Don’t settle for a workday in which only an hour or two is in your control. Fight for every last minute. Even if you don’t always win, you’ll end up better off.
Tips & Tricks:
Reject the premise that your day must unfold reactively. Be proactive with your time. But how?
- Use zero-based time management to account for each minute (yes, minute!) of your day.
- Add buffers to your schedule to allow for unexpected events.
- Change your calendar if necessary as you go along.
Another perspective to zero-based time management: master the Rule of 168.
