You now have a plan (your strategic calendar) of how you would like to use your time. Refer to it frequently, and occasionally show both the normal and strategic calendars by clicking all the calendars so you can see how your appointments match your plan.

Make sure that you have Smart Lists in Remember the Milk to match every area of your life that you’ve scheduled into the strategic calendar. When the block of time on your strategic calendar changes, change the Smart List you are looking at. For example, when work starts, change to the Work Smart List. When your family time comes around, change to the Family list.
