How to Plan Your Week to be Productive
1. List down all the things you value in your life. Things that motivate and inspire you. Write down about the accomplishments you want to achieve in the next 10 years.
2. Take out some time on Sunday evening to create a schedule for the upcoming week. Think of all the things you need to do and are important to you. Set daily reminders on your cell phone or on your bathroom mirror.
3. Keep a calendar in hand and write down all the things that need to be done, chores, grocery, shopping, birthdays, anniversaries, repairs, time for yourself or spouse, time for your pet etc. Put little notes on your calendar to remind you of the important things to do.
4. Your routine should be fulfilling and satisfying. You should gain something from your week plan. If you have problems in a relationship, find some time to fix things back. We believe that personal care and relationships should be your top priority when planning your routines.
Add small things in life that will give you a positive outcome. For example, add morning walk, candlelight dinner, working out, date night with the spouse, going to park, meditate, go out for a drink with friends etc. These things might seem little but they add up value to your life a lot more than you imagine. Peace of mind matters most in life. Add up those things in your routine that not only nurture your body but also your soul.
Place your weekly schedule somewhere easily visible. Your laptop screen is the most viable option. Or you can print it and paste on your fridge.
5. Before sleeping, think of all the little achievements or tasks performed in a day. This will give you a feeling of fulfillment and will help you plan your week more productively.
6. Get your clothes and accessories done a night before. This will help you save a lot of time and you will look presentable where ever you go.
Whatever you are doing, try to deliver your best. When you are home, your family should feel your presence. When you are at work, you should be dedicated to your work. Instead of worrying about multiple things, try to focus on the task in hand to be more productive. Prioritize your life and get the best out of it, as you only live once.
