Daily Reality Continued

“The alternative to the feckless to-do list is what I call ‘living in your calendar.’ That means taking your tasks off the to-do list, estimating how much time each of them will consume, and transferring them to your calendar.” – Daniel Markovitz

I’ve been ‘living in my calendar’ for 18 months now – since I first drew up the Daily Reality Planner. I’ve found it to be an excellent tool to set reasonable expectations (if only for myself).

Even though not everything I schedule needs to be done at that specific time – making that declaration helps me a) commit to it and b) mentally prepare for doing it.

Good things.
