Plan Tomorrow Today
When you can't think straight it's so important to plan before you move into action. That way, you won't make hasty decisions or let others pull you off course. The irony is that when we're feeling frazzled is precisely the time when we avoid planning because we haven't the time. One way to increase your sense of control and add a little order to your day is to make a habit of planning your tomorrow at the end of today.
- At the end of today, review all that you have accomplished. Then write out your plan for tomorrow: what has to be done, when, and about how long each project will take. In what order should you tackle each project? When will you schedule in a quick renewal break? Any pre-appointments you need to work in? Don't forget to schedule in some "emergency response" time. If you're like most of us, you'll need it.
