Each morning when I arrive into work I spend five minutes doing diary management. I number each to do for the day in order of priority and scheduling in the time I will tackle it and how long it will take. Then at night I do the same, this time ensuring that all my to do’s for the week ahead are realistic and achievable.

 

I find setting out my intentions for the day and week ahead makes me clearer on my daily goals and focuses my mind firmly on work. It also makes me much more productive as it means I spend my time at work strategically on what matters most.
