Day Planning in Marvin

Marvin separates where you simply store and work off your tasks.
This separation creates so many benefits for you. You will never want to work any other way again.

Master list - Store and organize all tasks and projects in categories

My day - Work from a daily todo plan

Why day planning is a game changer

  • A todo plan helps to start the day off productively
  • Planning the night before ensures that you can use your freshest mental energy for working not planning
  • Separating planning and doing makes you work more efficiently by reducing context switching
  • Planning ahead automatically makes you prioritize important tasks
  • Working off a daily list vs your entire todo list reduces overwhelm
  • Having a daily plan helps to become more aware of procrastination which is the first step in preventing it
  • Having a plan for the next day makes you sleep like a baby
  • People have reported that having a daily todo plan was the single biggest productivity boost (some even doubled their productivity just by implementing this one step)
