This is one of those things that seems obvious, but I am always amazed of how many people don’t do it. One of the first things in the morning need to be check your calendar.
Make sure that you check yesterday first. That it is an easy way to make cheap wins, and even better, if a meeting was cancelled, you will be able to add the reschedule task into your list of tasks.
Then check Today. This will allow you to know, how crazy your day will be. Have ten meetings, make sure you block time to eat. Maybe stop and buy bottles of water to keep yourself hydrated.
Finally check Tomorrow. Is there anything that require preparation? Tomorrow is not the day for preparation. If there is, can you reschedule stuff from today? How are you going to accomplish that? This is the time to plan that, not tomorrow, not at six in the afternoon when you are tired.
i.e I know people that check not only tomorrow but up to five days in the future, yes, everyday.
