Life & Productivity Hack | Organizing IB Analyst / PE Associate Tasks

Hey Everyone,

Recently read a great article on Morning Brew about Goal Setting. It sparked an idea to crowd source this forum not specifically for goal setting frameworks but for the best in class day-to-day organizational framework. I'm sure everyone who has done IB, PE, VC, HF, etc. has had days where you have a MILLION PLATES SPINNING.

 

What frameworks have you guys used to keep them from falling (i.e. pen / paper, OneNote, Excel, Sticky Notes, etc.)

 

Hopefully this is helpful for all the younger monkeys out there, including myself!

Half an hour of planning for the day post the work-out session. I prefer a spreadsheet, calendar alerts, and an alarm on my phone. Between all the notifications and stress, the last one acts as a good enough reminder of what I am supposed to do in the next hour. 

One really dumb piece of advice - I also say 'no' to a lot of things. I understand that not a lot of people are in a place to do that. But, it helps me focus on things that matter.
