Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan

I’ve heard successful people say they live by their calendar. If it’s not there, it’s not done.

This is the perfect time to get a plan down, develop systems, implement rules and set boundaries. A plan that allows you to take stock on past actions and get clear about what you want moving forward.

I recently read an article of business owner, Denise Duffield Thomas who outsourced all of her housework so she could better enjoy her family and focus on her business. Many people try to do it all instead of surrendering and letting go so tasks can be delegated for increased productivity and personal satisfaction. I applaud her for acknowledging her weaknesses and asking for help managing the tasks surrounding them.

Now is the time to decide what your goals are so you can create the routines, schedules, and process of getting there joyfully.

Let’s talk about what’s on your schedule based on your goals for the year:

  • Exercise
  • Meditation
  • Date Night
  • Nights out with friends
  • Business meetings
  • Birthdays
  • Appointments
  • Vacation/Trips/Retreats
  • Events/Conferences
  • Deadlines
  • Other

Do you take time out to plan your week? When do you do it? On Sundays or Mondays? Or do you plan each day as it comes?

How far out do you plan?

I like quarterly planning because it gives me a timeframe to focus on hitting certain milestones.
