in hard prior to it's simple. Changing habits takes some real practice to get correct. The best way is simply by repeating the actions each day for a month!
