I know you are probably looking at the tile, you are probably thinking that I am going to tell you all of the ways to become an OCD planning obsessed person like me. Instead, I am giving you my tips and tricks that involve planning to make life easier and strengthen habits.
Start off by figuring out what you want to tackle. It could be anything: workout plans, morning/night routines, or even just plan to increase productivity. These are all minor things that don’t require you to think too far ahead because planning every move of your future may not be the smartest thing to do.
Once you have figured out what you want to tackle, whip out a calendar so you can see your availability in regards to dates and times. When you are able to see every option, you can make the smartest decision and see every possibility, which will help choose what’s best for you.
Next is going to take some research and a little bit of Excel. If you are trying to plan a workout, look up methods for ways to workout and workouts to chunk up your time. You can use that to plan out what you want to do day by day. When you are making a routine or trying to improve habits, write up a plan on how you will tackle them. Print out that plan (workout or routine) and put it somewhere where you can see it every day as a reminder to follow through with your plan. The more you do something, the more it becomes a habit. When you keep yourself into the groove of doing something, you will steer away from looking at the plan and do it naturally.
I will say that you can go through the whole spiel of making a plan but it will not do any good unless you keep up with it. The plan is only as good as the person behind it. You have to make it a commitment and force yourself to follow through. There may be days of feeling unmotivated, but you have to make it worthwhile and keep up the routine.
This is the basics of planning things, I hope my tips helped. As always, stay vibin.
