Ep 143: Calendars – the map is not the territory

In this episode, Richard explores how to get the most from your calendar. A valuable tool when it comes to planning and productivity, but if mis-used, a source of overwhelm and stress.

Calendars allow us to visualise our commitments and to see how we’re planning to invest our limited time and attention. They can help minimise the risk of over-commitment or double-booking. That said, the modern work environment often means our calendars are filled by other people, representing an unmanageable and overwhelming commitment.

In this episode, we look at some simple principles to aid in getting the most from the calendar, retaining it as a tool and avoiding it becoming a source of stress.

Thanks for listening!
