Effective Planning

Hey lovely, hope you’re well and having a great week. It’s great to have you stop by on this beautiful day.

As mentioned on my last post, today we’ll be looking at a few tips in the hopes of aiding effective schedule planning.  These quick tips have been very much helpful over the past few weeks; I couldn’t bear to keep them to myself.

Diving straight in;

  • Identify your goals: In identifying your goals, don’t just acknowledge it, WRITE it down – be specific too. You are more likely to remain committed to a task when it is visibly noted, as there is a sense of obligation and responsibility that is automatically embedded on one. Noting task also enables you remain focused, and encourages the desire to perform.
  • Set minor landmarks: Set mini targets, whether daily or hourly, which contributes to the achievement of the task at hand. Reviewing such tasks helps to keep track of your progress and the effectiveness of working strategies.
  • Remain in sync with your priorities: Using the end result as motivations, avoid distractions at all cost. Put in place literal strategies to prevent distractions from sipping in. I.e. switch off your phone or restricting yourself to a working environment.


You probably are now wondering, “Is that really it?” Yes, it sure is. All our goals and aspiration require of us is that we remain committed to the process of achieving. Doing so, success is inevitable.

I hope these tips are helpful! For more insight on productivity, be sure to check out my previous posts on the subject here, here and here.


Be Right Back,

  8. These tips are so great. Got to remember to set mini goals until I get to the big goal, which is a lot less intimidating.
