HOW I Colour Code my Diary 😐
WHY I Colour Code my Diary 😍
DATELINE: GEORGETOWN, PENANG, MALAYSIA
My coaching business turns 18 this year.
Lots has changed since 2006 – I was coaching SMEs pre-Facebook, pre-GFC, and even before any of the Marvel Movies!
One thing that hasn’t changed is my use of colour to manage my diary. And if something stays strong for so long, it must be for a good reason.
Do you colour code your calendar? Want to learn more?
1. Blackboard Fridays Episode #42 – How and Why to Colour Code Your Diary
You’ve probably noticed that I use a lot of colour, and if you’ve been watching a lot of episodes you will see that the colours I use are quite deliberate. It’s true – my colour coding system is all part of the overall business system that we use to guide entrepreneurs to run better businesses.
The most powerful way my clients take these colours and use them in their every day life, is by colour-coding their diaries / calendars / schedules. Adding colour adds meaning, and the outcome is a more focused use of your time, and better team support.
In this week’s episode I explain the specific colours I use for meetings and tasks, and why grouping my diary into chunks of the different colours helps me achieve more in the same amount of time.
You can use whatever colours you want – but notice how these colours fit into the Como business system with the Momentum Meeting Schedule from episode 37, the Roles & Responsibilities we discussed in episodes 7 – 9, and all the way back to the Business Lifecycle that is so critical it was the focus of Blackboard Fridays Episode 1.
