You Need To Know This--Planning Your Day Has Great Value!
You’ve just awakened and are wondering how to spend your day. How much or how little you get done today depends on what you have planned or for that matter planned for you.
There is a certain luxury of waking up and not having any plans for the day is something some people dream of and to an extent, would probably attempt to make it a reality as much as possible on weekends and during the holidays; however, is that an effective use of your time? Here this!
"the most effective way to become a productive person is to not waste the day by having no goals or plans for it."
Let explain using an economic example. Most of us receive financial compensation. Do we not plan or budget your monies to your specific areas.
Financial planning is a necessary step that people take by keeping track of every dollar they spend so they can see where their money is going goes each week, month and years.
With this information, people can plan where they can cut spending out of their budget and use that money to pay for unexpected bills or to save for when it’s needed, i.e. retirement.
The value of our economic plan is huge. But taking it further, if we prize our time, in the same way, like our money, we will become effective in our work and our home life. We will have many tasks to juggle, but remember the quote above, "the most effective way to become a productive person is not to waste the day by having no goals or plans for it."
Get into the habit of planning your days! Nightly, before you go to bed, make a mental note of the things you know you need to do and then create a plan of action.
Of course, writing your plans down helps you keep track and you are less likely to forget them. Multi-task (to perform two or more task simultaneously) where possible so you can achieve two or more things at once.
Include your time in your plan. You are important. Take care of yourself! Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of everyone else--achieve life balance.
Does this sound unnecessarily laborious? Look at the benefits you gain! There is nothing more satisfying than to come to the end of the day and see what was on the to-do list at the beginning of the day and see that list crossed--Planning Equals Accomplishment-PEA!
When you create an ordered life you open the door for more freedom for you. You have more time for you and the ones that are closet to you. It's a win-win.
For me, I am able to incorporate 30 minutes of exercise, whereas, without a plan, I invariably stated I have no time to exercise.
And most of us know how valuable exercise in reducing stress and a healthier life. Try it for a few days and watch your life skyrocket with accomplishments.
