5 Reasons Why Planning Your Day Will Help You Succeed!
Would you trust an architect to build your dream home without a blueprint?
Would you let your doctor perform surgery without consulting the nurses or hospital staff about what he or she is about to do?
Would you trust your boyfriend or husband to navigate you in a foreign country with no map or attempt to use Google Maps? (Sorry boys had to chuck this one in as click-bait!)
Seriously there are some things in life where a plan can make the difference between success and failure and somethings are better left in the hands of destiny, like falling in love (ohhhhh).
So here are my five reasons why planning your day can help your succeed.
1. Relieves Stress
Whenever I feel like my day is starting to get the better of me, I retreat to planning to ensure those worries don't turn into major stress moments!
Simply writing down a list of things that you need to do can turn chaos that is swirling in your mind into a bit of order, therefore reducing the build up of stress.
2. Creates good structure to attack the day
When you set out what you would like to achieve that day, whether it be getting washing done, housework or closing that big deal at work it helps create structure in your day.
This structure is what can turn a ordinary day into a day of achieving.
3. Helps create focus
Planning your day ahead not only signals the intent of success through achievement, BUT helps create focus.
When a plan has focus it tends to have a much better chance of turning into an achievable goal.
4. Makes you more agile
When you plan your day, you not only set a structure and intent, but create the ability to be agile. Since you know what you need to do that day, it gives you a sense of order or hierarchy.
So when something unexpected pops up you know exactly what you can move or change to cater for that unplanned event and re-shuffle your day.
5. It creates accountability!
We all have those days where we don't want to do anything but sleep or lounge around.
But when you set the expectation to plan ahead you not only set out a schedule BUT you also start the process of becoming accountable for those plans, especially when you couple it with a purpose.
So there you have it, five reasons why planning your day can make you successful.
