3-Step Planning Workflow

Consistent success requires consistent planning.

The Day Optimizer planning workflow helps you create realistic schedules focused on your work priorities while maintaining a work-life balance.

The 3 steps were designed based on neuroscience principles to optimize the planning process.

  • 1. Commit

    Decide explicitly what you plan to do today & commit to only those things to stay focused.

  • 2. Allocate

    Allocate how much time you want to spend on each item, to make progress or complete it.

  • 3. Schedule

    Create a schedule to keep you on track and see your available time to prioritize effectively.

Done Today vs Done Forever

  • Monday

    You work on a task, but don't complete it. You mark it Done Today and move to the next task.

  • Tuesday

    The task reappears in your planning flow. You make progress and mark it Done Today again.

  • Wednesday

    You complete the task and mark it Done Forever. The task no longer appears in your planning flow.

Make progress on your critical tasks daily without losing track of them.

When you’re done working on a task for the day, mark it Done Today. It’ll reappear in your planning flow tomorrow.

Once the task is complete, mark it Done Forever.
