Do you live by a daily schedule, or do you just go where the wind takes you?
Do have a concrete daily schedule that you follow rigoursly? Do you have daily schedule that you actually stick to? Do you live without a daily schedule and just do whatever you feel like?
Interested to know about your work, personal, and even exercise life!
As long as you have to report to some type of work on a regular basis, it is hard to not fall into a routine, at least for the majority of each day that you work. My off days can be random, but other than that...
If for some strange reason I could be rich, unemployed with monetary benefits, government funded or acted as a sponge or parasite to others, I may perhaps start "going where the wind takes me." LOL!
There is a daily schedule, but not every minute is planned. If the schedule was concrete and rigorously followed, I'd become depressed. So nothing has a time, it's more like a check list to help me feel free.
So do you get everything on the to-do list done or is there wiggle room in that?
Everything gets done usually. If something drastic comes up like a flat tire or being sick, a few things are moved to tomorrow.
I mostly live by a daily schedule, though it is not set in stone. If something comes up, I leave myself some wiggle room to take care of things that need my attention. I am also opened to an occassional distraction, like a trip to the library and an lunch date with my daughter, or a day trip to the state park, or a visit at the art museum... The daily schedule helps keep me focused and i find it's easier to accomplish my regular tasks. However, I also find it tends to be confining, like I'm locked into somthing that I can't get out of after awhile.
I do plan my days with a little wiggle room for interruptions. With most important things in life, it is usually succeeded by a plan (i.e., vacations, business, doctor appointments, etc.). To stay on task, I like to plan to make sure things get done. However, I don't like to be pinned in the corner either, so I do like a little wiggle room.
I am a creature of habit and do not enjoy change whatsoever. So, I must say I live by a daily schedule when possible.
I am free as a bird. I enjoy a schedule but I find that after following it for a few days or even weeks, I grow tired of it and drop it all together. So I have given up, and nowadays I just fly by the seat of my very ample pants.
I work from home with 3 children (1 toddler) so I try to keep to some type of schedule. However when you have employees in the field with issues a schedule is easier said than done. I often don't finish working until 9 or 10 and start all over at 5 am. The only always stick to times we have in our house are dinners and bedtimes.
I use a schedule but I allow it to be a guideline and can be flexible if I need to be. In fact, I often don't stick "exactly" to a schedule so I incorporate that in to my schedule by giving myself a little more time than I may actually need since I probably will not be 100 percent on target. Ironically, I schedule "free" time. I also have "have-to's" and "optionals" scheduled. I also use electronic post-it notes that have tasks and meetings that must be done by a certain date for that week. So when I make my schedule the night before or in the morning I look at those things to make sure I'm fitting them in. I always make my due dates a day earlier than the "real" due date so if I run into a time issue, I have a little bit of wiggle room.
So my schedule might look like the following. (If I put a blank line it means its time I can use for whatever I want or pops up. I name it specifically otherwise.I also use mostly one hour blocks because it helps create a visual of how I'm spending my hours for each day)

Much as I like to be free of tight appointments, there are things I cannot avoid like shopping or helping with the dishes.
I rearrange my schedule when I run in to time trouble, but nothing serious. I keep my pieces intact as much as possible.
Of course there are times when I do miss the pass, like when I am so bogged down with writing that I forget the dinner on the stove, but they are few and far.
Monday through Friday I very much have a schedule. There is the spouses schedule, and the children's school schedule. Wednesdays and Thursdays I add shopping for the household. The weekends is a moderate schedule. Depending on special events, and also my spouse works on the weekend. I fit in writing around all schedules, home cooked meals, cleaning, three separate individuals schedules, walking the dogs, shopping, and sleep. I otherwise continue to flow 24 hours a day. This is the life of someone who has others relying on them for survival. How about you?
Thanks for asking accumulate. I don't have children - only 3 dogs that are quite flexible and do not require a committed schedule throughout the day (besides breakfast and dinner). Therefore the only schedule I need is for work - otherwise free game.
It depends. Right now I am unemployed, so I have some down time, some volunteer time, gym time, hobby time and part-time work time.
When I am employed, it's usually go to work, try to go to the gym, make dinner, relax, sleep and repeat and then try to do fun things on the weekend.
You have to have daily schedule for busy days but on holidays or free days I like just to go where the wind takes me...it is important to have balance, so each of them has a role to play...
I follow a flexible daily schedule when I'm at home. If I just go where the wind takes me, I'd probably find that the wind mostly takes me to funny animal videos on youtube. Sad, but true. I need a daily schedule to accomplish anything.
I can't change my daily schedule because I am happy and satisfy from my daily roteen. I hear the voices of wind and do whatever they say but only on Sunday .
What a good question? For me the only schedule I follow is my work rolling rota. I work as a full time Nursing Care Assistant for the Blind Veterans of UK. I do stick to it. Apart from this, I am so flexible doing the things I want to do when I want to do them. I don't want to put myself into a regime of schedules to avoid any stress. Life is stressful as it is without adding to it. I do a little exercise in the morning if I feel like it but there are some mornings I don't feel like it.
