10 Things a Day: My New Schedule

My wife and I had coffee last Thursday to discuss our new plans: we are going to have a daily schedule that we follow that will help us avoid distractions and keep us focused.  Here’s my daily schedule that we pieced together:

  1.  Make list of daily tasks and define the Main Project for the day
  2. Check and respond to emails & voice messages 
  3. Tidy up my desk and do administrative tasks (invoicing, late payment notifications)
  4. Write a post to my blog
  5. Take a break for 30 minutes, including checking Google ReaderMacNN, and other favorite sites like Woot.com
  6. Check my clients website ranking with my Rank Tracker software
  7. Work on a website design mock in Illustrator for 1 hour
  8. Take a 40 minute lunch break
  9. Work on the Main Project for 2.5 hours
  10. Chisel away at the rest of my list until 5:00pm
So, that’s my day plan.  Sticking to the plan is the hard part 🙂
