8 – Plan your day
Planning your day first thing in the morning can give you a better sense of direction and increase productivity.
I prefer to use an analog system called: pen and paper. Nothing fancy.
Start by doing a list of the things you have to do on that day.
Then mark the three most important tasks you really need to accomplish on that day.
Organize how you are going to do it (first this one, then the other, and so on).
By doing this you can come up with a reasonable plan for the day and the tasks ahead.
You can also jot down some short notes that will help you with task’s implementation (I said short notes).
And Write a Journal
Writing a journal can be a very effective way to recollect info that are important to you, key moments in your life, remember anniversaries, and even incorporate the planning of the day (the previous tip).
I found a simple, efficient, flexible and inexpensive way to write a journal, it is called the Bullet Journal. You can give a look by clicking the link and see if it suits you (by the way it is FREE). I have to say that I love this technique.
