Be Your Eagle Daily Planner: Improve +1% Productivity Each Week

Written By:

Assess. Prioritise. Focus

These are the 3 things that we all want to do. Specifically, the 3 things that you want from a daily planner. And also the 3 things that the Be Your Eagle Daily Planner has.

In June, we are launching a daily planner with a twist. That is, we’ve moved away from the glorified to-do lists and have created a planner that achieves real behavioural change.

The Be Your Eagle Daily Planner will achieve a +1% productivity increase for you every single week. Consequently, based on the continuous improvement formula, this will equate to a +29.5% productivity increase over 6 months.

3 Time Management Techniques

All in all, the key to this planner is the reinforcement of 3 key time management techniques:

Throughout the planner, you learn, recall, use, track and coach these 3 techniques, which allows you to cement the learning and achieve time management behavioural change.

1. Eisenhower’s Matrix

Firstly, Eisenhower’s Matrix allows you to assess your to-do list by filling in the Matrix every day based on which of your tasks are urgent and important, and which are not. So this allows you to become aware of which tasks are high priority, and which you were spending time on but were perhaps neither urgent nor important.

2. Eat That Frog

Now our second famous technique, Eat That Frog, is from Mark Twain who suggested that if your job involved eating a frog, you’d want to get that task out of the way first. And if your job involved eating two frogs, then you’d want to eat the biggest first.

So the idea is that you start your day with the most challenging task, and then the endorphins from getting that big task done, propel you to complete the rest of your tasks.

3. Cabbage Butterfly

Now this technique follows the idea that cabbage butterflies fly from cabbage to cabbage, creating holes all over the patch but never finishing a cabbage. Unfortunately, this is what we do at work – flit from task to task, never fully completing anything.

Moreover, the Cabbage Butterfly technique helps you to stay focused and complete a task from start to end.

Why An Eagle?

Now, you might be asking yourself, ‘Why an Eagle?’. Well, allow us to explain…

Note that the Eagle metaphor that we use comes from this African fable

 

The above is a screenshot from the second page of the daily planner and gives you a feel for what you have in store.

Now here is a sneak peek of the Today’s Goals page to spark that excitement! Note that this is the page that you will use most frequently and will be instrumental in your behavioural change.

Today’s Thermals

So you may have spotted on the Today’s Goals page, a box entitled ‘Today’s Thermal’. Each ‘Today’s Thermal’ offers a tip or small action to take your behavioural change even further. Note that when warm air rises, a thermal is formed, which carries the eagle effortlessly high. So this is what your Today’s Thermal does for you, carries you effortlessly high.

Why Choose ‘Be Your Eagle’?

Firstly, the Be Your Eagle planner achieves a +1% productivity increase every week. Basically, this means that following the continuous improvement formula, across the span of the planner (6 months), you will achieve a productivity increase of +29.5%.

Additionally, unlike the producers of many other planners, we are time management trainers first rather than printers first. And this gives us the advantage of understanding how to achieve time management behavioural change.
