Welcome to The Planning Corner – a new weekly post designed to help you simplify your planning life!
Each week, I’ll drop a super quick, easy to implement tip right here on the blog! My hope is that these posts will equip you to plan with a little more simplicity + skill.
Ready for today’s edition? Let’s talk HOURLY PLANNING!
Let’s talk HOURLY PLANNING!
Who is it for?
Anyone who needs to see their day organized by the actual time of day.
How does it work?
1. Start either the night before, or first thing in the morning. Write out a list of your awake hours.
2. Plug in any appointments and priority tasks FIRST.
3. Fill in the rest of your time with tasks that you’d like to accomplish today (but aren’t as crucial as the priority tasks).
👉🏻 Pro tip: Do NOT plan out every hour of the day! Leave some margin, especially around those appointments and priority tasks. Margin allows space for life to happen – a kid can’t find a shoe, you all wake up late, dinner burns – without completely needing to throw your priorities out the window for the day. Margin is the thing that keeps you sane, even when the day feel busy!
