If you start your mornings looking for your keys, wondering where you left your glasses, and scrambling through your closet looking for something to wear, this tip is for you.
A smooth flowing, productive day begins the night before. Purchase a note pad that you keep near your night table. Before you retire in the evening, sit for a few minutes and think of all the things you need to do the following day and write them down. It helps to think through the day chronologically.
Next, set out the clothes you will wear. Make sure car keys, glasses, and other essentials are in your handbag. As you’re making these preparations in a relaxed manner, you will probably think of one or two additional things that need to go on your list.
By planning your day the night before, you will be able to spend the new day acting upon the things you need to do rather than planning them or wasting time trying to remember what it was you needed to do in the first place. As a side benefit, you will probably get a much better night’s sleep.
