How to Create a 24 Hour Schedule Template in Apple Pages

According to the article published by the University of Georgia, time is like money: it is both precious and scarce; that is why it has to be preserved, used, and budgeted wisely. How we use time depends on the skills learned through self-analysis, planning, assessment, and self-control. Now, if you want to use your time wisely, making a 24-hour schedule is the best way to achieve it. For your convenience, we created a step-by-step guide below that you can follow. Here's how:

1. Identify your Objectives

First off, you must identify your objectives before you get to the actual planning. On a sheet of paper, write down your initial goals and ask yourself how you can achieve them. That way, it will help you stay focused and visualize how you will overcome the challenges as you reach your goals.

2. Plot your Activities

Once you've already identified your goals, it's time to refer to your calendar and plot your target activities. It doesn't matter if you use a traditional or digital calendar as long as it gives you the present date, it's good. It is also up to you to decide whether you'll write your daily or weekly activities. Once you're finished plotting the days and dates, write it automatically on your schedule for you to be guided.

3. Prioritize the Significant Ones

If you're an employee, you must prioritize your work schedule, or else you won't be productive at the end of the day. Write down your target activities from the beginning to the end of your shift so you'll be guided. But if you're still a student, then you must instead write down your class schedule, study schedule, and any other schedule that's school-related. Never make your leisure plans a priority for it will only distract you from your goals.

4. Use and Edit our Template

Since you have already prioritized your activities, it's time for you to state it in your final schedule template. But if you haven't made one yet, then we highly recommend you use our templates that are available on the upper portion of our page. Each of those templates comes with ready-made designs so there's no need for you to start from a blank canvass. All you have to do is to insert the daily schedule you've made above and you're done. Editing these templates will never be an issue especially if you have any iOS devices as they can all be accessed with every version of Apple Pages.

5. Save and Follow your Schedule

Since we're living in the digital age, printing is already considered a non-issue. If you're done, you may save your file and save it on any mobile device that allows you to view it whenever. But if you choose to follow the traditional way, then you may print it on a high-quality paper and carry your schedule wherever you go. Lastly, follow everything you have written on your schedule for you to be more productive.
