Back in 2017, as a project manager for my previous company, I used to schedule a lot of meetings. That got me into the habit of scheduling. Even today, I send a reminder for all my one-on-one sessions.
However, scheduling can be beyond interpersonal meetings. I see my phone calendar as my planner for the day. One view at my calendar tells me how packed or free my day is. In fact, I go one step further and input any activity that affects my day. For Example - My social commitments, my daughter's school timings, my work calls, reading time, husband's travel and even my nap timings for the day.
The obvious advantage of scheduling which involves another person/team is punctuality. Additionally, this gives a clear vision on how the day looks in advance and gives a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
I started this as an experiment for boosting my productivity, but now I swear by it.
