If I utilised a Daily Success Plan for my Freedom Plan Business, my perfect day would be productive and efficient. Today’s Blog Challenge invites me to describe what I would do, when I would do it and how I would feel once I had completed my daily plan.
Natalie Sisson’s 3 guidelines are a great starting point.
- Our work space needs to be clear and uncluttered. Ideally, in our own home office area, with no distractions from well-meaning friends or family members who may not realise we are actually working!
- Then, we need to set the 3 most important actions for the day.
- We work most efficiently when we have a deadline, so the Pomodoro Method (working in 25 minute intervals) is a very effective method to keep on track and working to the assigned task – no distractions!
My home study is peaceful, and I aim to keep the tiny desk free of clutter. To do so, and to remain productive and efficient, I need to keep papers to a minimum. One of my daily success plan tasks is to pay bills as they come in, and file the paperwork immediately. I do admit to having piles of ‘things to do’ that I am working on…. Writing and filing notes from meetings I attend, keeping my Professional Development folder current etc.
I receive a fair amount of correspondence via email, concerning initiatives I am involved in. I don’t always answer each on the day I receive them as some require contemplation before response.
I am pondering how to advance my business, and have been consulting with coaches and participating in online courses / workshops – like this blogging challenge!
I can easily list 3 of my top current important actions for my daily success plan:
- Work on revising my website and eBook
- Write my blog
- Pay any due invoices, correspondence, filing
I would focus on the first one early in the morning, before my ‘other work’, and then complete the rest in the evening ‘after hours’. To hold myself accountable, I could tick off the activities in my diary, or I could go so far as to draw up a planner to keep track of the activities.
I already feel energised and enthusiastic, having used the Pomodoro timing segmsnts
to write this blog. This has been a most productive and efficient use of my Saturday morning,
How do you hold yourself accountable – I would love you to share!Share on Facebook
