  1. 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

What does and doesn’t get blocked and how far in advance to plan blocked tasks can all be modified to fit your life and schedule. The important thing is, this is a great system to use for organizing your to-do list.

3. ROUTINES

Once you’ve gotten your tasks blocked of into specific times for tackling, you have to decide in what order you will complete said tasks. What steps will you follow to get this done? Here is where your routine comes in. Your routine is a group of specific steps you follow daily, weekly or monthly to complete certain tasks. Decide what would be the most logical way for you to go about completing the goals you’ve set for each block of time and work your steps from there.
