Set the table:

In Calendars and Contacts 101 we talked about having a calendar, setting it up, keeping it basic with just a work and personal one. Now some fine tuning in part because our lives have changed a bit. 

 

Segment 1: Scheduling

  • Our lives have shifted to more open scheduling. For instance, we set more of our own time when working from home. 

  • Set the structure and allow for flexibility - Freedom within the framework  

    • Scheduling large blocks of time, 3 or more hours, tend to see the task expand or not get done.

    • Tight blocks of time, 30 minutes are less, feel inflexible, in part because it is easy to “fail” at them and get discouraged. 

    • Example of Thursday podcast and music days

  • Use occasional calendar blocks to defend times for aspirational items

 

Segment 2: Maintenance, sharing, and notifications

  • Use it every day. 

  • Clean up errors when you find them. Repeats, addresses, etc. 

  • Use shared calendars.

  • Clean up notifications, especially on shared calendars. 

 

 

Closing thoughts:

Adapt to your own needs after a while. For instance, I use reminders for phone call returns or spur of the moment errands or appointments.
