I know that headline doesn't seem to make sense, but it really does. Stick with me on this one.
Front loading is time consuming when you're getting things set up. For example, I wanted to set up my running schedule as I prepare for my next half-marathon. Rather than go day by day to look to see what my workout is going to be which will take time to do, I decided to right each one in my Body Minder Journal at the top of each page. It took the better part of an hour to do and I was beginning to wonder if I had made a mistake to try it.
However, I now know what each one of my workouts is going to be and I can look ahead at the top of any page to see what I have coming up.I don't have to go through my training book to the page I need in order to see what my workout is supposed to be for the day. In the long run, I know it will save me more time.
Next up is Evernote for setting up my morning and evening routines as well as my to-do lists. Now that I've been through the front loading process, I can be prepared for it to take some extra time but then I know I won't have to try to remember my routine. I can just look at Evernote and follow what I'm going to do. It will take the thinking off my mind and I can just get going!
If you want to find out more or need some help get something like this set up, let me know!
