I was on the phone with a client this morning when he said, ”I don’t know why I have such a hard time planning my day-to-day stuff? I just want my day to be easier!”
I get it. Everybody does. And to make that happen, you need a mindset shift.
First to consider is that non-stop and continuous planning of every task every day is exhausting. It only adds another level of stress to your day.
Instead, planning should be done occasionally with a broader focus on short, medium, and long-term. The goal is NOT to spend your life planning. It is creating containers where you plan to do your work or play.
Once you have your containers, you load them with goals and tasks and get them done. When things require adjustments, make another plan.
Make your plan and work your plan. Don’t keep change things. That’s how you get what you want.
