Plan for tomorrow

Every day, before I finish work, I plan for tomorrow.

As I said yesterday, I already know what I need to achieve this week, this month, the next three months and so on, in a great big chain up to my five year plan.

So, knowing what I need to do this week, it should be pretty obvious what I need to do tomorrow.

As I said the other day, I have blocks of time in my diary marked as "priority". Each day, I rename tomorrow's block into "Project X" or "Project Y" or whatever it is that will most move me towards this week's goal.

This means, each day, my plan adapts, but I keep heading in the same direction. It's like going from London to Leeds, discovering that the M1 is shut, so cutting cross country and taking the A1 instead. The route might change, but the destination's the same.

And I still have half a day spare each day to deal with all the other stuff, the things that don't move me towards that end goal.

Take action: What's your plan for tomorrow?
