The Ultimate High-Performance Schedule

Achieving your goals rarely fits into a schedule built by chance. Achieving your goals is the result of a schedule designed to support your individual needs set in the context and reality of your life. The goal of a high-performance schedule isn't to demand perfection - it's designed to allow you to rely on routine and deal with the distractions and challenges life presents.

High-performers rely on routine and discipline to make progress on their goals. This approach and the attached worksheet will help you design a schedule that will help you accomplish more every day. The ancillary benefit of this strategy is realized through the time you gain when you remove the daily struggle of determining how and where to spend your time.

Measurement is the core of a high-performance schedule.

This strategy is rooted in measurement. All things built well are the result of the simple axiom: measure twice, cut once. Here's how:

Measure the day

  • Using the worksheet, split your schedule into 24 one-hour blocks
  • Fill in time for sleep, family, and friends
  • Fill in time for work
  • Break down your work into tasks

Prioritize the day

  • Organize your task list by priority
  • Schedule each task into your worksheet (higher priorities should always go earlier)
  • Be consistent and follow the routine
  • Don't sweat distractions - let them interrupt and keep your discipline focused on the returning to the daily routine

Sprint twice per month

  • Estimate the total time to complete a task
  • Interrupt the daily routine
  • Blast through a priority until the task is complete

Rely on routine

  • Routine removes destructive thought
  • Don't reinvent the schedule
  • Fill the time you have with the work at hand

Porter's Five Forces

Industry structure changes over time, and is not static. Over time, buyers or suppliers can become more or less powerful. Technological or managerial innovations can make new entry or substitution more or less likely. Changes in regulation can change the intensity of rivalry, or affect barriers to entry. Choices by competition, such as new pricing or distribution approaches, can also affect the path of industry competition.

Managing Up: 1 on 1 Template

Managing your boss is the best way to achieve career goals within any size organization. It requires a consistent, data-driven approach. Meet for at least 30 minutes either weekly or bi-weekly. If you can’t make a meeting, reschedule. Don’t cancel. If your standing meetings keep getting pushed, find a new time to meet. Actively listen and talk freely, these meetings should never feel rushed.
