Importance of Planning
I have just returned from my 6.00 a.m. gym session. Maintaining health is important for anyone in an occupation that sees them on their butt for many hours of the day.
On driving home I quizzed myself about the forthcoming days work. I have so many pending commitments, yet I have no defined plan of attack. I tend to flutter about like a butterfly not knowing upon which flower to settle. Of course I acknowledge that planning is an essential element of efficiency, but plans often succumb to stresses of huge burdens. I think it’s important to share my future plan in that I intend to structure my working day (and working week) into specific two-hour blocks, i.e. writing; correspondence; bookkeeping; social media, etc.
My hope is that my day will flow smoothly without the need to borrow time from one task and apportion it to another. Sounds very basic. It is. But do we practice it?
