Today’s highly effective productivity hack: Assign each task a time on your schedule!
In order to be highly productive, understand that task lists by themselves, are useless. They’re just the first step. The next step? Assign each task a time on your schedule!
Why? It helps you be realistic about what you can get done—and it allows you to do tasks when it’s most effective, not just because it’s third on your to-do list
Assigning work to specific times reduces the urge to procrastinate.
You no longer have to decide what to do during a given period—the decision is already made!
However, you might be setting yourself up for failure if you don’t consider how long things actually take—in fact, it’s smart to build possible interruptions into your schedule.
Often, the best time to schedule your tasks is when you’re planning and prioritizing for the week. PlanPlus Online takes you step-by-step through that process. For more information on the planner the most productive people use, click here.
