Plan your day hour by hour
Sounds like hard work doesn’t it? Well guess what? Reality check it, it is hard! It’s incredibly hard to plan your day and stick to it rigidly when so much can happen in 24hours. So many things change during the day and you are forced to adapt to those situations, but it’s how you react to what happens that truly counts. But if you are sitting down the night before and planning what you are going to do hour by hour, you give your day structure, you know what you have to do and you get it done. Sit down and write out all of the things that you need to do, the daily activities and the odd things that crop up too, work related and personal, then pencil them into your diary when you are going to complete those tasks. If you don’t get everything done that’s absolutely fine, I don’t always get everything completed when I say I’m going to complete it but I make a note of what needs to be followed up on, then I can simply slot it into the next day and get it finished then. Plan your day or I promise you now, your day will run you and you’ll have nothing to show for it.
