Planning your week in advance can be a game changer. It can not only help you to stay focused throughout the week but ensure that your time is being used well (investing in the things that truly matter to you).
Here's how to do it:
#1: GET A PLANNER
First things first. Get a planner or find a way to organize your week, thoughts, and plans. If you like a digital planner, check out Trello or Evernote.
#2: CHOOSE A DAY TO PLAN
Pick a day to plan. This is a crucial step. If you don't take the time to sit down & plan what your week will look like, you'll find yourself going into another week without a plan. I love to plan my week on Sunday nights, but choose a day & time that works best for you!
#3: WRITE YOUR PRIORITIES FIRST
Write down any important priorities in your life first. This might include meetings, work hours, due dates, workouts, or scheduled events that are happening that week.
#4: FIND THE GAPS
Now that you've filled your calendar with your top priorities, identify any gaps in your days and week.
#5: FILL IN THE GAPS
Fill the gaps in with things that matter to you, that you love to do, or that you've been wanting to try -- like meeting a friend for coffee, reading a good book, trying a new workout class, walking your dog, cooking dinner, etc.
