Why do these people adhere to a schedule?

When faced with carrying out multiple tasks of varying nature, a schedule helps in keeping track of what’s coming up so that people can be prepared beforehand and do not miss any critical tasks. These schedules help them organize their valuable time and help them maintain sanity by giving a particular structure to an otherwise unstructured day.

What other benefits are there in adhering to a schedule?

Besides providing an anchor line each day, a person who is able to follow a schedule benefits from:

1. Better time and priority management

Work-life balance comes from prioritization of the right task at the right time and demarcating time between work and personal activities. A schedule is but a visual, recorded representation of management of these aspects.

2. Improving work ethics

Be it professional or personal work, people may sometimes slack off owing to low energy or lack of motivation. A person disciplined enough to follow a schedule over anything else is able to do what is required instead of giving in to their work practice vices.

3. Increasing confidence on one’s own capability to do things

When a person spends considerable time with the habit of following schedules, the inculcated discipline and the ability to follow what was planned instills a sense of profound confidence within the person to get things done or, in more simpler terms, achieve what they plan to achieve.

4. Improves planning capacity and adaptability

With the habit of coming up with a schedule helps a person hone their planning capabilities over time. And not everyday would be ideal in following a schedule owing to ad-hoc asks from life itself. In such days, the schedule may have to be re-planned within a short period’s notice, restructure the remaining part of the day and adapt to the changing circumstances, quickly and efficiently. This helps a persons to learn to adapt to new situations on-the-fly without missing a beat in order to achieve what they set out to achieve that day irrespective of the unforeseen circumstances.
