  1. Create your plot

    Using a program such as Excel or pen-and-paper, create a grid that has the number of boxes and the amount of room you need. Keep in mind that you need to put categories along the row at the top and/or along the leftmost column. Alternatively, you can buy a pre-made schedule grid such as a calendar or daily planner.

  2. Label your categories

    Whether your schedule is by minute, hour, day or any other measure, label your categories sequentially from left to right or from top to bottom. Some schedules have days of the week listed from left to right and have hours increasing from top to bottom.

  3. Fill in your schedule

    Now that your schedule is set up, fill it in with anything you want. If you have an appointment at a particular day and time, write information about that appointment in the box that matches the day and time. You also can color-code items if you want to organize further.
