Community Discussion Do You Use A Schedule?

Perhaps you’re using a schedule right now? We can’t be everywhere online 24/7 (and really, who would want to be?) but our work benefits from being available for the people wherever they are in the world.

I am a huge fan of scheduling, without it I wouldn’t have the work-life balance that I do.

I schedule not only my work days, my blog content and my social media, but often my non-work time too (Friday afternoon is Happy Hour and it must not be disturbed!). I actually feel like I have more flexibility and freedom when I schedule. I wouldn’t be caught dead without CoSchedule and other platforms’ scheduling functions!
