New digs -Live in your Calendar

Rip up your to-do list. Yes, that's right. Stop writing never-ending to-do bullets and transferring zombie tasks from one list to the next. Instead, make an appointment with yourself to complete each task. Your chores all have deadlines, so, schedule when you need to work on them in order to hit the deadline. Simples. It's a powerful time hack. No new Apps, just use your schedule or good old diary.

Consider this. If you don't allocate time to your tasks, you'll never know how much working capacity you truly have in the coming week. You may be tempted to take on more than you can possibly manage. It's a fast track to overwhelm and the burning of midnight oil to meet deadlines and promises you should never have made.

We do crazy things - like promising to hit a deadline for the end of the week when we don't really know how much time all the other items on our to-do list will take? The to-do list lacks the all-important dimension of Time. Time is your most precious resource. Even if you scribble duration estimates against your tasks - how do they fit with your other commitments? How do they all add up?

In our 90 Day Accelerator programme., we've had some fab discussions about "living in your calendar" and those who are new to the practice are boosting their productivity and gaining control over their week.

Give it a try. Come along to one of our Tuesday Mastermind sessions and let us know how it went!
