Every minute you spend in planning saves 10 minutes in execution; this gives
you a 1,000 percent Return on Energy!
By taking just 5-10 minutes each day (in the morning or night before) to plan out your day, you’ll be able to get significantly more out of your day. In this post, I will show you how I plan my week and then my working day and what I use.
What I Use For Planning
For a long time I use paper planner – this is my current one. I love it! But… lately, I have a problem to track everything in my planner. First, because there is too much task to write them down and secondly there are no reminders. When I have this problem and still want to write my task down on paper I print out printable to-do list.
To track all my project I use Asana. I can simply rearrange tasks, set Due Date… Before Asana I have used Meistertask – also a great app.
How I Plan My Week
Before the week started I like to plan it.
In Asana I have some weekly task that appears in my Asana to-do list every Monday, so I don’t have to add them every week. I check my calendar for some events, meetings… and also add them to Asana. For every task, I set Due Date and arrange them by projects.
I also check what I plan to publish on my Blog and lately I also try to plan content for social media.
That’s all for week plan.
How I Plan My Day
I love when I take time the night before and prepare everything for next day. But lately, I rather take some time in the morning and plan my day.
I start my working day (after yoga, meditation, breakfast and with coffee in one hand…) with e-mails. First I reply to all that can be done immediately and for emails, I need more time I send to my to-do list in Asana. Then I check my Due Date tasks in Asana and rearrange them – the most important 3 are the first one.
With planning my day I feel more organized and feel great because everything I have to do is in my Asana and I don’t have to worried about tasks I shouldn’t forget.
And that’s everything! Tell me – how you plan working day and week? 🙂
