A example of a time management technique you may want to use.

How do you know "what is the next right thing for you to do?"

So I created a little chart for myself that I put on top margin of my on-line notebook that serves as my personal journal.

The process goes as follows...

  • First Check In with yourself and handle any of these concerns.
  • Then accept Input.
  • Then Orient yourself.
  • Then Remind yourself of your plan of attack.

After that I spend time to Reflect.

And I put a line for my Values as footnote to myself.

An an example my chart looks as follows and you can customize your own to be useful and meaningful for yourself.
