Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you had a great weekend! Today I wanted to share with you how I organize my life for the week ahead. These are things I do at the beginning of every week to ensure that my week runs as smoothly as possible. Of course, I can’t be prepared for everything, but this helps me be prepared for what is in my control. So this is how I organize my life for the week ahead.
List all the tasks I need to accomplish for the week.
I always start by writing out all of the things I need to accomplish in the week. From things I do daily to weekly, I write out as much as I can to make sure I don’t miss anything. This helps me figure out how to prioritize and plan everything.
Schedule everything in my planner and calendar.
Once I have my list and I have it prioritized, I work on putting it in my planner and calendar. Using my Google Calendar helps me give everything a time frame and helps me see how much time I really have available. It allows me to have a visual of the structure of my week so I don’t overdo anything.
Cut out things that don’t fit.
Once I have things scheduled in my planner and calendar I can see what I have left. Whatever is left is all the things that I couldn’t fit into my schedule. So I know I either need to not worry about them at all or keep them on hand to add to next week’s list if possible so I am not overwhelming myself.
Check calendar every morning.
I check my calendar every morning because it helps me know what needs to get done and what my day is going to look like. This just helps me have an understanding and be prepared for anything that I know I have going on that day.
Review and update as needed.
Of course, as with anything, things don’t always go as planned. So I try to review and update my schedule when I need to because I know that sometimes things changed. If something comes up, something takes longer than planned, or I need to make any other changes, I know that I am able to do that.
