There’s nothing better than the feeling of having a clear, worry-free mind.
Mental clutter is heavy!
For me, a big contributor to not having a lot on my mind is getting things down in one place.
That means writing down my monthly goals and then, the secret to my success, using my weekly planning system.
It’s the best thing – it feels like there’s more time because there is – a whole week to get things done.
If I feel like I want to do nothing on 2 – 3 days, that’s fine, I have 4 – 5 more
Some things that work for me:
- I use a form of Eat the Frog with my weekly planning too. I put my “heaviest”, most important tasks at the beginning of the week which is why, if any of my friends are reading, I almost never agree to do anything fun on a Monday or Tuesday. Those days are for “heavy lifting”.
- I plan things throughout the week so that each day feels light and I never feel burdened or overwhelmed.
- I always plan fun things too, like playing with photos.
- I don’t make a huge list – I try not to have more than 10 things total, for both business and personal. That’s a comfortable number for me most weeks.
Do you do any weekly planning?
Tell me about your system, otherwise do try some weekly planning next week and let me know how you like it. It might not work for you and that is A-okay – I’m not a one size fits all coach
