Stop everything you’re doing and read the article below.
If you’re struggling to make each day as successful as possible, then pay very close attention to what I’m about to share with you about “Jim’s Daily Success Sheet,” my proven, personal daily planning sheet that enables entrepreneurs to make each day as efficient and successful as possible.
In short, this is my personal daily planning sheet that helps you maximize how you organize and track your time.
I’m suggesting you should use this tool because it’s a simple tool I’ve designed for my own use over the years. I’ve put it through at least 20 different tweaks in the last 3-4 years as I’ve learned what does and does not work for me personally as far as how I spend my time each day. Rather than spend money and time on generic solutions (Day Runner, Day Planner, etc.) I chose to design my own sheet.
Here’s how Jim’s Daily Success Sheet helps you…
You can use this sheet to help you quickly and easily plan your day. It helps you instantly see the most important tasks of the day and also track your time (both estimated and actual) which helps you plan your time even more efficiently in the future.
By the way, I also like having a physical sheet of paper to write on as it makes activity planning and tracking seem more “real” and tangible. Plus, it gives me an instant record I can refer back to later. I also use the sheet to record ideas as they come to me (so I don’t lose them) and then transfer them to my idea journal later in the day.
Here’s your action plan to put my personal daily planning sheet to work immediately:
Download the sheet from this link: https://thejimedwardsmethod.com/daily-success-page/
Print off a few copies and put them on your desk.
Each night before you quit work, list off the most important things you’ll do tomorrow along with the estimated time to accomplish each item.
Also, copy over (by hand) any and all appointments into the right column. (I use Google Calendar as my calendar.)
Finally, block out the time on the right side for when you’ll do the action items from the left side. This will give you a complete picture of when and where you’ll spend your time. (It also creates appointments with yourself for when you’ll do the items on your ”to do” list.) This is key for actually getting things done rather than have them roll over day after day without completion.
By using this sheet you will have:
Planned your day.
Prioritized your most important activities.
Allocated your time.
Planned your next day.
Enabled yourself to stop working at the end of the day knowing you maximized your time to the best of your ability and taken steps to get even better at using your time moving forward.

Is Your Bucket Full?
I was talking with a friend yesterday, and we were discussing the now ever-present problem of not enough time and not enough mental resources to deal with all the information and data that bombards us daily.
I said to him, “It feels like my mind is a bucket filled up with cherry Kool-Aid. When it fills up, there’s no room for more stuff without the liquid overflowing the sides. And when things overflow, it makes a huge mess!”
When your mind is too full, you can’t take on more “stuff” without your cherry Kool-Aid sloshing over the sides… and let me tell you, as a grandpa of two active little boys, cherry Kool-Aid makes one helluva mess no matter what you spill it on!
Is your mind or business life too full? Do you feel like you can’t take on another thing without bursting or “going crazy”?
If so, here are a few suggestions for clearing things out:
#1 – Make a list of all the things you’re working on right now and pick the NUMBER ONE most important thing. Work on that until it’s either done or to the point where someone else can take over.
#2 – Get back in touch with WHY you’re doing everything you’re doing in the first place. If everything you do is only for the almighty dollar (or pound, or yen), then your go-power will soon peter out. You need a reason bigger than yourself to get you over the rough spots.
#3 – Make work fun! Get out from behind the computer and try different settings and different mediums. Try working outside on your iPad. Go sit in your easy chair with paper and pen. Go crazy on your whiteboard and use every color marker you have. Sometimes work feels like work because you’re in a rut. Maybe you just need a change of scenery and input.
When their bucket is overflowing, most people think about how they can make their bucket bigger (take on MORE)… but that’s NOT the solution.
Think about this…
A bucket that’s 10% full of gold is worth a LOT MORE than a bucket that’s 100% full of sand (no matter how pretty and white the sand)… and the gold-filled bucket still has 90% of the room left for things (other than work) that are truly important to you.
Get rid of the crap that’s not working for you mentally, physically, and emotionally… empty out your bucket and fill it up first with the most valuable things you want in your life right now!
