Notepads in The Scheduling boxset
The walk planner lets you schedule your time in two hour block, colour coded to help you work out when you have the most energy in the day. If you’re a morning person, don’t try to do much after 9pm.
The run planner is for days where you need to get lots done, but in order to do it effectively, you also need to remember to take breaks. Schedule what you’re going to do during each 5-10 minute break to get away from your desk so that you don’t just end up browsing social media.
This notepad helps you get an overview of your week and plan ahead. The notepad organises your days into named parts of the day, morning, early, late, afternoon .etc. Different people divide up the day at different times so this makes it easier to jot down events that are still a bit up in the air.
Don’t look at your to do list first thing in the morning. You’ll spend half an hour trying to work out what to do next and end up with decision fatigue before your coffee has cooled. Write yourself a daily priority list every night before you go to sleep so that you know what you need to do the next day. You can still keep the scary to do list, just don’t look at it first thing in the morning…
In the morning you’re fresh and have the most energy for tackling complex tasks. As the day goes on you start to tire our, get bored easily, and procrastinate. So it makes sense to get the tasks that require long period of sustained concentration out of the way first, and then schedule tasks that get shorter and shorter as the day progresses. We took inspiration from Zeno’s paradox with this one.
