How To Stick To Your Schedule

How to Stick To Your Schedule

There are two types of people in the world: those who set up a super detailed schedule to follow and do it to a T and those who also set up a super detailed schedule but end up doing nothing that's on it and instead choose to focus on completely random things. This post is for those people.

If you're someone who just can't stick to a schedule, no matter how hard you try, your first question is probably 'Why can't I just stick to my schedule?'. Well, it most likely doesn't have anything to do with you personally bu the way you've built your schedule. Maybe you're not a morning person so those huge tasks you've scheduled in the morning should be moved to the afternoon since you're much more likely to just lay in bed than do them. Little changes like that can make a huge difference in your productivity.

Here are a few ways you can stick to your schedule and follow through with the things you set yourself up to do.


When creating your schedule, high-priority tasks, or non-negotiables, should be the first things you schedule in. Make sure you schedule them at times where you know you're most likely to do them. Like I mentioned above, if you're not a morning person, for example, don't schedule those tasks early in the morning. 

 Once those are scheduled in, you can start scheduling the other tasks you'd like to accomplish that week. Keep in mind that you shouldn't schedule things one after the other as it's very likely you'll end up not doing them. Scheduling in breaks and as important as scheduling in actual tasks. 


Let's say you've scheduled in some time to exercise but you never do it. Maybe that's because of lack of motivation- I have a whole blogpost about what to do when you're not feeling motivated- or maybe it's because you start thinking about

all the work that you'll have to put in just to set your space so that you can exercise. This is a fairly easy thing to resolve: have your workout gear somewhere easily accessible, and preferably somewhere you can see it often so that you'll be reminded to workout. 

The same goes for non-physical tasks. If you've scheduled in a blogpost writing session, have a little template of all the steps it takes for you to write those posts. That way you will not be stumbling around confused and not knowing where to start and what to do.

Hot pink is one of the major trending colors for this Autumn/Winter season.

However, it can be pretty easy to incorporate this color into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, whether you do it by using accessories of pieces of clothing. Here are a few ways you can do so.

What To Do When You're Not Feeling Motivated

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

Motivation is a tricky thing. Sometimes, you get it randomly and want to do anything and everything on your to-do list. Other times, however, no matter what you do, the motivation just isn't there. It's only natural for these kinds of things to happen so don't stress yourself out too much when you just can't seem to do anything.

There are a few things you can do, however, in order to regain a little bit of that motivation back. Let me break them down for you.


Let's say you've planned to write a blogpost today but you just can't find the motivation and willingness to do it. The best solution is not to just give up and sit on the couch binge-watching a show on Netflix. What you should be doing instead of writing that post is, for example, schedule in tweets, editing photos for your Instagram and other things that are blog-related but that are not writing the blogpost.


When you really need to do something but you really don't feel like it, try setting a timer for  10 or 2 minutes and do as much as you can on that set amount of time. After the timer ends, you might be so into the task that you will want to continue or you might want to stop. Both are completely acceptable so don't feel bad about it.


Sometimes you're not motivated because you're not feeling your best, so have a bit of a pamper day or just a few hours even.


Having something to look forward is motivation in it of itself.  For example, if you say ''Okay, if I finish writing this post in the next hour, I'm going to treat myself to a nice bowl of ice cream.'' you are much more likely to complete that task.
