Digital Calendars are way more powerful than the paper calendars we humans used for hundreds of years. The problem is, that most of us are still using them as if they are just paper calendars … and they are so much more than that.
Not only can our calendars now give us things like alarms and repeating events automatically (that’s the easy stuff). With a little out-of-the-box thinking, you can get a lot more from your Calendar. You can now easily schedule blocks of time to get the work most important to you into your schedule and make sure all the little stuff doesn’t get in the way of the big stuff. I call it hyper-scheduling.
You can also use calendar blocks to limit your time on things that are usual time-sucks. For instance, I have a one-hour block of time to process email and comms. That’s there so I only spend an hour (not three!) dealing with email.
And don’t forget digital calendars are free. You can make as many as you want. This lets you transform your digital calendar into a planning calendar.
I’ve got a lot of ideas on way to use digital calendars to your advantage. I shared them in a recent webinar and now you can watch it. Enjoy!
