While most productivity people out there recommend Sundays or Monday mornings…
I’m a huge believer in planning on Fridays.
There’s just something so awesome about walking into your weekend knowing you’re on top of everything on your plate, nothing fell through the cracks, and that you have a realistic game plan to get it all done.
That knowledge allows you to enjoy your weekend, instead of having work loom over you all weekend long, causing anxiety because you’re not quite sure what’s around the corner or how you’ll get it all done.
Instead, Friday planning gives you clarity and confidence. All. Weekend. Long.
If you’re thinking, “okay, but what exactly do I do during these planning sessions?,” check out the article I wrote for Fast Company.
Happy planning, people! Remember, you’re not going to ever go in it really looking forward to it – but the high on the other side is so so worth it. And then strut into and really enjoy your weekend!
