We all have a hard time with planning sometimes, so it helps to keep a similar checklist in mind. Dumb Little Man (a blog giving tips on life) gives us this wonderful list on the theme, with an easy list of do's and dont's:
- Do identify specific triggers because it's what the brain understands and it leads to action.
- Do have flexibility – it lets you execute your plans even when "life happens."
- Don’t plan uncontrollable activities
- Don’t mentally cycle through ideas and fail to write them down.
- Don’t let perfectionism delay important tasks
So, plan like this:
- Focus on things you can control
- Write ideas down to get them out of your head
- Shun perfectionism in favor of doing-somethingism.
Add your plans to the dedicated Weekdone form section, keep them in an open browser tab during your week and tick off things you did.
