To-do’s ❤ Calendar

A sexier approach to time management

Our goals are never as simple as a to-do list, and our time is never as simple as a calendar. With hundreds of great productivity apps on the market we often find ourselves juggling all of those tasks, goals, habits, events and meetings.

We love task management apps, but they lack the aspect of time management. Just as much, we love our calendars, but they lack the aspects of task management.

An elegant solution

Designing a system that lets you schedule your tasks into your calendar is not an easy task, but yields brilliant results. Imagine allocating the right time and order to each of your tasks, so you can visualize your time. Wouldn’t that make you a much more effective planner?

You would have a predefined plan of action that is written in time. It sets the right mindset. It boosts motivation. It reduces stress levels, as you know you’ll have enough time to check everything off before the deadline. It reduces procrastination. Overall, such time/task management approach gets you into a productive, and peaceful, flow.

How it works in real life

I personally have been doing it for quite some time now and it transformed the way I live life and achieve my goals. I get tasks from my iOS Reminders and schedule them into my Calendar with drag & drop. Thats it. Each scheduled task has an allocated time. As simple as it sounds, it’s very very effective. Making my weekly schedule requires just about 2 minutes of drag & drop and adjustments are just as seamless. Here’s a visual example:

Each of us has a different system to get things done and that’s okay. I urge you to try it out for yourself.
