- A free block is essential for last minute requests or to perform a task that could not be performed because of something unexpected;
- Include personal objectives, they are as important (if not more) as your professional planning. Writing down in your agenda to call an old friend gives you the time to finally do it!
How are you feeling as you are placing things in your planner? As soon as you feel uncomfortable, stop and ask yourself the following question: how can I turn this task into something that brings me pleasure? A task that we don’t like is usually the one that we postpone…and after that, you can forget about the sense of accomplishment and peace of mind.
Planning can save a lot of time but it can become hard to bear. Find your balance according to your personality. Make room for spontaneity and don’t blame yourself if you don’t follow your schedule now and again. Treat yourself!
