Your Calendar Hates You.

So, our calendars hate us. We live and die by those calendars, and they aren’t being used to their fullest extent.

So what can we do?

I’ve tried:

  • Pomodoro for evertyhing (and finding windows on my calendar for pomodoros)
  • Putting everything, including tasks/projects on my calendar
  • Squeezing time in on the margins (IE, 30 minutes of studying over my morning tea, scheduled clear-my-brain runs)
  • Declining meetings that I didn’t have a clear purpose or value add.
  • Boundaries between work/school/home, and trying to focus in those windows on each.

What amazing calendar hacks, or integrations with project management systems have you tried, and better yet, have you adopted?
