Have you ever wondered if it’s actually possible to put almost all your tasks on a calendar so you can manage all the demands on your time and expand your peace of mind?
Welcome to Schedule U. We are here to help. Join our community of people who, like you, have imagined a new level of control and clarity from making better use of our calendars.
I’m Francis Wade and for over two decades I have been studying task management in all its forms. I’m not alone in imagining a new possibility of scheduling everything, and like others, I have also made it part of my daily life.
But I didn’t start out that way. Like many other people, 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!”
I was fortunate. Even though I had surrendered, I met others who found ways to make it work and this encouraged me to keep trying. For about 15 years since then I have made these techniques a regular practice and they have become a cornerstone of what I teach here at ScheduleU.
Perhaps you arrive here with the thought that “These people are not like me, they must be aliens; no ordinary person can actually schedule everything.” Maybe your own first attempt failed.
I am here to tell you that you can be successful. But first, you must believe somewhere within you that this is possible because here you are… visiting a “School for Scheduling Everything.” Yes, you have a full life and yes, there are lots of demands on your time. But you also hate it when you forget to execute a task you commit to complete, even if it’s only one among many.
If so, you may be like many who take our program, A Course in Scheduling: an ambitious, high-achiever who says “Yes, I Can” to a lot of your aspirations. As you reach for the stars, you know that you must add more tasks. Each new “Yes” puts a bit more strain on your current workflow so you find yourself with less free time, in a struggle to manage a schedule that has very little wriggle-room. You may even find yourself increasingly prone to error as you hit the limit of your current behaviors and tools. Your current setup isn’t working the way it used to… and you are looking for fresh ways to be more effective: new options which would lift your level of personal productivity.
Schedule U exists to meet the needs of you and others who also operate near to their limits. As such, it’s not a school for everyone or even the average professional. It’s meant for those who are ready to reconsider their current setup so they can reach their biggest goals.
On this website, I share my story: how I grappled with these skills, first by trying manual techniques. You will also hear from others who schedule everything, (or almost everything) as they reach for higher levels of productivity.
In addition, I’ll expose you to the latest auto-schedulers, and their reliance on cloud computing, the mobile internet and narrow Artifical Intelligence (AI.) They make the act of scheduling everything a real possibility.
These programs are changing everything: one day their power will reside within every digital calendar, working behind the scenes. But until then, tools like SkedPal (which I personally use and work for as a consultant), are having an immediate impact that you can learn to harness here.
But in spite of their power, I can say from experience that new software isn’t enough. Here at Schedule U, you’ll see the best of what I (and others) have learned as we combine personal behavior with new technologies. I will teach you how to expand your individual capacity to manage demands on your time via manual or automatic methods. Plus, I’ll help you decide when an upgrade is right for you and whether a new app is worth the investment. These aren’t trivialities: as I mentioned before. Total Task Scheduling is not for everyone. Neither is any particular app or behavior.
If you happen to be someone who is busy, and stays busy, here’s my invitation: jump into my free, 12-day training: A Course in Scheduling and find out for yourself what it takes to become an effective Total Task Scheduler.
