This ONE Practice Changed my Week

Week 29

Do you find that you never have enough time to finish your to-do list?

For the last few weeks, I have been sharing my approach to getting things done, so I don’t feel overwhelmed with responsibilities, and I am not firefighting.  

I have broken down how I start with a yearly vision and my review process.  

I wanted to offer you some additional insight into how I prioritize and focus weekly.   

Setting time aside to reflect, plan then schedule (you can see a visual of how I have shifted my approach to work here) has been a game-changer for me. 

Weekly I pour out all my tasks and responsibilities onto a piece of paper to get it out of my head.

Then, I select the tasks I want to complete (or delegate) in the upcoming week and schedule it into my calendar.


  • To-do lists by themselves don’t work for me.
  • Waiting until the last minute to make my schedule doesn’t get me very far.
  • I get more done when I spend a few minutes, reflecting on what I want to accomplish once a week.
