Simple Clarity – Schedule your day to maximize your energy

The simplest and most effective way to regain control of your life and maximize your daily energy is to spend 15 minutes each evening or morning scheduling the upcoming day. Not just a to do list. But actually setting aside time blocks for specific things on your to do list. It’s important to include everything from eating, to personal time, to reading time, to email / communication time.

This puts your life on your schedule and allows you to thoughtfully work through things instead of just reacting to things all day. It also gives you scheduled time to rest and recharge your brain between periods of focused work. This alone will dramatically increase the amount of energy you have to actually engage in everything you do.  Here’s an example of the schedule I put together last night for today:

Yes, I eat a lot 🙂

  1. I eat so often that if I don't schedule it, it creates bottle necks in my day. The awesome thing about scheduling downtime in your day is that you never feel guilty for taking a break. It's part of your day and part of being productive.

  2. Didn't mean it in a negative way. Just thought it was nuts cause we all have to eat. Whatever works. 😉

  3. Hey Lorenz,

    Really like your day planner, looking for something similar myself. Did you make it yourself, if so which tools did you use? If not where can I find one? 🙂
