I love hearing from readers about how they’re learning to overcome their time investment challenges…
With her permission, I’m sharing Gaia’s insight about the process she uses to have realistic expectations of how many activities can actually fit in a day. You may or may not decide to take such a detailed approach. But I thought this insight into her thought process and methods could benefit you so without further ado, here’s her e-mail:
Thank you Gaia for your insight! I hope it’s helpful to others. As a time coach, I would give readers who try this method one caveat: If you have activities that are not date-specific, you will probably still need to have a running to-do list of activities/projects and another list of ideas that you may or may not attend to in the future. These are the things you can’t put on your calendar on a specific date but you don’t want to forget.
