Plan Your Day and Be Productive: Live Efficiently!

When is the last time you sat down and made a list of things to do for the day?  On the contrary have you ever sat down and taken the time to create a well devised plan of action?

I have commonly found that when I take the occasion to plan my day that things run rather smooth and I always have more than enough time.  However, on the other hand when I just decide to coast through without strategic direction I never have enough hours in the day.  Sound familiar?

Regardless of your schedule if you make the time to plan your day’s events you will live productively.  A common excuse to avoid planning is as simple as not having enough time.  And to that I say let’s get real.  

Think about all the things you make time for on a daily basis and why.  Typically it may be do to an obligation of some sort or perhaps because you derive sensory pleasure from those activities.  You see in order to be an effective planner you must have a cause of action.  Hence the question: Why should you plan? 

I don’t know your take but I will share mine with you.  For me, in order to get the job done I need to lay it out on the line, i.e. evaluate the situation and make realistic time to bring about the mission.  After all, if you can show strength and character in small tasks then you can grow to accomplish greatness.

When planning you must also make room for the unexpected.  Literally create time for permission of situations that may arise out of nowhere.  Taking these precautionary steps will help you to stay in control when life changes at the drop of a dime.  And believe me it will!  One thing I have concluded is that the only thing in this world that I am in control of is how I react to everything out of my control.

Taking the time to prepare for tomorrow will also give you peace of mind allowing you to sleep through the night with calmness and absolute ease.

P.S.  Work smart and play hard!
