Time & Scheduling

There never seems to be enough time in a day, week or month. Find a schedule/system and use it, 43 Folders, Franklin Covey, or just a calendar. Get a program and start using it. Schedule your business, personal and free time. Put a value on your time for each activity, this does not have to be written, just noted. Allow some time in your schedule for flexibility. Share your calendar with your spouse/significant other, find out what is important to them, and plan appropriately.

Check your calendar when ever scheduling, especially if you have a shared calendar with your S.O. or even business partner. Remember to charge appropriately for rush jobs & for jobs that interrupt your free time. Remember to value your employee's time as well. A few hrs of time off during the week with out a hassle can go a long way, when you need a bit more time or an extra couple hours over a weekend.
