Chapter 9. Daily plan > Tasks not to schedule

Tasks not to schedule

Scheduling effectively includes knowing what to schedule and what not to schedule. Nothing wastes your time more quickly than spending time on tasks that are unimportant or could be delegated to someone else. Be careful not to schedule the following items:

  • Tasks you can delegate. Don’t schedule time for tasks that you can delegate. As you evaluate your daily plan, determine which tasks to give to someone else. Delegating tasks can free up hours of your time, allowing you more time to complete the tasks you must do for yourself.

  • Tasks done to please others. Eliminate all tasks from your daily plan that you have been doing only to please others. If you are working on tasks simply because you fear the condemnation of others or want others to be indebted to you, you are wasting your time.

  • Thoughtless or inappropriate requests for your time. Don’t waste time on unreasonable and thoughtless requests. Kindly explain to the person requesting your time that you don’t have time to spare and continue to work on the tasks you planned for that day.
