What is an or-asc and how can it help me schedule my day/week better
An or-asc is a word that adheres to the word “or”; it’s also called an “or-and”. Its meaning can be summed up as following: “Choose one from the following list of options, or two from these three.”.
An or-asc can be a subtle, but very effective way of presenting an idea to someone. It can serve as a gentle reminder that people have choices, and that often many options are available for the taking. An or-asc also functions as a way of educating others about the nuances of decision making, and encouraging them to think more deeply about their personal preferences.
For example, if you’d like to have coffee with a friend, you can say: “Would you like to have coffee today, or would prefer that we wait until next Tuesday?” This approach allows your friend to maintain a sense of control; she may choose only one option if she’s too busy today but will not be forced into choosing two.
How do I create an or-asc and what are the benefits
You can create an or-asc by putting “or” and “and” in different places. So, for example: “meet at 1pm or “meet at 3pm and “meet at 11am and”.
Some benefits of an or-asc, when compared to a regular schedule, are that you don’t need to plan every day of your week up front. You only need to be able to plan the days you know ahead of time (for example, Mondays and Wednesdays). The other days can be made in one (or two) minute decisions.
Tips for using your or-asc to get the most out of it
Use your or-asc to create “your own daily schedule” by filling it with things that you are looking forward to doing, as well as items that you should always do (to keep in good shape and/or for your health/wellbeing). Once you’ve created a full schedule, you can use the or-asc regularly to issue “Schedule and” reminders for these things for the future. As well as, when you are faced with a choice of two different things to do, use your or-asc to decide on the most important one (or ones).
Schedule and reminders
In addition to the regular use of “Schedule and” for future reminders (for example, Schedule and next week! Receive post!) you can use your or-asc for immediate reminders by using “Schedule and now”: for example, Schedule and now to pick up something from the supermarket that’s running low/out of stock. Or, Schedule and now to have a quicker/more convenient shower.
You can also use the or-asc in combination with networking. For example, you could use Schedule and now to touch base with someone that’s important to you. Or, Schedule and now to call back/update someone you’ve been meaning to get in contact with. You could also use it for short-notice social activities: for example, Schedule and now to have a drink with a friend. You can also use scheduling to create reminders of things that you’re going to say in real time – for example, Schedule and now to mention this/that when you see them next time.
