I’m not much of a planner, well except when planning a vacation with my boys but otherwise I’m not much of a personal daily activity planner. I just go by as the day approaches.
I know this sounds disturbing for a blogger, but this explains my lack of consistency and content. I am more of a spontenous person, i think and write immediately. However, if I am being honest, this kind of lifestyle has not given me much peace with what I hope to achieve blogging. And not only blogging, but in life.
Planning for the day ahead is important, it limits chaos, it prevents being too busy occupied yet not productive (that’s most definitely me), it allows one to prioritise and manage time effectively. Daily planning helps one develop consistency and is a performance evaluator. It gives purpose to the day ahead and focus to an individual.
Like I said, I am not a daily planner or organiser nor do I own a diary or day planner file but…. with the results of my poor time management skills and unproductive chaos in my life, I am desperately seeking to get myself into organising what i wish to do and not just think it and then brush it off when something else comes up. I NEED THIS CHANGE!
But where do I begin?
I’d like to know how you diarize your day or plan your day. What is in your daily planner?
What guidelines can I can follow to get started?
Do I really need to get a diary or daily planner file?
