Be mindful with your time
The ability to spend your time the way you need to is a superpower, and many don’t quite understand it. And if you give away any of that power to someone else, your day can become a mess.
There are many tools out there to help you organise your time. Obviously, we're talking about to-do lists and productivity apps in general. There's one app that I have been using. Was using, am you... that's the whole point of the video, was using, I go to say now, to help me organise, getting appointments.
So I had a button on my website saying, book a call. Now it's a great idea. And it's a fantastic idea. And I'm going to test out whether I should use or. I will be using it or not, but right now, I've actually taken it off of my website. And the reason I've taken off of my website is that the whole point of having your time is to not let anyone inject any of their influence into your time or put anything into your calendar.
You've got to be the bearer of your agenda, what you do during the day, or with all your tasks and everything and your meetings. If you have them. So you don't really want people putting anything in there that you don't know, now, the way I was dealing with that. I was basically blocking off time per day as to when people were able to call me basically or to book those appointments.
So I knew at that moment, at that period of time, and he was usually a window of like two or three hours, it was two hours, two hours per day, where people could, book time now. It does work, and it did work, but I want to go down the route of I don't even want that—part of it to be, an influence in my day.
So what I've done is actually taken off of my website. So if you want to talk to me, send me a message. And then if I'm free, which is quite a lot of the time, because of the way I organise my day. We'll just hop on a call because kind of dry calling someone effectively, I think, is kind of off-putting, but also the main reason is I don't want anyone inserting or having an influence on my agenda, basically.
And so putting things into my agenda. So I've taken off so Calendly, which is one of the services. There are several other ones now as well, which are fantastic. They've been a godsend really for certain things, but on the other side, it's a double-edged sword on the other side of the sword, as it were. I think it's putting too much influence on your agenda.
So for me, I'm going to try without it and see how it goes. So I just wanted to bring that to your attention in the sense of. That's how I'm dealing with things but obviously to your attention and sense of figure out what has an outside influence on your time into your agenda. Anyway, that's the video. Have a great day, April the first.
So this isn't a joke. I'll see you in the next one. Take care, Caio.
