How to Plan Your Day Properly

How to Plan Your Day Properly

🤯 It wows me over and over again how many people don’t plan their week, month or even year ahead. How do you even live your life?

 

🤷 Yes, when I was a backpacker and hippie back in the day, I also didn’t care…🤹🏻‍♀️

 

🚗 Sometimes I drove around in my car at night, without a particular destination in mind, just for the sake of driving. I was bored and wanted to listen to some decent techno music, at least I had an amazing sound system installed. Happiness is when the bass drops, right? 🔊

 

Growing up and living in a village with 500 people…there wasn’t much to do… It was an amazing place growing up as a child, but as a teenager or adult, dead boring. You either go the traditional path like everyone else (get married early, house, kids etc.)…💍

 

But things have changed drastically and oh boy, where would be in life without having my vision & mission mapped out. 🧭

 

And to keep following my visions & missions I need to keep on track of it, every single year, month, week and yes, even every day.

 

It’s the beginning of the month AND the end of the week – If you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to get your s* together peeps. 🙌

 

✍️ Grab your planner and get started planning!

 

Here is how I plan my week, month and even year:

 

🧠 Yearly planning: I know exactly how many times I want to launch which product. I have a rough plan in which month I want to do so. I have a set financial goal. (All on Excel)

 

🧠 Monthly planning: I write down the bigger things for each month I need to accomplish in order to keep up with the yearly plan. What is it I need to achieve this month? Which content do I need to create, which campaigns do I need to run etc? What are my financial goals? (Noting down all the bigger things on Excel, and all the smaller tasks I need to do to achieve the bigger things on a Trello board)

 

🧠 Weekly planning: Now this is where it becomes interesting…

 

👉 Write down the 5 most important tasks of the week – Do these only after you have completed the above tasks

👉 Write down 5 tasks of secondary importance – Do these only after you have completed the above tasks

👉 Write down 5 additional tasks – Do these only after you have completed the above tasks

 

 

🧠 Daily planning:

👉 Choose the #1 priority task from the weekly plan, this is your most important task of the day – If this was the only thing you did today, you’d be satisfied.

👉 Secondary tasks of importance: completion of these tasks will make the day even better.

👉 Additional tasks: Do these only after you have completed the tasks above.

 

👩‍💻 Review every day and tick those task off the list (it will release dopamine in your brain and will encourage you to keep finishing things).

 

I look at my Trello board and put the listed tasks into this physical Productivity Planner for weekly & daily planning, it’s THE BIBLE amongst all the planners out there (👉 https://bit.ly/PPICWOHOO).

 

Writing down things physically with your hands goes deeper into your subconscious. DO IT.

👯 FUN THING TO DO AT THE END OF THE WEEK: A WEEKLY REVIEW

👉 Weekly wins – What’s going well? Any wins (big or little) this week?

👉 What tasks were not completed last week? Recommit to complete these tasks next week, unless they are not relevant anymore.

👉 What have you learned this week? How will you implement this in the future?

👉 Next week: What actions will you take to ensure your week is productive?

Things and plans obviously change along the way when evaluating results, market behaviour etc.

Things can and will change, sometimes even within days, and that’s ok.

It’s OK to adjust your plan. The key here is THAT THERE IS A PLAN.

🧠 The ONLY way how to reach your goals is if you tell your brain WHICH goals you want to achieve, by WHEN and THAT you want to achieve them.

🚶You must give it a blueprint. A plan to follow. And it will follow, kind of automatically. Our brains are actually pretty amazing things if we use them right.

❤️ Giving your brain a blueprint and a direction to go towards is VITAL to prevent to run in the wrong direction (some do it for years) and to guide yourself towards things in life YOU actually want (and not other people told you so).

The One Key Difference Between Successful People and Unsuccessful People

…is called (self-) limited thinking. 🤯

Once you get into the spiral of practising self-limited thinking, you already weakened (if not frozen) yourself at the start line.

🧠 You (or your brain) become(s) so fixated and distracted through all the excuses you are making up on why you can’t do something that you don’t even provide yourself with the opportunity to even TRY.

This limited thinking is the number one reason why you don’t achieve your goals and dreams.

Here are a few tips on how to finally get over (self-) limited thinking:

1. Identify the limiting step!

 

What is the one thing that dictates how long it will take to achieve your goal? 🎯

Answer this question and move on to creating a breakthrough plan.

Sounds huge but is very simple.

Make a plan for how to achieve your goal by removing this one limited thing. ✍️

Having the ability to identify your personal limiting step is a clear demonstration of your intelligence.

And your ability to remove this particular step showcases your overall capability in achieving ANYTHING YOU WANT in life.

 

2) Overcome your limiting belief through establishing strong self-confidence 👍

To be able to develop this you need to understand the law of focus and concentration (no, I am not talking about the law of attraction).

The law of concentrations suggests that anything you focus on grows into your reality.

Anything you think about for a long period of time, over and over again (and hard enough), eventually becomes one with your mental processes, so that it will reflect itself automatically in your actions and mindset. 🧠

If you constantly think about independence, bravery and assertiveness, you become gradually more independent, braver and more assertive. Easy, right?

If you want to be seen as self-confident from the outside world you first must practise it on the inside first. 💠

You are not what you think you are but what you think you are. Let that sink in. 🤓 Read this again.

You are not what you think you are but what you think you are.

Once you have established the unshakable self-confidence from within, it will allow you to play outside of your comfort zone, and as we know, that’s where the magic happens. 🌟

Now EVERYTHING is possible.

You are now ready to attack the next step.

 

3) Create a clear plan of actions that allow you to move forward and overcome the obstacles which will be thrown your way ⚔️

The secret here is to set attainable goals. Do not set goals which are too high to reach as that will leave you discouraged (at least at the beginning!).

You need to get past the first steps first before setting huge goals as they can seem too far out of reach and they may destroy your motivation.

So when setting goals, make sure they are achievable, realistic, clearly defined and most importantly measurable (so you can see progress!).

Because progress equals happiness.

You want to have ONE major goal (aka Northstar) in mind (or better on paper!) which you are constantly working towards. 🤩

Create a list of all the smaller things you need to do to achieve your #1 goal. Your Northstar. 🤩 🤩

If you don’t know your Northstar, do this:

 

4) Write down a list of 10 things you would love to accomplish in your life

Look at the list and choose the one which would have the biggest impact in your life, IF you would achieve this within the next day.

This goal becomes your purpose and your Northstar.

Now go and write a list of all the things you need to do achieve your #1 goal and PUT A DEADLINE ON IT.

I can not stress this enough. A goal without a deadline is just a dream.

 

5) Take action 🎬

None of the above is helpful if you don’t take action.

So let’s do it.

Commit to working towards your Northstar every single day, prioritise your list of things to do, try crossing off one thing at the time.

You will hit roadblocks and you will see yourself stopping and struggling.

But because you are smart, you will identify what is stopping you, and you will go back to 1) from this post and you will go through the process, identify what’s stopping you, develop unshakable self-confidence, make an action plan and go smash it.

This exercise will help you to set yourself free from limited thinking and achieve your personal and business goals.

Are you ready? 💪
