I love to plan. Looking ahead brings me a measure of peace. While I never know for sure what will happen, being aware of my upcoming schedule helps me prioritize. I write down everything I want or need to do and block off the time to do it.
Reaching a goal typically requires that we alter the way we use our time. Time is hard to come by, so it helps if we can block it out in advance. Rarely does extra “white space” pop up, and when it does, we are unlikely to use it for something requiring exertion or effort. To move forward, we need to assign specific tasks to specific days.
Whether you are starting today or have been working toward your resolution for a couple of weeks, be intentional about your future agenda. Record what you will do each day, making the tasks small enough that you will actually do them. One bite a day and you will eventually eat the apple.
