✓ Let the app help. Use the reminder function of this app to let you know it’s time to plan.

Tips for beginners:

✓ 2-minute is useful. Not just for dealing with your workload, but also for developing a new habit. This rule generally has 2 parts: one for getting tasks that take 2 minutes or less done immediately AND if it’s a new habit you’re developing, it shouldn’t take more than 2 minutes to do.
✓ Make sure you have your tasks sorted that they don’t take more than 2 minutes. If they do, you should schedule them instead of doing them immediately.
Some habits are longer than others, but at the beginning, try to condense them as much as possible.
