Focus on your writing goals, get organized, and maintain a positive frame of mind by downloading the TIME & MANAGEMENT GRID SYSTEM.

Time Management by Robin Van Auken the Wholehearted AuthorTo help you manage the burgeoning responsibilities in your life, focus on your writing goals, and maintain a positive frame of mind, we recommend trying the Time Management Grid, developed by Stephen Covey, and featured in “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”

This system is an effective tool for organizing your priorities. It’s especially useful for writers because we live in a time­-pressured world with overlapping commitments that all require our immediate attention.

Use the grids on the following pages to organize your tasks into four quadrants organized by urgency and importance. Try it for two weeks and see if your schedule has improved, as well as your outlook.

This is an interactive PDF, editable by you. Save the Master PDF to your computer, make a copy, and use it every day for 14 days.  Let us know if your life has been improved by the Time Management Grid.  We’d love to hear from you.
