Do you have more than one calendar? Keeping personal appointments on one calendar and business appointments on another. Or maybe you use a paper calendar at home and carry an electronic calendar with you during the day. Please, please, please don’t do this – This is a recipe for disaster.
Schedule family activities, business appointments, sporting events, vacations, and personal projects into ONE SINGLE planner. Get a planner that includes weekends and evenings. Use your planner everyday, often, very often. Refer to it first thing in the morning, so you can plan your day. Write everything down. The more you use your calendar, the better you will be able to manage your time.
