Who Are You Working For?

A few months ago, I taught you how to use your calendar and throw away your to-do list. If you missed it, here’s a quick recap, in 5 easy steps:

  1. Brain dump your to-do’s on a piece of paper

  2. Prioritize each item into a list (be sure leave open space between each item)

  3. In the open space, breakdown each to-do into bite-sized tasks ( example below)

  4. Add those bite-sizes tasks to your calendar 

  5. Follow your calendar! 

Example: Create deck for July Executive Presentation 

  1. Set prep meeting for stakeholders

  2. Collect performance data 

  3. Build draft slides

  4. Schedule a check-in with stakeholders 

  5. Revise deck

  6. Send presentation out for final approval 

While this method is amazing, and one I continue to teach, I want you to re-evaluate your calendar. Are YOU on your calendar? Are you making your calendar work for you, or are you working for it?

When planning next week’s agenda, don’t forget to prioritize yourself. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Add a 10-20 minute buffer between meetings so you can polish your notes and have a few mins for a bio break 

  • Add a couple 10-minute breaks throughout for your day to get up and stretch

  • Calendar in self-care (e.g.  foot massage, reading, journaling, meditation, exercise)

  • Have you ever scheduled your sleep to see if you’re getting enough?

  • It takes time to feed yourself (and maybe others in your life). Be sure you’re capturing meals times

  • Sex (yes, scheduling sex is a thing)

You've got to create the life you want and one way to start is by tailoring your calendar so you are in control of how YOU spend YOUR time.

As always, I’m here to help and meet you where you are. Schedule a free 20-minute coaching session to examine your current mindset and decide how you want to show up in your life.
