As anyone who’s trying to build a career and raise a family knows, life does not always go according to plan. Weather, illnesses, and so forth can wreak havoc on any schedule.
And yet, planning still matters even when life doesn’t go according to plan. When you know what’s important, you can make sure you get to those priorities even if the less-important stuff doesn’t happen. When you’ve seen potential problems, and identified back-up slots, you can often get to things even when troubles arise.
In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, Sarah and I discuss how to manage life when life doesn’t go as planned. Certain practical strategies can help us create resilient schedules that can absorb life as it actually happens.
In the Q&A section we talk about how to handle transitions. A listener feels like she loses a lot of time moving from one task to the next, and asks for tips on either minimizing this or accommodating it.
