My #1 Tip For Weekly Productivity
Last year I made a weekly productivity pad to help me stay on track with my goals and never ending to-do list.
I tweaked it throughout the year and built it around what worked best for me, but also what I thought momtrepreneurs were needing in their business.
Enter the Business Owners Weekly Productivity Pad!
I partnered with With A Twist Boutique to have it printed in a pad and it turned out so good. We’ve already sold through a couple of runs and they just got another printing in.
You need this in your life. Besides the fact that it’s just cute and so fun to look at. Hello rainbow happiness!
It’s the one planner-type thing that I’ve been able to use consistently and see results from.
Ok, let’s go through the sections:
After you write the date take a minute to jot down how you want to make people feel this week.
I find this really important to do first and set the tone for what kind of value I’m going to provide.
Some things I’ve written down are:
- “I want to make women feel capable.”
- “I am going to make other moms feel worthy.”
Next you will choose the three most important things that you need to do this week.
Three might not seem like a lot, but trust me on this. If you try and do more you’re going to get overwhelmed.
This section is all about your must-do action plan.
You can see that it nests under your three must-do list items.
Underneath each one you will write all the actions you need to do in order to get that big important to-do finished.
As you go through the week you can fill in the bubble to show you’ve completed a task.
For example if you one of your to-do list items is: “launch website” you would write down tasks like “buy domain, create brand sheet, etc.”
You might be tempted to skip this, but don’t.
Write down your affirming statement and look at it often. Say it out loud. Let it guide you through the week.
- “I am a capable, smart, and kind person.”
- “I have the ability to handle whatever comes my way.”
- “I am energetic and enthusiastic. Confidence is in my nature.”
In this section there are 5 spots to write down your current gratitude list.
Do it all at once or write them throughout the week. It’s up to you.
I have found so much improvement in acknowledging and writing down my gratitudes regularly.
This is a must-do!
Pick a quote that will help guide you this week and write it down.
Here are a few that I love:
- “The most effective way to do it, is to do it.”
- “Are you trying to help, or are you trying to sell?”
- “A failure is an event, never a person.”
The weekly norm tracker section is where you keep track of all the normal things you need to do.
Think of these as smaller goals. Habits you are working on that will make your week great, but don’t necessarily fit in the big section above.
Write them down along with the benefit you’ll have from doing them all week.
Fill in the bubbles as you go along to keep yourself accountable.
Some stuff I’ve had on mine recently:
- Get in bed before 11pm. Benefit: Easier to wake up.
- Post on social media 2x. Benefit: Consistency.
Set a goal for how many notes and thoughtful gifts you want to send out to your customers this week.
Use the bubbles to track how many you’ve gotten done.
At the end of the week you will fill out this section.
Make some notes about next week – things you need to do, what you want to improve, etc.
Write down a failure you had as well as the lesson you learned from it.
