Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to manage almost all your tasks from your calendar?
If you are someone who has hundreds of non-trivial tasks listed at any time, or less than nine total hours of “free” time per week… you have come to the right place.
And no, you aren’t crazy. (Although people who advise you to “just simply reduce your tasks” may think you are!)
It’s just that the conventional interpretation of your peculiar challenge oversimplifies the problem. It’s time for a more nuanced approach.
We are here to help. Join our community of like-minded people who have imagined a different way to use our schedules. Perhaps you can see the possibility of deeper peace of mind by from using your calendar for more tasks, not less. And from taking control of all your commitments, not just some subset. Even if they number in the hundreds. Or more.
I’m Francis Wade and for over two decades I have been studying task management in all its forms. I’m not alone (or the first) to imagine the possibility of scheduling everything. Like lots of other super-busy people, I have struggled to make this practice part of my daily life.
Like most people here, I began by failing miserably. To my surprise, “Total Task Scheduling” was much harder than it seemed. So, I gave up after my first attempt, even though my intuition screamed: “There must be a way!”
But I was fortunate. Even though I had already surrendered, I met others who found ways to make it work. This encouraged me to keep trying to find a way to meet my individual needs. Now, about 15 years since learning I wasn’t crazy, I have made these techniques a regular practice. They have become a cornerstone of my books , research and the lessons I teach here at ScheduleU – The very first “School for Scheduling Everything.”
If you also hate it when just a single task drops through the cracks or your calendar gets overwhelmed to the point where it becomes a burden, here’s some assistance.
Sign up for our complimentary 12 lesson program: A Course in Scheduling.
But only join in if you are an ambitious, high-achiever who keeps saying “Yes, I Can” to your aspirations. The average person doesn’t understand you: after all, as you reach for greater accomplishments, you must add more tasks.
Therefore, each new “Yes” puts a bit more strain on your current workflow. It eats away at your free time, and pushes your current combination of habits, practices, apps, and devices to the limit.
Like others here at ScheduleU, you make errors as you push the envelope of your task management capacity. Also, that new project, or marathon, or new language, or trip to the place on your bucket list just has to wait. Your current setup strains to keep pace with your ambitions.
So if you are looking for fresh ways to be more effective, join me in A Course in Scheduling. It’s the first training to explain the apps embedded with the Narrow Artifical Intelligence you need to be an effective Total Task Scheduler. (We coined the phrase “auto-scheduler” to describe these new applications.)
Most people who arrive here are using manual methods, looking for better options. They are trying to schedule everything (or almost everything), and can’t afford to get stuck in stale methods. They require a new, custom approach to their task management.
If that resonates with you, jump into my free, 12-day training: A Course in Scheduling. Find out for yourself what it takes to become an effective Total Task Scheduler using either enhanced manual methods or a new auto-scheduler.
