The day can?t be over already! I still have to?
Do you ever have one of those days (weeks/ months) where you have way to much to get accomplished and not enough time to get it all done. You sit down and just start plowing through each day, but before you know it ?the day is over!? The problem is you still haven?t done everything on your list. Sometimes, we even find that our list was barely touched. What did you do all day? You know you worked. So what did you do?
Today, I found myself in this very situation! The worse part is that it felt familiar like every day for the past few weeks I?ve been having this puzzled feeling. I know I?ve been very productive over the past few weeks. I know I?ve gotten work done. I?m just wondering what that work was because my TO DO list just isn?t getting smaller.
One thing I really needed was to start using the weekly planner that Santa brought me. I commenced using this late December. I thought now I?m going be on track. Well, one week of January is gone and I?m still feeling like I should have been more productive over the past week. So today I?m going back to the basics. I?m printing out my daily log sheet so I can promptly start using it. I talk about the daily log sheet in my book, ?Organizing For The Business Professional.? A quick understanding of the daily log sheet is that it allows the user, in this case me to track each thing done throughout each day. This way at the end of each day I can determine if I truly used my time during the day wisely. While I haven?t started using the form as of writing this article, I know that when I?m done it will be the first entry on the daily log form for today.
By the end of today, I will know how I spent my time today. By the end of the week, I?ll know what time of day is the most productive, and what time of day lacks in performance. Specifically, I?ll be able to break down strong and weak areas of my time management. I have found while it?s a very basic procedure it is the most effective way to get back on track. I believe after one week of utilizing this form I?ll start feeling more confident in my schedule, after one month of implementation I?ll have myself completely on track without question about where my time is going!
