While each person’s schedule is different, the purpose of keeping a schedule is the same for everyone. Living by your own creative tendencies, rationalizations, and emotional whims will not suffice. Sheer perspiration will come only from organizing your energy and holding yourself accountable with some sort of routine. - Quote from Making Ideas Happen, by Scott Belsky
If I live on a “reactive” day-to-day basis, where I don’t plan my days I’m sure I’ll miss out on a lot of opportunities, because I’m not living up to my potential. By always acting reactively to the stuff happening around me, and to me, I’ll constantly be one step behind.
However, if I plan my days, if I schedule what I want, and what needs to be done, I’m striving to reach those goals. Resulting in a life where I am living up to my potentional.
