Procrastination is a universal phenomenon that everyone relates to. In this circuit breaker period, time seems to be fully within our control. How have you been managing it?
If you struggle with putting things off until they are a little too late, we'll show you how to start planning it right with the Pie Chart Of Time.

Things that you must complete no matter what. Eg. work time, family time, exercise time, self-care

Things that will further your growth and learning. Eg. reading, online courses, exploring new interests
Building healthy habits to make your day more productive. Eg. Stretching, taking breaks, eating well, don’t multitask

With your ideal pie chart of time as a guide, pen out your daily schedule and make adjustments as you go along.
Now comes the tough part: turning the pie chart into a habit. Here's some food for thought:
Now, go forth and plan out your schedule! Till we meet again.
