Time Management

Podcast cover
Read more
Today on the Podcast, I go through the system I use for time management.This system is based off Cal Newport’s “5-minute planner” from his book How to Become a Straight-A Student. It is the system that I have used the last several years and has helped me get stuff done while at university, working from home, running my own business, and studying completely online. It is the easiest and most effective system that I have come across so far.In this episode you will learn:
  • The importance of time management
  • What the 5-minute lanner is, and how to use it
  • The key step to ensuring you don’t over or under plan your day
