Can you fit all your work into 1 day

Wouldn't it be great to have more time

We know your days are full of clients, tools, materials, and problems, and it's not always easy to keep things on track. But don’t worry, because today's email is all about helping you plan better. So grab a coffee and let's dive in.


Your time is worth money so you want to make the most of it. Here's how:


  • Make a to-do list for the day. You want to meet deadlines first and any other important jobs next. Writing this out helps you understand what you have to do. Do similar jobs at the same time. For example, make phone calls together, do paperwork in one go, and plan time to work on site. It stops you wasting time switching between jobs over and over.
  • Think of your day as a team sport. Before you hit the field (or the job site, in your case), gather your team for a quick morning huddle. Discuss the day's tasks, goals, and any challenges. This 10 minutes of planning can set you up for a good day. If you don’t have a team you can still use this time to think about the day on your own.
  • Today there's an app for almost everything, including planning your day. Google has a calendar and tasks list. Plus there are others around. Simply search Google to find these.
  • Planning is important, but don't forget to leave some time for the problems that life gives you. Extra time in your planning can save you from stress when problems happen. If a job takes longer or traffic is bad you’ll be happy to have the extra time.
  • Sometimes, you don't have to do it all on your own. If you can, give other people jobs or work with them. This frees up your time and allows you to do what you do best.
  • Every week go over your plan and change it if you need to. If you see that some work always take longer than you thought change your plan.


Planning isn't about squeezing every second out of your day. It's about working smarter, not harder. These tips will help your days flow smoothly.
