If you are a regular, you know that I semi-regularly post one of my daily schedules. I don’t often make them anymore. They are an example of a skill that I have drilled for so long that I have internalized it for all but the most intense days. This week is intense; not many clients/meeting, but soooo much to do. I need to maximize my productivity, which means making good decisions about how I spend my time and on what. So, I fall back on my tried and true scheduling.
- My having done some things the night before
- Dealing with two serous tantrums by my six-year-old that were “unscheduled”
- An hour long meeting that I didn’t think I was going to have to attend… that I was wrong about
- Some important revelations about priorities that caused me reevaluate why I had put certain things on this schedule in the first place
- I got the number one personal thing done on my list
- Once I reevaluated, I got a good hour and a half of work done on my number one work priority.
- Around three-and-a-half hours of meetings and two hours of parenting that feels really successful.
- The only thing I really missed was not working out because my workout was gardening that got cancelled. But that was also an active choice later in the day.
