Be honest with yourself! Isn’t that one of the keys of life? I know that you want to get a lot done within the day and meet certain goals, but what good are you doing yourself if you’re not being realistic? If you over-schedule, you won’t meet those deadlines anyway.
Here’s a tip:
1. Make a list of the usual tasks that you fulfill each day.
2. Go through a timing trial period. (Complete each task as you would on a regular day, but TIME IT this time around) Timing each task will help you get an idea of the amount of time you need to set aside each time you complete that task.
3. Use those time estimations to set your schedule. Allow a few minutes of extra time because LIFE HAPPENS.
Let’s be realistic with our schedules and be patient with ourselves. If you know you need ample time for a particular task, don’t wait until the last minute to try to get it done. Save yourself the hassle and stress!
