Monday Check-in: 5 easy steps for slowing down and remaining productive

Monday Check-in: 5 easy steps for slowing down and remaining productive

Happy Monday, Bold-Thinkers!

How did your day go?

I had a slow start to my Monday.

I worked with a fabulous client and took care of some paperwork...and that's about it.

(Oh, and grocery shopping + laundry.)

Getting back into the groove after a vacation is always a large energetic output for me.

In knowing this, I have to be gentle with myself.

Here are 3 things to consider as you go easy on yourself - while getting a productive start to the week.

1. declutter your thinking

2. adjust the expectations you’ve put on yourself

3. curate your “to do” list

Here’s how you can get started.

Step 1

Grab a sheet a paper (or electronic document) and put it into landscape/horizontal layout.

Step 2

Create 3 columns

Step 3

Label each column with these headings

(a) Urgent/Priority – must be done today

(b) This week/month

(c) Outsource/Delegate

Step 4

Put your tasks into the appropriate columns

Step 5

Repeat this process tomorrow.

How do you plan to boost your productivity for this week?

What systems or process do you use to keep overwhelm low – as you start the week?

How do you regroup if overwhelm takes over?
