Don’t put Tasks in your Calendar

Don’t put Tasks in your Calendar

If you're looking to optimize your productivity and make the most of your calendar, it's important to avoid the habit of placing tasks directly onto your schedule. While it may seem like a simple solution to keeping on top of your daily tasks, this approach can actually be counterproductive in the long run.

The author of this article recounts a personal experience with scheduling every aspect of their life, only to find themselves constantly rescheduling tasks from previous days. This led to unnecessary stress and a feeling of being overwhelmed with their to-do list.

To counteract this, the article recommends using a separate task management system, such as a to-do list app, to keep track of your tasks. By keeping these separate from your calendar, you'll have a clearer overview of your daily activities, and reduce the risk of overloading your schedule with too many tasks.

Ultimately, the goal is to make the most of your calendar by using it to schedule specific events and appointments, and leaving the task of managing your daily tasks to a separate system designed specifically for that purpose.
