This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
Do you have any guidelines, or have you seen anything pattern-wise with people in terms of how they set up their calendar for success?
I love this question! Thanks!
Most of the successful people that I know, including myself, use the calendar for everything.
It's not for time management.
It's for activity management.
There's a big difference. You can't really manage time, but you can manage activities.
You can manage them based on what’s important in your life.
So, the calendar is the roadmap to the quality of your life, really.
First my team and I sit down and put in the time we want off.
Then we add in our events and launches (in person and online)… sometimes a year or two in advance.
Then we reverse engineer the activities that are required to do all of those things and add those tasks into the calendar.
The best thing that you can do is schedule your entire day from the time you get up until the time you go to bed, including your free time.
You may not know what you're going to do with the block of free time, but it's on the calendar.
The delineation in your mind is that when you go from one thing to the next, you leave the one thing that you just did and you don't carry it over.
You don't carry over the marketing meeting into the sales meeting or the sales meeting into a coaching call.
Then when you're not working and you're in your free time or with your family, you're not working, and you're in your free time with your family.
You're 100% focused and present.
Your calendar should be designed based on the goal and the vision that you create for yourself so that you can systematically work toward it and manifest it in your life.
