I encourage you to create your own personal ideal work week, keep it handy, and follow it most of the time.

Four Reasons to Create Your Ideal Work Week

  1. Let others know when they can bother you (or not).
  2. Personalize your schedule.
  3. You intentionally tie your goals to your activities together.
  4. It’s easier to get on track after interruptions.


Schedule steps when Creating Your Ideal Work Week

  1. Set the time to do weekly planning.
  2. Schedule the two often overlooked tasks:
    • Time for handling or planning financial strategy.
    • Allocating slack time.  Something will be delayed in a weekly schedule.
  3. Add your activitites directly related to goals and focused areas.
  4. Add tasks needed to run your company.
  5. Reserve time for outside meetings and events.
