Why do I do this, thought?
Another great question!
I do this because it works for me. When I have a daily plan, I’m less anxious. You might think that creating a daily plan like this is an extension of anxiety, but that is only partly true.
Creating a daily plan like this allows me to move through my day with intention. I know where my time is going. I know what I need to do. It helps me stay on top of the important things.
One of the best mentors I’ve ever had told me,
“Don’t write a to-do list. Think of your exit list. Write down the things you absolutely have to do before you can exit the workday, before your day is done.”
It’s great advice.
A daily plan sets you up for success because it allows you to exit the stress of your tasks once they’re done. There’s a starting point, there’s a road map, and there’s a clear end time.
And the more you do this, the more you learn about how long it takes you to complete certain tasks.
Life is just one long information-gathering exercise, after all.
Create a plan, and you’ll collect that valuable information with intention.
You’ll know exactly where you’re heading–and how you’re going to get there.
