Fix the schedule you want

Fix the schedule you want

Brilliant article by Cal Newport on time management. He argues that we should fix the schedule we want and then work towards it, instead of trying to make our current schedule work.
Cal Newport  writes an amazing blog called Study Hacks, exploring ways to increase focus, time management and productivity.

“You could fill any arbitrary number of hours with what feels to be productive work. Between e-mail, and crucial web surfing, and to-do lists that, in the age of David Allen, grow to lengths that rival the bible, there is always something you could be doing. At some point, however, you have to put a stake in the ground and say: I know I have a never-ending stream of work, but this is when I’m going to face itIf you don’t, you’ll let this work push you around like a bully. It will force you into tiring, inefficient schedules, and you’ll end up more stressed and no more accomplished.

Fix the schedule you want. Then make everything else fit around your needs. Be flexible. Be efficient. If you can’t make it fit: change your work. But in the end, don’t compromise”

This is my goal for the week to create my ideal schedule & work towards it. Check out the blog post here..
