Part 3: How should I plan my day?

Side effects of planning include feeling calm & productive. If that sounds like something you are after, check out these 3 ideas and see if they help you with procrastination too 👇

Idea 1. Take 5 minutes to..

Start your day with a to-do list of the main tasks that you want to accomplish. I know you know it, but instead take 5 minutes and write it down. If you used my monthly or weekly plan you know what your main goals are and now you can break it down into actionable & specific tasks! For eg. if my weekly goal was organizing a gamified networking event, my to-do list will have tasks such as ‘create games for the event’ and ‘prepare email with information about the event’ etc.

Idea 2. Deep focus or an easy task?

Science says that we can do deep work for 4-5 hours. I'm most productive in the morning, so I use those hours for focused work and the other part of the day for easier administrative tasks. Now look at your list and categorize ‘deep focus’ or ‘other’. Bonus: If you followed my weekly plan tips then you already blocked time for those important deep-focus tasks. If not, book time in your calendar now.

Idea 3. Use Trello to create 'to-do list, doing, done list'.

There is something about seeing the outline of your process that helps with organization. Trello app is free and it makes it very easy to use Kanban lean planning. This way you can stay on top of your work with 3 lists: ‘to-do’, ‘doing’ and ‘done’. That's it, now you are ready to work.

Planning is like magic, but if you haven’t tried any of these I humbly suggest starting with one of these ideas. Test it, and see if it brings more ease into your day.
