Don't you think it's incredible that so many people are not performing what they really want to do with their time? Is it because people don't bother to plan, and then never ever take action? If this sounds like currently you, then this article will show you 3 simple ways for you to start to better manage your time using desktop computer calendars.
By repeating them you 'introduce' them into your own daily activities. Always use your Mac Desktop Calendar 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 approach is to make notes about future plans and appointments 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 know a specific date for a project, to jot it down immediately.
This is an excellent habit to fall into, and the quickest way to learn to do this habit is by doing it often, perhaps for 30 days (or longer). It'll then turn into 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 before.' This is another habit that will feel strange until mastered, until it's part of your daily planning process. Pick a specific time every day and resolve to accomplish the next days planning when that time crops up.
The great thing about this is it lets your subconscious thoughts turn over the projects you've written down, during the night. Sometimes you'll wake 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 computer calendar successfully is by creating in a due date. Write the deadline onto the calendar itself. By having a deadline you tend to force yourself to get issues done quicker, and put a specific degree of urgency on projects.
You know this works well - think about when you have to catch a flight somewhere. You know 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 difficulties you might be confronted with on the way.
Having a due date gives you an urgency and pushes you to get the goal or project done in the allotted time.
The routines above are habits which will feel rather uncomfortable at first. Remember, all things in hard prior to it's easy. Changing habits takes some real exercise to get correct. The best way is by repeating the actions every day for a 30 days!
