Here’s the top 3 things you can do on a weekly basis to organize your life and meet your weekly goals. Efficiency, structure, having more time and breaking those bad habits of procrastination can all be attainable through repetition when you’ve got a plan in place for getting things done.
WEEKLY PLANNING/GOAL SETTING
What I like to do is list specific goals I want to accomplish for the week. Next, write down what tasks need to be tackled in order of most important to “it could wait”. You always want to put high priority items at the top of your list.
I’ve created a weekly planner for myself to stay organized with this week to week. I like using this single page document in lieu of my big planner from week to week just for ease and simplicity. I can also put week specific details for that week on the page that I may not want to “clutter” my planner with. Once I’m done with it I can toss it or keep in to refer back to. I’ve found it to be quite useful so I definitely wanted to share with you guys.
2. TIME BLOCKING
I cannot stress how this has helped me stay organized and complete the tasks I want to complete without getting distracted. In essence, time blocking is just scheduling your to-do list against your calendar.
The most important and helpful components of time blocking are:
Set amount of time to complete a task
Work on ONLY one task for that block of time
