Colour-Code Your Diary To Get Your 4 Hours a Day
Updated: Sep 10, 2022
A simple tip to maximise your efficiency is to colour-code your diary. By doing this, you can easily see where you’re spending the majority of your time, and can therefore look for ways to better manage your tasks. If you’re spending too much time in meetings, make your hour-long meeting into a 45-minute one, for example.
My green slots are free time. Red Slots General meetings. Purple Slots are important meetings I can’t miss, yellow are 121’s with my team.
Since I’ve joined colour coding my diary has allowed me to achieve my 4 hours a day. Every Tuesday I go through my next week's calendar and block out all my empty slots and change them to green.
Here is an interesting article from Inc about how bad we are with time. :)
