Time management helps me remain composed.

Managing my schedule helps me be effective with my time usage. It enables me to plot time blocks and anticipate events. I identify priorities and keep my obligations organised.

Finding a balance between work and leisure is challenging.

By structuring my commitments, I distinguish where my free time is located. I plan small patches of free time as a buffer for the unexpected. By creating breathing room in my schedule, time buffers double as stress buffers.

My detailed schedule helps prevent me from overextending myself. I keep my stress level at a minimum by having a methodical plan of attack each day. Updating my calendar ensures that I keep an eye on future events.

Knowing my next engagement grants me the ability to mentally prepare.

I am focused and ready for each new task and obligation. When the day is full, it flies by. On days when my schedule is light, I use the extra time to my advantage. I accomplish tasks that have been set aside. I try to get ahead of schedule on assignments.

Today, I plan for tomorrow.

I keep an eye on the horizon in an effort to avoid surprises. By approaching the week with foresight, I see the bigger picture of challenges to come. I ensure that my plan is thorough and reasonable.
