We have more tasks to do than time, that is something that will happen very often if not all the time. This is why prioritizing tasks is one of the most important parts of building a plan for the day or action plan for a project, by far my favorite method is using the “Eisenhower Matrix” that is attributed based to a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower
Improving something about ourselves, or about a process can be hard, especially when we want to change something big. The best way to get started is to think about how we can split it into systems that are little constant gains which added over time generate a big impact.
Many people only see the big bang because it is obvious but very few notice that to get to that moment of great success or big achievement, many little steps, and decisions had to be made.
When things get difficult (and they will get hard), then go back to the fundamental of WHY you started.
We all have a reason why we start our paths, why we switch lanes and why we took turns on the crossroads, the most important part to avoid losing our way is to have the reason why started very clear.
Planning the day is perhaps the habit that has more impact on my life, and is not complicated but it requires perseverance, consistency, and being intentional.
The first step to fully plan your day is to create a morning routine and I started with habit by reinforcing it by writing a draft the previous night. I do it at night mostly because I have more time at the end of the day, nights are usually a quiet time just before going to bed, and important with fewer interruptions from the daily light.
Music is a powerful motivator. It has the ability to affect your mood, a song can make you happy or sad and my tip is it can inject energy too. Use it to your favor to boost your motivation and time activities.
A long term review…
In the current state of the web, creating accounts and saving passwords is an everyday problem and I think a password manager is something you need to have to avoid typing the same password on every site which could lead to a security problem if one site is compromised. This is resolved by many apps, but my favorite is Enpass (and this is not a sponsored review, I truly love this app).
