Use your Google Calendar to better your time management and create more than just one: Just create a new calendar
Many people think you can have only one Google calendar per one Google account. Yeah, because when you first start out using Google Calendar, you’re given only one calendar to start with — it’s the one with your name under “My calendars.” So if you want to use your calendar for multiple things (ex: one project, another job, personal stuff and so on), you only have one place to do it. But when you’re only working with one calendar, all of those things will have the same priority and it is easy to lose control — meaning you can’t quickly and easily pull up the non-repetitive, important tasks you have for the day.
To combat this, just create a new calendar for each part of your life you’d like to keep track of on your Google Calendar.
