Daily Time Table
Each day there are specific tasks to fulfil, these tasks are to be noted in the to-do list section. Some examples, going to the gym, reading specific chapters of a book, tending to the garden, fixing that broken pipe, attending a lecture or meeting, and so on.
The tasks on the left can coincide with the time track on the right. The time track starts at 4am, and ends at 3am. The four columns are where you plot the allocated time and task.
The top right is where you identify a weekly goal. This can be nailing that personal record at the gym, completing an assement or report prior to the due date, or asking that girl you like out on a date and preparing materials ahead of time.
The first column on the left is where you can note the time, or special reminders. While the date columns throughout the week are where you can write your to-do list, tasks and even activities that work towards your weekly goal.
The weekly plan is not goal-centric, it is more similar to the time table. The time for the week starts at 4am and can end at midnight (24) or at 3am (located on the following page). For this time table, you can allocate the specific time necessary for a task.
Perhaps use a highlighter, and highlight over the time row and write over with the task you have in mind for that designated time.
What you lack in natural ability can be made up for in discipline.
