I am productive because I commit to planning.
“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
There are times when my workload seems overwhelming, but I avoid letting it get the better of me. My tasks are accomplished with ease when I stick to the allotted time for working on them.
Working on multiple projects simultaneously is exciting. I like having the variety, so I schedule the tasks in an interesting way to keep my days lively.
Allotting set timeslots is an efficient way to ensure I stay on top of my responsibilities.
When I focus on achieving goals and keeping my clients happy, it is easy to commit to a schedule. I feel accomplished when I meet my deadlines and achieve targets.
Having a day filled with achievements makes it easy to look forward to the next day with excitement. I avoid falling behind by setting realistic goals for myself each day.
Although I enjoy working, going without leisure breaks leads to disinterest in the assigned projects. I avoid burnout and stress by committing to my personal life with as much passion that I give to my work life.
I make time for my family and friends. I include this time in my planner just as I do my work commitments. Balancing work with my personal life is important for my peace of mind.
Today, what I am able to produce is a result of my commitment to a predefined schedule. I spend the time today planning for tomorrow, so I am able to feel successful and satisfied at the end of the day.
