How to Get the Most from Your Weekly Calendar Template

  1. Don’t cram too much into any one day. Be realistic about how much you can accomplish, and try to limit your calendar to 3 tasks per column.
  2. If you’re having trouble trimming your to-do lists, take this David Allen mnemonic to heart, and sort your tasks into four categories: Do it, Delegate it, Defer it, Drop it. Make sure that all the items on your weekly calendar belong in the “Do it” category.
  3. Write in pencil so you can easily make changes. Days that go exactly as planned are rare.

The Organized Mind by Daniel Levitin

If you are interested in learning about the inner workings of the brain in relation to organization, time management, and modern technology, I highly recommend reading The Organized Mind by neuroscientist Daniel Levitin. The book explains what physically happens in the human brain when we plan, daydream, make decisions, focus, and get distracted. Furthermore, the work is filled with a bunch of practical tips to help you maintain laser-like focus, despite the bombardment of distractions inherent within the digital age.
