Schedule your life

12 Jan

Mark Frauenfelder at BoingBoing blogs about Cal Newport’s time management rules:

“To-do lists are evil. Schedule everything.
Assume you’re going home at 5:30, then plan your day backwards.
Make a plan for the entire week.
Do very few things, but be awesome at them.
Do less shallow work — focus on the deep stuff.”

I am intrigued by this and will read Newport’s book. This reminds me a lot of  Catherine Hooper’s talk on using Google Calendar to prioritize her goals. Hooper’s video had a big effect on me and I now set aside time every week to organize my calendar. Perhaps I need to take it up to a new level.
