Life Made Easier: Steve’s Expert Advice on Simplifying Everyday Tasks and Creating Routines

The Power of a Schedule: How to Stay Organized and Productive 

Many people find themselves scrambling to get things done, struggling to meet deadlines, and living in a constant state of overwhelm. No matter how many times they create to do lists and set goals, accomplishing everything seems to be impossible.  

While this is a pretty common occurrence, it doesn’t have to be. A truly effective way to boost your productivity and keep your life on track is to create and stick to a comprehensive schedule. It’s not enough to create lists and set goals if you aren’t carefully planning each step and adding them to your daily schedules. 

You can plan everything for days and months with a schedule. Your schedule allows you to utilize your time better and ensures that you’re getting things are done that are important to you. Most people wing it and go with the flow but having a plan will make the most of your time, just like a budget helps you make the most of your finances. It’s the secret highly productive people share. 

When planning your schedule, keep the following things in mind.  

Be Specific 

Creating a schedule may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Start by sitting down and brainstorming all the crucial tasks you need to accomplish in a given day, week, or month. Once you have a list, you can begin to plug those items into specific days and times. Be specific. The more detailed your schedule is, the easier it will be to follow. 

Schedule Everything 

You should schedule everything you want to do when you create your schedule. When you put everything, including your work, family, friends, self-care needs, and social life, into your schedule, you help yourself manage your time more effectively. This way, you can be sure to be available for the people and things that matter most to you. 

Be Realistic 

It’s also critical to be realistic when you create your schedule. If you try to pack too many things into one day, you’re likely to feel overwhelmed and get even less done than you normally would. Factor in extra time for traffic, take into consideration that there may be delays in other people doing their share of the work that may affect your work. Realize emergencies and sicknesses happen so you need to add a buffer in for them. And never forget to include some free time each day to relax and enjoy your life. 

Be Flexible  

An essential point to remember when creating a schedule is flexibility. The way life is, is that things happen. Things happen you didn’t plan for, and you’ll need to adjust your schedule accordingly. So don’t fear changes to your schedule when they are genuinely needed. But remember being flexible doesn’t mean you skip tasks you’ve labeled as urgent and necessary it only means you can move it around your calendar when needed and only when you need to. 

Set Boundaries 

A vital aspect of creating an effective schedule is to set boundaries for yourself. It would help if you imposed some limitations on how much time you can spend on each item in your schedule. Set boundaries with clients, friends, family, and others regarding your time. This is critical because it will allow you to balance your work and personal life properly. If you do not set these boundaries, it is amazingly easy to get wrapped up in one thing and neglect other areas of your life. 

Once you have a plan, give it your best effort to stick to it. Of course, there will always be some flexibility needed when life happens. But if you can stick to your schedule as much as possible, you’ll be surprised at how much more productive and organized you can be.

Feeling Stuck in Life? Practicing Ways to Get Going Again 

 There will come a time in life when you may feel that you are no longer living in the moment. You may look at things going on around you and feel hopeless and stuck, like you are on autopilot and things just happen to you, rather than you being the one in the driver’s seat any longer. Finding a way to get emotionally unstuck so you can enjoy life once again can be key o helping you get the most out of life.  

 While many things can cause you to get stuck in life, from a mental health condition to a big trauma that goes on in your life, there are also many steps you can take to help yourself get restarted. Some of the best tips include: 

 Become More Aware 

 One place you can start when you feel like you are stuck in with your awareness. Consider an examination of your unconscious to see what is going on. You may find that there are cognitive distortions or defense mechanisms that are in place that make it hard to be aware of your surroundings. Even your default patterns in relationships could be to blame. Depending on the situation, you may be able to handle this on your own or may need to call in a professional.  

 Take on Responsibility.  

 According to, many people find it easier to blame someone else, rather than take responsibility for their actions. You may not want to admit when you have done something wrong, but it can be freeing. Stop for a moment and take an honest inventory of how well you are behaving and what things you may have done wrong. Practice forgiveness, for others and yourself as well.  

 Detach from Unrealistic Expectations 

 We often find that we have unrealistic expectations in life. Whether you are a perfectionist or not, there are times when your expectations of a person or a situation are not realistic and it can lead to a lot of disappointment. You need to start looking at the situation and deciding if your expectations make sense for it or not, tapering back a bit if you end up adding too much that makes it impossible.  

 Choose Self-Love 

 It is hard to get going again and enjoy the life you have if you can’t take the time to practice some self-love. The first step to doing this is to make that inner critic go away. When all you hear in your mind are all the ways that you are imperfect and not as good as others, you can feel down and depressed, unmotivated to get much done. Start by showing yourself some compassion and see what a difference it makes.  

 Ask for Support 

 Sometimes,  you need to bring in some support to give you the help you desire. You are a strong and powerful individual, but you can’t do everything on your own. Bring in some support to see how they can help raise you and make you feel better. This support can come from friends and family members, but be open to seeking up from a professional, such as a therapist, who can assist you in looking deep down and working through some of your other issues too.  

 While it may be normal to get stuck in life sometimes and feel like you are on autopilot all the time, that doesn’t mean you need to stay in that situation forever. Learning how to enjoy life and jump right back in is one of the best ways for you to get going again.
