Check-in with your calendar
When you have a quiet moment, take a seat, make yourself comfortable and make sure you’re going to be undisturbed. Then open your calendar for next week. Starting with Monday, slowly read through each day, appointment by appointment, noticing how each one makes you feel.
What are you looking forward to? What fills you with dread? Are you ever double or triple-booked? Have you allowed time for lunch? Are there days that feel about right?
Our calendars reflect how we choose to spend our days. Do you feel in control of yours or as though its scheduling is down to others? What would it take for your calendar to be an ally not an obstacle to getting your work done?
