Tips for Setting a Schedule for a Productive Week

Getting to sit down at home at the tail end of a long week and know that you have done everything that you can to be as productive as possible makes you feel really, really good. You feel more relaxed and your conscience is less heavy because you can rest in the fact that you were super productive. It sounds like a fantastic situation, but it does take some leg work for anyone to reach this point. Being productive, no matter what your life looks like, can help you feel more ready to rest and feel more encouraged to start again right back at it when your next week starts.

If It Isn't Scheduled in Time, It Isn't Happening

Never-ending To Do List

Too often, I think, we approach quite a lot of what we have to do with the thought “I’ll fit that in somewhere.”

How often does that really work? More often than not, I assert, it doesn’t work at all!

We don’t get things done, and then we wonder why?

Everything we have to do takes time to be done.

How Do I Schedule / Focus My Time?

Here’s a great question I’ve gotten a bunch recently — it gets phrased different ways, like…

“What would a daily schedule look like for me as an independent artist?”- K.

“How to complete things and avoid being overwhelmed?” – J.

“Should you focus on one goal or several?” – Daddio

“Help! How to plan so I’m not just responding to the urgent?!” – C.

“Guidance on sticking with one project while so many new ideas call for action”- K.
