Today we are talking about something very practical and tactical.
Plan next week on Friday afternoon.
Every Friday I clear my inbox, then schedule the next week out. I have a printable template that I use to block my time as needed. This is where I see what next week’s priorities, time constraints, and plans are.
This will ensure that your priorities don’t get lost in your to-do’s.
I want to be clear…I never ever ever stick to my plan completely. But that 30 minutes I spend planning my time out allows me to see whether I really have time to get everything done next week or not. It allows me to see when I have conflicts of time, or priorities. There isn’t a more valuable 30 minutes in my entire week.
Only intentionality will move the ball forward.
If you want a copy of my simple planning template (I will even send you an example of what I do), comment here that you would like it.
