If you’re anything like me, you plan and structure your days. You know how much time you’ll be spending on each task and on each project. You start your planning the day before, and you get up early in the morning to continue your planning.
Decide how much time you’re going to use before you start working.
Time is my most valuable asset. That’s why I first decide how much time to spend on each activity, and then track the time using Timely.
I first decide how much time I’ll be using on each task I’ve added to Todoist (sometimes it can be a combination of tasks). It can be work or personal, like:
– Reading 60 minutes
– Walking 45 minutes
– Writing 60 minutes
I don’t use a calendar to track when to do it. I want my time to be flexible. This means that, right now, I am not using the pomodoro technique.
I just decide how much time I’ll be spending on each task for a single day, and I work in small batches. Sometimes, if I have decided to write for 60 minutes, I can write for 10 minutes, and do it 6 times during the day. On a different day, I can write for thirty minutes two times during the day. It all depends on what feels right.
