You might be thinking about jotting down the things you want to do tomorrow so you can wake up with in the morning with a clear idea of what needs doing. An all-too-familiar feeling that creeps up is one that tells you “it can wait.” If you want to get things done well and efficiently tomorrow, don’t listen to that feeling. Listen to the tips in this article instead. They’ll show you the benefits of early daily planning and how you can start enjoying them. Let’s dive in.

You’ll Have Time to Revise

Planning tomorrow’s to-do list today gives you the advantage of having the time to go over it. It stays in your mind for longer and you have the chance to see that maybe task A should actually come after task C, for example. Planning it on the actual day of the tasks, though, makes it nearly impossible to make those little tweaks that can greatly boost your efficiency. The earlier you do your daily planning, the less rigid it will be.

For example, you plan to do grocery shopping at noon but a friend texts you to meet them for a coffee 30 minutes before that. Because you’ve had the plan in your head for longer, you can realize how exactly to modify it so you can accommodate meeting your friend. A plan you just came up with is difficult to play around with in that way.

You’ll Save Time

It’s simple: the fifteen or so minutes you use to plan to-do lists today is time you can use to actually execute those plans tomorrow. If you have a busy day ahead, you might find that the time you used to plan your day will help you meet deadlines with a bit more time to spare. Additionally, planning today means you’re in much less of a rush tomorrow. It’s amazing what being relaxed can do to your overall mood and productivity, so plan today and reap those benefits.

You’ll Wake Up Prepared

Mental preparation is sometimes the special ingredient to giving the items on your schedule your best shot. Simply knowing that you’ve got to do A, B, and C after a good night’s rest can help you wake up ready to tackle those tasks with your full potential. That’s in contrast to going to bed unsure of what exactly needs to be done when you get up in the morning.

Planning tomorrow’s tasks today also gives you the option of having more relaxed sleep. Well-constructed to-do lists are one less thing you have to worry about, giving you the luxury of descending into good, concern-free slumber.

Writing tomorrow’s to-do lists on the day is an option, sure. A lot of people would argue, however, that it’s not worth the stress and the rushing you might end up having to do. Plan your day today and you can wake up tomorrow rested, energized, and ready to tick off the items on your daily plan with precision, efficiency, and a little gratitude that this article made your life so much simpler.
