Build Your Schedule

Weekly schedule showing prioritization of important, high-impact tasks


You've set some goals, identified tasks, and thought about how urgency and importance factor into a schedule. Use this to build a weekly schedule for yourself.

No matter how you build your schedule, be:

  • realistic - everyone needs some down time
  • flexible - sometimes things happen beyond your control 
  • human - include time for errands and other personal things
  • clear - set clear start and stop times

Schedule in order of big > medium > small

When you build your schedule it's a mistake to write in all of your small tasks first. Typically this doesn't allow for enough time to get the big, really important tasks onto your schedule.

Instead, schedule time-sensitive and important tasks first, medium-importance tasks second, and, finally, the small stuff can fit around everything else.
