Just watched this video about time management. It is fairly comprehensive — addressing several different aspects of time management and makes some great points!
It is important to figure out how to get through this. I took away setting up your environment for success (distractions out of the way — including computer windows! Prompts for what you should be doing). Calling someone is great for getting unstuck. I know that when I am procrastinating I am usually really into the procrastination activity, so I don’t do this — I am going to try!
There is a place for flow, but you can also be doing the wrong thing very well during flow. What can you put in place to notice time passing? I take a 5-min break every half hour.
Mechanics of Planning/Tracking
This is your:
- Todo list
- Long-term planning (priorities/goal-setting
What I realized is that the connection between my long-term planning and my calendar/todo list is very weak and unintentional!
