I’ve heard many times that you should create the life you want to live. It’s sound advice, but I think it presupposes that one knows the life they want to live. While I have an idea of what I want to accomplish, I came to the realization that I can’t get there with the chaotic schedule I currently attend to, so I began researching time management<fn>Anyone who knows me should be aware of the fact that managing my own time is not one of my strong suits.</fn>. Among a huge amount of people trying to sell me something I found Ben Franklin’s Schedule, which intrigued me greatly.
After reading more about it, I have decided to give it a try for a bit to see how well it works. Being who I am, I started searching for an Excel template and quickly found a large number of them, but decided to use the one I found on Wolf & Iron to build my own Daily Schedule from.
I don’t know that I will want to stick with this for the long term, but I’m going to this schedule on for a while to see if it will work for me. Just in case this doesn’t work, or there is something better out there, do you have any recommendations I could look at?
