So it's Sunday and I am getting ready for the week. About a year ago I learned an easy habit to perform which set's up my week for high levels of productivity.
I simply spend 15 minutes looking at my calendar for the next week. My goal is to really analyze how I will spend my week. I examine my meetings, projects, and time management. The main objective is to ask one question, "is my week getting me closer to my monthly, quarterly, and yearly goals?"
If the answer is yes, then I am managing my time properly. If the answer is no, then I need to re-align my schedule.
This Sunday routine only takes a few minutes, yet it saves me hours by ensuring I am only doing the things which match my goals. Try it out a for a couple of weeks and I am sure you will see great results.
