About Our Guest
Trevor and I met through podcast networking activities, primarily the recent PodmaxGlobal Virtual Conference. Trevor calls himself a serial entrepreneur, having started at least four companies over his career. His current business is Day Optimizer, designed to help people become more deliberate in how they plan their day. The purpose of Day Optimizer functions by showing people how to balance their time and their personal and professional priorities.

What Our Guest Talked About
Trevor discussed the planning process used by Day Optimizer, that uses a three-step process when reviewing your daily or weekly tasks and actives: 1) Commit. 2) Allocate. 3) Schedule. The Day Optimizer web and the mobile app encourage the user to create “mindfulness checkpoints” to check in and ask: Is this the most important thing to do at this time? Yes: keep doing it. No: Push it aside for something else.
For creatives, Trevor recommends that we schedule our “live” tasks in hard time blocks, and then schedule and “optional block,” and then another hard block. Do not schedule a hard block right after the creative tasks, and try not to schedule creative tasks right before a set appointment.

Words of Wisdom
Trevor feels that everyone should have a chance to see how Day Optimizer can change the way people, and especially creative professionals, schedule their days and manage their time and their tasks. He is offering a free 7-day trial of the app at Day Optimizer.com.
