Schedule Time for Tasks and Projects

Completion requirements

How to schedule time to spend on each task:

  • Estimate the time it takes to complete the task and compare it to actual time available.
  • Set a more specific deadline e.g. before 10:00 tomorrow.
  • Determine the best time of the day to do creative work or work that requires concentration.
  • Schedule blocks of time for completing similar tasks.
  • Play games with unpleasant or routine tasks.
  • Place your work with the highest priority in a brightly coloured folder in the centre of your desk before you leave the office.
  • Schedule time for self-improvement.
  • Concentrate on one task at a time.
  • Finish a task rather than place it aside.
  • Unfinished tasks can create chaos on days that suddenly become filled with crises.
  • There is no one right time to get started. It is just important to get started.
