Have you noticed that things tend to get organized around your calendar?
The Power of the Calendar
If something is in your calendar, it’s considered important. If it’s not, it’s often bumped for a meeting or something that will be put in the calendar for that time. The best way to ensure anything gets done is to make sure it’s in your calendar long in advance.
The final step is hopefully the easiest. You need to ensure you and your team have each of these steps added into their Google calendar (or whichever calendar tool you use). This is a really important step to complete. Once something is scheduled in a calendar it becomes a priority that gets done. If it’s not in a calendar, it’s often pushed back in favor of other meetings or things that are.
Remember, all those other daily community tasks you need to do? Removing spam, updating information, etc? They need to be organized around the tactical steps in your calendar today, not the other way round.
So, make sure the steps are in the calendar for you and your team. You do not need to do this for an entire year in advance. However, you might want to do this weekly, staying one month ahead of when the tasks need to be complete.
