Scheduling Your Day for Success
Time is our most precious commodity.
It is valuable.
So many of us get caught up in time, and fail to efficiently tackle our busy personal and professional schedules.
Is it possible to squeeze the most success out of your day as much as you possibly can?
With the help of these few tips, managing your time and building a schedule for success can be attainable.
Chunking your time
Organize your daily tasks with the concept of time chunking. Time chunking is defined as focusing all of your attention on a specific task for a certain amount of time.
Organize all of your similar activities at one time to avoid losing focus and productivity.
Ninety-minute chunks in particular allow for the highest levels of productivity. Plan and chunk what time frames work best for you. Write it down, plan out the chunks in your calendar or on your phone. Add alerts to your calendar app or set reminders to grab your attention and make you switch gears.
Break your day down into 90-minute chunks and begin to accomplish one task at a time. Rather than trying to multitask or attempt to complete everything at once, devote all of your time and attention to one task before moving on to the next.
People who are bombarded with multiple tasks and endless information at once do not pay attention and suffer when trying to switch from one task to another. Resulting in nothing ever getting done after hours of scrambling.
After the 90-minute chunk, take a brain break. Refuel and recharge. Minimizes distractions and start new on your next 90-minute chunk.
Setting goals for success
Time-chunking is simply not possible without laying out what your goals are to be for the day, week, month and beyond. These tasks are tied to your goals.
Go into scheduling your 90-minute chunks with a clear vision of what you would like the outcome to be.
What are you striving for? What do you want to get accomplished in the end?
Without setting clear and concise goals, you might miss the entire point of dividing up your time. With no purpose you will have no clear mindset on what it is you are working towards.
Goals help guide you to productivity and make sure your valuable time is not being wasted.
