I’ve found recently that when I don’t plan the week ahead, I forget about appointments, time gets away from me and things can get messy.
Whilst, most of my work can be done online I have a number of different techniques to help me stay on track. If you’re looking to increase productivity and stay on top of things during the week try my top 5 tips on how to plan your week like an entrepreneurial boss babe.
I like to think of Sunday’s as a relaxing start to a successful week. On Sunday’s I like to grab a coffee, my laptop and notebook and just get everything out of my head and out in front of me. Relying on your brain to remember important dates or your to-do list is just going to lead to a stressful week.
Monday’s are for starting to implement your planning and eating the frog at the start of your day.
This means getting the hardest tasks out of the way first! I know it’s hard because by nature we like to put off things that may seem intimidating. However, getting these tasks out of the way earlier in the week means you won’t be dreading them all week.
Set aside time to meal prep nutritious foods and schedule in some exercise for the week. If you’re sitting at a desk, get up and move around every hour and don’t have to deprive yourself because your brain needs fuel to function, enjoy everything in proportion.
Happy hump day! You’re halfway through the week and chances are things are either under control or very hectic. Take some time to slow down and reflect on what has worked for you this week so far and what changes you can make to continue being a boss babe.
You have a couple of days before the weekend and if you haven’t already started time blocking, it’s time to start. If you have similar tasks eg, writing a blog post or filming a video, time block those tasks and smash them out together.
Set a time on your phone, turn on flight mode, put some headphones in and smash out those tasks boss babe!
You’ve made it to the end of the working week so it’s time to wrap up. You’ve done your best work earlier in the week so just finish things off and write reminders for yourself for next week. That way you can step straight back into what you’re up to next week.
After work on a Friday, I’m still technically in work mode so I like to get tedious things out of the way. Things like grocery shopping and meal prepping to give you a great start to your next week and more you time over the weekend.
