I am a planner, a list maker, an organiser and I know I am not the only one, right? I know you lot are actually nodding right now.
I am self employed running a business and a family. That can sometimes be a recipe for disaster. You think work projects combined with school and after school activities, renewal of fees, things to bring and others to buy and if you don’t plan properly here comes the high blood pressure.
This morning I decided to design a weekly planner that fits my lifestyle and that allows me to instantly get a real picture of the Home and Work aspect and how they fit with one another. And then I thought I would share it with you because if I need it then some of you might need it too.
Here is the thought behind it:
Each week you print it ideally before the week starts, Friday could be a good day.
On it you add all the meetings, appointments and deadlines that you have that week for both your Home/Personal and Work environment. Next to it you will find a place to list your top ongoing projects, then move on further and you write down the 3 top priority goals you have to achieve this week, followed by a To Do list of general things that pop into your mind as you go along.
Does it make sense? What I like about it is that it forces you to look ahead of what’s coming and make sure you are prepared.

I hope you like it and please let me know if there is anything you would like to add or change.
