Don’t read this like a normal post. Treat this like a follow-along guide. Every Sunday, at 8pm (or earlier if I can), I sit down plot my week.
What You’ll Need
To get started:
A blank sheet of paper or a notebook.
A pen (preferably a pencil or something you can erase)
A calendar (doesn’t matter if it’s digital or physical)
Later on, I’ll share about how this planning connects to my digital workflow, but for now, I want you to focus on the first part. of planning, which is identifying what you’re going to use your time for. For me, this is the most important step in being productive.
Step 1: Prioritize
Designate or treat (something) as more important than other things.
Capture: I start with a blank sheet of paper and write the different things I need to accomplish without prejudice. Now is not the time to evaluate my to-dos. The important thing is to have them all in one place.
Evaluate. and Prioritize: From my long list, I choose the top 3-4 things I need to accomplish for the week. These. 3-4 things, along with my regular routines, form the week’s anchor events.
