Why Sundays are the Secret to a Successful Week!

August 18, 2019

 

Rest, relax, recharge… and reflect. That’s what Sundays are all about.

Leaving behind the negative self talk, the things that are holding you back, and looking forward to a new week, a new opportunity to go for what you want.

Anxiety creeps in when things start piling up – so having a set plan for myself keeps my head (and desk, maybe even my inbox) clear and functioning at its best.

“Plan your work, work your plan.” This is the daily mantra I started telling myself when I worked in sales for 15 years. It helped me remember to focus on the tasks for the day and week.

I use Sundays as a time to sit down and make my plan for the upcoming week .

Here are my three easy tips to stay organized:

1. Find the right tool: get a planner that is user-friendly for you. I use the combination of a paper calendar for long term goals and google calendar for daily tasks and appointments.

I love my personalized planner from Erin Condren to make my daily to-do lists. It allows me to avoid the mental drain of trying to keep track of all the things I need to remember for the day.

If you write it down nothing slips through the cracks.

2. Prioritize! I list my tasks in order of importance for the day, week and even the year.

3. While working on your daily list, set a timer for each task, and check things off your list as you go throughout your day! This gives you a feeling of accomplishment and keeps you on track.

I have found this especially helpful for managing social media. I can hop on Instagram and the next thing I know – an entire hour has gone by!

I have a specific time each day that I engage with my platforms, and I give myself a time limit. This keeps me focused!

Happy planning!
