Your calendar is your most important productivity tool. It represents so much — what your commitments are, what your opportunities are, and what is going on in your life and your work.
In fact, we’d even say that your calendar is the true reflection of your priorities. It represents what you ACTUALLY spend your time on, not what you WISH you spend your time on.
Your calendar can be a force for good with your productivity, and in this episode, we’re going to share 3 tips to help you Master Your Calendar and become Jedi level productive.
