S1 E7: Microhabits: Plan the Day

Season #1

Three Hard Things


Peace in Planning

  • Try planning the night before
  • Write it down
  • Journaling & list making
  • Complete tasks with intention

Twenty-Four Hours

  • Prioritize 
  • Pick 3
  • Let everything else “filter in”

The Walnuts & Rice

It’s a common example, but important to remember. Grab a pint jar, three walnuts in their shell and a cup of rice. If you try to put the rice in first, the walnuts do not fit in the jar. However, if you put the walnuts in first, the rice will in – around the empty spaces. What is this allegory for us?

As hard as it seems, we have to prioritize those hard tasks – and only focus on 3 of them, sometimes only 1. If we get just 1 to 3 hard things done each day, the rest of the day’s work gets done. Give it a try. Drop me a note and let me know how it works for you.

To-Do Lists

  • Seldom fun
  • Make them fun
  • Bullet Journal
  • Sketchnotes

Even for the best of us, list all the things we *don’t* want to do


  • Hold us accountable
  • Help us remember
  • Help us prioritize

Adjust & Adapt

You’ve heard me say it before and I will always reiterate. Set a goal, make a plan, and be willing to adjust. We cannot control what happens in our lives. We can control how we react. 

But at least I have a plan to adjust, which is much better than shooting from the hip wondering what I'm going to forget next. This is what works for me. I would love to hear from you. Please share with me what works for you. What do you do to make sure that you get the things done during the week without becoming overwhelmed?
