Growing up, no one taught me how to get things done.
From experts, I learned that’s it’s a skill like learning to read and write. And it’s a life skill that’s invaluable to get things done today and in the future.
Successful people who have achieved what they wanted in life do these 2 things:
I resisted the first.
I didn’t want to hear it.
And while I thought I didn’t need nor want to plan I was still not getting the things done (hustling at the last minute), feeling terrible and feeling behind.
I had good reasons – the nature of my job, my family. There was no way planning would work.
I was told “when you’re ready, you’ll see it”. And then I saw it – going about life the same way, expecting something to change. It didn’t.
And then I decided to pay closer attention and try it.
I learned I can plan and when the unexpected happens I can adjust the plan in record time, actually saving me time.
The record time I calculated in one week is
1 hour of planning = 2 days gained
That’s a weekend!
Here’s the planning that worked for me.
