Habit One: Managing Your Priority Calendar

The calendar can be a dashboard for your life. Our studies show that you are 75% more likely to get something done if it’s on your calendar.

Blocking time on your calendar for your priorities sets you up to get the most important things done each week.

Building Your Habit

  1. Take time to reflect on your most important items, personally and professionally, and then time block those on your calendar. Such as focused work time, family time, exercise, lunch, email processing, strategic thinking time, etc.
  2. Color code your appointments by type, if you haven’t already done so, to get a quick view of how balanced your calendar is with your priorities. If you’re an Outlook for Windows users, our Setup Guide walks you through how to do that.
