My ideal week: free printable "planner"
Do you live your life as it comes (reactive approach) or do you prefer to live with purpose according to a plan (proactive approach)?
As the founder of WEEK PLAN, I try to expose my readership to new interesting techniques that can help them be more effective.
Today, I share a new tool called MY IDEAL WEEK:
The concept is very simple: imagine what your ideal week would look like if you had 100% control over your time.
I believe it is essential to color code your ideal week. It helps you find imbalance and attach you emotionally to this piece of paper. I personally use green for “Sharpen the saw” kind of activities, pink for relationships, blue for creative work, and grey for chores.
Some comments on my ideal week:
1. As you can see I still spend a lot of time consulting while I am bootstrapping WEEKPLAN. My true ideal week would replace consulting with Development work for WEEK PLAN.
2. I don’t plan much of my weekends. The weekends are the days I have the least control of.
3. I like to give each day a focus theme (admin, consulting, dev, etc…).
