No matter how strict or flexible our schedule is, we always end up wishing for a change. Rigid schedules ask for flexibility and flexible ones for structure. I've been there.
In my experience, defining your goals helps you move faster—if you know what you want to achieve in a given week, you can reserve time in advance.
I'm designing a weekly schedule with time blocks for the activities I want to do every week. Think of blocks to write, sketch, record, edit, stream, work, meet, disconnect, exercise, plan, or organize. Everything you want to do—digital and analog—with a dedicated slot in your calendar.
I'll reserve blocks of time for my core activities and iterate by reducing or expanding their time slots.
It's not more than saying I'll write for two hours when I wake up on Mondays and I'll live stream Thursday nights, but it helps a lot.
