Do it or schedule it

This is a productivity tip.

When you want to get something done (even if you don’t actually want to do whatever it is), either do it or schedule a time to do it.

If what you want to get done comes to mind, nail it on the spot.

If you can’t do it then or think another time really would be better, schedule it. I recommend setting a reminder with Google Calendar or some other such reminder mechanism. When it’s time to do it, do it. If something else came up or partway through you find you don’t have enough time to finish, set another time. Stay on it. Don’t let the reminder sit. Do it or trash the reminder. Ignored reminders are useless.

Hope you liked it. If so, maybe share it, comment, or link. Many thanks.
