Four Steps to Schedule Your Busy Life

Achieve Your Work Balance.

Achieve Your Work Balance.

“We all have different skill sets, interests, concentration cycles, and energy levels. The key is to find out how long it really takes YOU to do the things you need to do and move away from wishful thinking.” ― Julie Morgenstern

Take control of your schedule and your life with mind mapping. Achieving a balance with a hectic schedule means that you need to divide your work and leisure time into the right proportions.

Four Tools to Help Schedule Your Busy Schedule:

  • A time map. A time map is a schedule template that will help you achieve your ideal
    life balance. This proactive positive tool will help you with your daily, weekly, and
    monthly schedule for your social media networks blogs, marketing campaigns, and
    articles.
  • The iMindMap software is for all price levels and has multi-user licenses.
  • Use mind management techniques that uses a task management software.
  • Timesheet Template for Excel, OpenOffice, and Google Sheets.

Mind Mapping Your Schedule

The Daily To Do List

I know that everyone wishes that they had time to do everything on their to-do list.
You could daydream about having this capability if you watch the weekly show #Limitless
on the CBS TV channel. The character, Brian, takes a special pill so he can use the full extent of his brain’s capabilities.

An example of a time map is a kindergarten classroom model. Children have scheduled
activity zones that keeps all related tasks together.

Ideas on Setting up a Mind Map

  • Set up activity zones that corresponds to your life categories and that contains all the
    tasks on your to-do lists. Take control of your schedule and your life. Your mind map
    activities will support your life categories. Some examples of activity zones that
    could be set up are self, family, work, finances, education, leisure time, and community
    activities.
  • Setting up a time map is like a puzzle setting up activities to your satisfaction.
    After you set up your time map follow it for several weeks to see how it feels, then if
    needed you can make adjustments.

Julie Morgenstern, a Time Management Expert

From Julie’s book,“Time Management from the Inside Out,” she says that
“Identifying and creating spaces for general routines does two things:

(1) It allows you to see whether or not you’ve actually made sufficient time available for all categories.
(2) It allows you to see the cyclical nature of your time and realize that it’s much
less erratic than you might otherwise assume.

For those with more varied schedules, like teachers or consultants, it’s easy to design updated time maps as needed, says Julie Morgenstern. Also, during the work day, in the middle of a task, do not stop to answer your phone call or answer an email. Little interruptions like these takes us up to 20 minutes to regain the same level of concentration that we had for the previous
task.
