How do I have the best week ever?
I know it is hard to find the time, I am a mother of two and I am preparing for this presentation, which I made with lots of distractions for children so that I can understand them. But there is a mental obligation to take control of your calendar instead of letting your calendar govern what you need to do.
This is a picture of my first online course workbook, The Get Unstuck Bootcamp. In one of those 15 minutes before work, I emailed my small list with a link to purchase this course that I had not yet created. Someone bought it from the UK and I received the PayPal order when I was in my cabin doing my day job. AHHH I have to create this course now! So I did it in the morning and held the class at night and 4 people attended my first course and I’ve been doing it since then!
That made me believe that Everyone can open their dream business.
Here’s a big secret I’ve learned.
The Pareto principleHave you heard about it?
It is said that 20% of your input produces 80% of your results. Concentrate on the 20% that will give you the results you want. This means that you really need to focus on what works when you start your dream career or dream business. You need to focus on the 20% that make the difference to save time and get faster results. 80% of what you’re doing could be a waste of time.
Here are some examples….
- 80% of job leads are found through networking.
- The top 20% of your resume is the most important section.
- The first 1-2 minutes of your interviews are the most important.
- If you are an entrepreneur and find out which 20% of your time achieves 80% of business results, you can spend more time on these activities and less time on others.
- Identify the characteristics of the top 20% of your customers (who make up 80% of your sales). Then you can find more customers like this and increase your sales and profits.
Goal: Schedule a weekly review session on your calendar.
Now you can get my weekly to-do list in my free 90 day planner.
So this is a habit. It won’t be easy at first. You need to add a reminder to your calendar. But once you do this, you become addicted. Organizing is addictive. You take control of your to-do list and schedule, rather than being controlled by it. You make yourself and your goals a priority. Because you are important and worth it !!
It may take 20 to 30 minutes to start, but now I can do it in 5 to 10 minutes every week. It’s a system and I’ve got it down.
It is getting easier. However, the goal is to create this weekly schedule every week and set a regular time on your calendar where you can create and review your schedule. So your Monday won’t start until you have this plan.
Well. In this lesson you will Learn how to set up your weekly review session. I do that every week, every Friday. It’s the first thing on my calendar in the morning. I do a few different things that I will guide you through, which I highly recommend.
This will help you focus on Monday’s things to do this week by doing this review session before the week starts. So I recommend Friday. I did it on Sundays. You are welcome to do it on Sundays, but I love it on Fridays so my Sunday is not so stressed out.
How to create a weekly review session
The first thing I do is make a long list of all the things that have to be done before Monday. I’m making a list of everything I haven’t done this week.
All the administrative things that are still on my plate that I haven’t done this week, and I’m making a big long list of everything I have to do by Monday. I’m also making a list of everything that can wait until next week. It’s really not that important that I don’t want to do it on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. And I’m also making a list for next week.
Then on Friday I try to turn off as many administrative elements as possible while prioritizing the next week’s list. So I take the list for next week and take out my three most important tasks that I have to do for next week. And these are my top three priorities. So when things show up on Monday morning, I wake up and know exactly what my priorities are. What was not done then must be done on the list on Friday. I will have more administrative things to do next week.
But My focus is always on my priorities. I really want you to get used to writing down your three priorities every week. Review your previous week, review what hasn’t been done, write it down, write down what needs to be done in the future, and then prioritize it each week. Your top three priorities.
By completing a weekly review session, you can determine exactly what to do when you wake up on Monday. Get in the habit of doing this session at the same time and on the same day each week.
- Make a long list of all the tasks that need to be done for the week.
- Eliminate as many administrative elements as you can.
- Make another list of tasks that can wait until next week.
- Prioritize the top three tasks for the next week.
Anna’s weekly review sessions are usually on Friday, but you can also have weekly sessions on Saturday or Sunday.
Your focus should always be on your priorities every week. Get in the habit each week of writing down your top three priorities for each week. Now you know what to focus on! If you know what to focus on, you will be much more successful in achieving your big goals and visions.
Get in the habit of holding a weekly review session. For this session, block 15 to 30 minutes on your calendar on the same day each week. You will be able to do this faster the more you get used to it, but it may take longer in the beginning.
Weekly Review Session Questions:
- What are the urgent tasks that you still have to do this week?
- What tasks can wait until next week?
- What are my top three priorities next week?
All in all
I highly recommend running a weekly review process where you review your previous tasks and goals, see what you haven’t done, write it down, and then plan what you will do next week. However, focus on the top three priorities. So write down all of these things you could do next week. What is the most important, how what brings you to this 90-day goal, this one-year goal, this five-year goal? These are the things that matter most so that we can set our priorities. All right, let me know if you have the weekly planning session in the Facebook group. I would like to know how to do it.
In a future episode I will be planning your weekly calendar. But that’s the next step. I pull out my google calendar. I’m planning my workouts. I plan my children’s activities. I plan the blocks of time in which I will work on my top priorities.
