Day 3442 – The Importance Of Routines And Systems In Your Life

One thing I’m constantly refining and fine-tuning are my routines and systems. I pay attention to my habits and try to change the bad ones and add the good ones.

A great current example of my systems at work is the reprinting of my to-do list. I’ve talked before that I have multiple to-do lists – daily ones written on notepads and a printed weekly one. The printed to-do list is mostly a guide for the week, what I want to blog about, keeping my days organized, seeing what’s scheduled, and big reminders on each day.

I just finished printing out my to-dos for the next few weeks. We’re going to Cali for the holidays, so being organized in what needs to be done is pretty important. I plotted out what I want to blog about for most of the days and other priority things that need to be done.

It’s a really nice feeling knowing that I have a plan for the coming weeks. I’m currently reading It Doesn’t Have To Be Crazy At Work, and the biggest thing is about having a calm work environment and how important that is. While I have a pretty decently calm environment and day, there are some things that add to “not calm” so I’m working on trying to minimize them. Having my to-dos all ready to go definitely adds to the calm.

I have checklists for so many areas of my life and it really helps to have a workflow for things you do often – because it can be easy to miss something. This is where Asana is my best friend, because I can set up those recurring reminders and know things will get done.

Do you have routines and systems in your life?
