How Fellow Millennial Bloggers Schedule Their Time

This morning I shared 5 Tips For Creating A Work Schedule. I asked some fellow bloggers how they schedule their work on twitter. Here’s a quick re-cap of the conversation.

1. A Calendar Cannot Be Overrated

Lindsay Shoemake from That Working Girl and Michelle Adams both share a common love for utilizing a calendar. Having a calendar on your phone, computer or going old school like Rebecca Fraser-Thill from Working Self with a paper planner can help keep track of important dates and split up your hours.

2. Using Lists and Emails

Erin Lowry from Broke Millennial comments on how she uses lists on post-it notes and marking unread emails as a way to stay organized. Lists can help you keep of tasks so nothing gets lost in the hustle and bustle of work. Marking emails as unread, or important for Gmail users, or flagging them for Microsoft Outlook users, can allow you to come back to emails when it is more convenient.

3. Combining Methods

Emmie Scott from World By Storm talks about using a combination of techniques. She too uses the calendar technique. For her lists and notes she uses Evernote to seamlessly keep track of notes, lists, brainstorms, etc. across all platforms wherever she is. She has synced Evernote on her computer, phone and kindle! It’s a great tool for organization, scheduling and prioritizing.

  1. I might add that my paper planner strategy breaks down at precisely this time of year because I use an academic planner (since I’m a teacher and “think” on an academic calendar!). Until I get things transferred to the new planner, there is always a two week period when I have no idea what’s coming beyond the end of August. It’s a bit thrilling, if I’m honest. 🙂

    • Thanks for adding on to your paper planner scheduling technique.

      As much as I think scheduling is important I think it’s also important to be able to live and relax off schedule. I guess that two week period does that automatically for you!
