I’m so excited to let you in on the biggest game-changer for busy mompreneurs! Weekly planning is hands down, the best system to schedule out your time and make sure your work and home life are in balance and productive.
If you’ve never heard of batching out your time, I’m about to change the way you view your days and get your schedule on track to become more productive and less stressed at the same time.
Bottom line: Weekly planning really is the best scheduling system to creating more space and time in your life.
How do you plan your week and batch your time? By grouping together all of your tasks by days. Yes! It really is that simple to take control of your time. And I’ll teach you my system below!
Learning to delegate and automate
Someone I love that teaches busy mompreneurs so much about planning for success is my friend Tonya, owner of Inkwell Press. I can’t tell you enough about how helpful her planners are for keeping me productive and organized!
Not only does she have the best planners, but she teaches all of us how to be more productive with our time.
I am such a huge believer in her methods of optimizing productivity that I even interviewed her for my youtube page! It was such an informative 10-minute conversation that I’m linking it below for those that may have missed it!
There are a few pointers to keep in mind for building a successful weekly planning system. I’ll go over the main points below, but be sure to watch the entire interview to get all of the best details!
- Automate and batch your tasks by days
- Sundays are for planning, Wednesdays are for family meetings, etc.
- Answer all emails in 1 hour of the day. Having them pop-up on your screen all day long is a huge distraction.
- Mark out a time of the week to handle all marketing (Monday mornings, for example)
- Ensure that your business and house work are cohesive
- Keep housework tasks light on busier work days and vice-versa
- Tidy up your office
- Being organized keeps your work time more productive
Don’t forget to watch the original video (it’s only about 12 minutes long and full of game changing advice)!
What to read
One of my favorite books is 168 hours by Laura Vanderkam. The entire book is based on the fact that a week consists of 168 hours and understanding how to block out your time for optimal productivity.
Whether you listen to the audiobook or sit with a cup of tea and the paperback in your hands, it’s a “must read.” I’ve added a link below in case you want to check it out.
