Experience #1: Don’t worry about things being forgotten
Everything was documented in one place, and it went through a preliminary scheduling process. Once I come across a new thing, I simply record it in that place, give a roughly planned date, and then I continue to do the thing at hand with peace of mind, not worrying about forgetting what I just did, consuming minimal energy. The plan here is just a preliminary arrangement, it doesn’t have to be strictly executed, it’s really a matter of managing things.
I will periodically check the things that have not been done, at this time everything will be divided into several categories, such as important, urgent, general and so on, important things will be valued and can be added to the things to be done, general things can be simply deleted, the principle is that there is a primary and secondary.
Experience #2: Have something definite to do every day
Having a plan for each day is really a matter of time management, not thing management. At the beginning of each day, I would go to the things to do list for the day and determine a specific time plan according to my schedule.
The rest is to do things strictly according to the time plan for the day, don’t think of anything else, and try to finish as planned.
If something urgent is interrupted, you can move on to the urgent matter and return to the original plan when you are done with it.
Experience #3: A sense of control over work and life
If there is no plan, or the plan is not done, let yourself have no peace of mind. When all the things you want to do are recorded, planned, and done literally every day without the distractions of regret, it gives you a sense of being in control.
No matter how hard or complex things are, break it down to doing it little by little each day, don’t worry about it, and allow yourself to focus on things and you’ll have a better chance of doing your best.
Experience #4: Always learn to progress, never get bored
It’s a knowledge society now and often some things are closely related to dealing with knowledge. If we’re just processing information when we’re doing things, we’re not getting ahead, and we have to summarize the information about things into knowledge in order to make the most of the value of things themselves.
When dealing with things, we can categorize the relevant information into knowledge categories and periodically go over it, expand on it, and if you like, with practice, can take an area that you’re not very good at and learn it in depth.
When you’re bored, you don’t have to use social app, news app to browse aimlessly, you can take the initiative to dig into the knowledge in this information explosion society with your knowledge base, you don’t have to worry about boredom, just worry about not enough time.
