Review your goals before you look at your calendar. Spend some time mentally reflecting or reflecting in your journaling. This will help you be more conscious about your daily decisions.
Schedule your wellness activities before you schedule anything else. If you want to be fully functional and optimizing your daily hours – your wellness should be your top priority. Many have said it before – put your oxygen mask on first.
Tidy up last week’s tasks. Be sure to schedule ongoing projects, capture “almost done” tasks, and review your notes from the previous week. This will prevent the nagging feeling of “Am I forgetting something?” from zapping your energy.
Get your team lined up to help you maximize your productivity. It is absolutely smart, bold, and appropriate to have people and tools to help you tackle your weekly task list. Once you are clear on your goals and wellness, start delegating. Your clarity will help you be specific with your help requests.
