If I don’t have a plan I am half as productive as I could be.
I don’t mean a schedule that breaks down your day into 15-minute blocks (I’ve tried that. It was miserable.) but rather a plan for the week.
Having a list of what you wish to accomplish that week gives you direction and helps you get to work.
After establishing what needs to be done that week, you build a loose daily schedule of the tasks you need to complete to stay on course and complete the week of work.
Productive weeks turn into productive months turn into productive years.
