Reviewing Your Schedule Will Make You a Star

Do you review your schedule each week?

Doing a weekly review of your schedule is a great habit to learn, but few people do it each and every week. But by preparing yourself for the upcoming week before it begins makes you a star! I practice what-I-preach here. Every weekend (usually Sunday) I spend just a few minutes looking over my calendar and my to-do list. I map out each day, so I know what I have to do and want to do. There’s a big difference. These few minutes helps me feel prepared to begin the week confident that I can do it!

Take 10 minutes to look at your calendar before the Monday-Morning-Madness to prioritize your tasks and plan your strategy. That way you won’t always feel like you are reacting to what’s going on around you and you’ll feel more like a master of your domain. Won’t that be great!

  • Do a little brain dump to get some to-dos off your mind and on your schedule for this week.
  • Set some short-term goals for the week, to move your projects along.
  • Note meetings and appointments for the week and get everything ready now.
  • Review last week’s calendar and goals. How did it go? Did you accomplish a majority of your short-term goals? If anything still needs attention add it to this weeks schedule.

A few minutes is a great investment in giving you a head start on your week and will make you look like a star!
