According to a Timeview survey, 88 percent of people don’t use a dedicated time management system at work but “make do with a calendar, their email inbox, a to-do list or work it out as they go along.” The same survey found that over 90 percent thought better time management would reduce their workplace stress.
This post will explore productivity calendars and their benefits. We also have some tips for setting up your own productivity calendar, including how coAmplifi can help.
Benefits of using a productivity calendar
These are some ways a productivity calendar can help you accomplish your goals:
A productivity calendar helps you stay focused on your goals by supplying a clear roadmap of what you need to do each day. When you have a plan for the day, it’s easier to stay on track and focused. A calendar serves as a visual reminder of your goals and keeps you accountable. This increased focus helps you stay organized and reduces mental clutter, allowing you to work more efficiently and achieve your goals faster.
Better time management
A productivity calendar contributes to effective time management by forcing you to prioritize tasks and schedule a time to complete them. By realistically estimating the time needed to complete tasks, you can avoid overloading your schedule and prevent burnout. Your calendar can also point out time-wasting activities, helping you optimize your schedule and make the most of your day.
Greater sense of accomplishment
With a productivity calendar, you can track your progress over time in meeting your goals. As you complete tasks and check them off, you experience a sense of progress and achievement that can increase your motivation.
According to Allison C. Johs, writing for the American Bar Association, “Your calendar is one of the least expensive and most effective productivity tools you have in your arsenal. And in this day and age, it’s more important than ever to use a digital calendar that synchronizes with all your devices and that you can view, edit and update from anywhere, at any time.”
Tips for setting up a productivity calendar
Choose the right tool. There are a variety of tools you can use to create a productivity calendar, including apps, software, and pen and paper.
Choose the tool that works best for you and that you’re most comfortable using.
Set clear goals. It’s important to understand what you want to accomplish before using a productivity calendar. Having clear goals will help you prioritize tasks and ensure you’re working towards your most important objectives.
Break down your to-do list. Large projects can be overwhelming. To feel you’re making progress, it helps to break large tasks into smaller subtasks that are easier to tackle.
Use time-blocking. This technique requires you to assign specific blocks of time for different tasks. This can help you stay focused and avoid distractions, as well as ensure that you’re focusing on your most important tasks.
