#750 47. Actively block out task time on your calendar.
 Actively block out task time on your calendar. Everyone schedules meetings and appointments. Go a step further and block out time to complete specific tasks. Slot periods for “Write new proposal” or “Craft presentation” or “Review and approve marketing materials.”
If you don’t proactively block out that time, those tasks will slip. Or get interrupted. Or you’ll lose focus. And important tasks won’t actually get done.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
