February 2021 Calendar: -When it comes to productivity, the first rule is: Have rules. If you want to live without rules, go ahead. But life is not Fight Club. February 2021 Calendar and day to day planners actually help us to solve problems and get the most out of life. Josh Weltman, an advertising creative director for 25+ years, and the co-producer of Mad Men put it well in his book Seducing Strangers: “Solving a problem requires a weird combination of freedom and constraint. Whenever I hear “Just have fun with it” or “Think outside the box,” I know from experience that things are about to turn into a colossal waste of time.” Good news: You make up the rules. For example, one of my personal rules is this: Never complain. Another one is: Read and exercise every day. And: Close the day every evening by setting your next day’s priorities. When you combine all your productivity rules, you have a system. Voila! And a system changes everything. Truly on my system to work smarter, better, happier, and effectively. It took me years to figure out that a system is a good thing, and a few more years to create one, but it was worth it. Because now, I get to be a productive person. Not bad for an unproductive person, huh?
February 2021 Calendar
After a busy day, it’s quite challenging to wind down and get ready for a good night’s sleep. Too often I find myself working until late. And sometimes I might find myself reading or watching a TV show. And when you’re ready to go to sleep, you can’t. Your mind is buzzing with thoughts you don’t want at that time of day. It’s no secret that a lot of people have difficulties with sleeping. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 45% of Americans say that poor or insufficient sleep affected their daily activities at least once in the past seven days. Why’s the evening so important? Well, you might have a perfect morning ritual, a fully planned February 2021 Calendar, and the intention to crush your day, but if you lack the energy, you’re not doing anything productive.
During the past six months, I’ve experimented a lot with evening and morning rituals. What I’ve found is that a morning ritual is easy to implement in your life. But they’re also easy to quit. When we wake up tired, we often fall back on our, not helpful, habits. End result? You lose, and life wins. You end up not focused, our of control, agitated, and just not happy overall. That’s why I’ve created a February 2021 Calendar that helps me to get ready for some well-deserved rest. We all know it: Get 7-9 hours of sleep. But too often life gets in the way, and we don’t follow common sense. But with the following evening ritual, I’ve found a good way to bring more consistency in my evenings, and therefore, my life. From minute 0 to minute 10: Close The Day Every evening I take 10 minutes to journal about my day. In a few sentences, I write about what I’ve accomplished, what I’ve learned, and anything that’s worth remembering. That simple exercise helps me to: Remember what I did (sounds stupid, but we forget most things we do).
Review my progress and see whether I’m doing all the things that I should be doing (like reading, working out, spending time with my family, writing, talking to people I work with). I’ve learned this exercise from Jim Rohn. He says: “At the end of each day, you should play back the tapes of your performance. The results should either applaud you or prod you.” It’s simple: Close the day before you start a new day. Also, close every week before you start a new week.
