If you are a coaching client of mine, you know how much I love calendars and scheduling!
Calendars not only give us a sense of time, but more importantly, it shows us how essential it is to make use of that limited time to achieve our goals.
This is why scheduling is fundamental to productivity.
Scheduling allows you to make sure that you can get the right things done on time.
New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff likes to say, “The battle for happiness begins on the pages of our calendars.”
This is true in all aspects of our life.
There’s only so much you can do in 24 hours, but if you plan and schedule them, you’ll actually get them done.
So many business owners like to make plans.
They list down the things they want to do, but so few actually take the time to schedule their activities.
Planning is only half the action.
Once you have a plan, schedule your tasks so you can make room for any interruptions that may come your way.
Scheduling does so much for you.
When you schedule your tasks, you find out which of your plans can be achieved realistically with the time available to you.
Because of this, you can set your priorities on these three kinds of tasks:
- Tasks that are critical to achieving your goals;
- Tasks that are irrelevant; and
- Tasks that are unexpected.
As an added bonus, you can also make more time for your family and other activities, thus giving you the necessary work-life balance you need.
Scheduling isn’t rocket science.
You just need to allot the time you are going to give to your work, then identify the tasks that are important so you can make them your top priority.
This may seem challenging at first, but with proper business coaching, you can get better at scheduling so you can get more things done.
This is because a professional business coach can help you see which things you need to prioritize.
This enables you to focus your time and effort on what really matters.
