Planning your work week in advance is one of the smartest things you can do to keep your business running smoothly . I don’t know about you, but things are pretty hectic these days. Between managing a business and a family with young children, planning out my work week helps keep me focused and on track with my goals for the week.
I’m sharing some of the planning tips I’ve learned over the years as a business owner. So grab a big cup of coffee and let’s dive in!
Pick a day and time that works best for you to plan your work week. Commit to blocking out that time every single week. Maybe it’s Monday morning, or Sunday night, but keeping it the same day and time helps create patterns which helps you follow through on your weekly planning.
Don’t commit to too many tasks that you know you won’t really have the time for. Instead aim for one or two big tasks that you want to complete for the day and if you have time to take on more, then great!
This method has worked really well for me. I could work for hours and hours on just one task, but if I set a limit for myself, I can get more done in less time. Set a timer in Google and work on a single task for 30 minutes. Keep going through all of your tasks for 30 minutes at a time and then circle back to anything that’s unfinished.
For years I’ve been using ordinary to-do lists which I would write out every morning for the day ahead. After feeling like I didn’t know what the rest of my work week was looking like, I decided to create my own Weekly Planner so I could plan my entire week on one page!
