The working moms guide to better plans and better days
It’s important to plan your work week. Planning is a helpful practice that leads to increased productivity, better time management, and reduces stress. I believe planning is one of the primary reasons that I can juggle competing priorities and control the chaos. In today’s post, I am going to share some of my work week planning tips.
These tips are for working mothers who are looking to move beyond surviving in motherhood to thriving. Another word that I like to associate with thriving is flourishing. By definition “thriving” is to be successful or make steady progress
To me thriving in motherhood includes making progress towards goals, living a balanced life, and enjoying the journey!
Work Week Planning Tips
When I coach moms, I always encourage them to plan their weeks. I get that planning is not everyone’s cup of tea but I highly encourage it. My motto is “Career Moms are purpose-driven women who rely on intentional planning, strategy, and grace.”
Work Week Planning Tip #1
Account for everything in your calendar. I’ve found it super helpful to plan holistically. Before the week kicks off I account for work commitments, kids’ activities, time blocks to work on my business, and everything else.
Work Week Planning Tip #2
Find a planning technique that is going to work for you and create accountability.
Work Week Planning Tip #3
Assign deadlines to your task. For me, it is motivating to be able to physically check off a to-do. It not only gives me a sense of accomplishment but it also gives me the motivation to keep pushing towards other goals.
Work Week Planning Tip #4
Don’t over commit. If you feel yourself getting overwhelmed while you are planning your week, that is a red flag.
Work Week Planning Tip #5
Purposeful prioritization is key. Number tasks in order of importance to help maintain your focus throughout the week.
