Hi, I'm Debbye Cannon the Business Mom Mentor and I understand that you are looking for some more time. Well, creating a weekly rhythm plan can help you get what I call life rhythm. Periodically, I use this tool to design my ideal week as a target to shoot for. With this tool you can map out what activities will fit together better best. Think of it like putting together the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. My kids actually use this very form to plan out their college courses.
Now I'm not even going to pretend that there won’t be changes, but deciding on what is the most efficient use of your time will help you to get more done. By color coding the plan, you can adjust the amounts of time allocated to various activities to prevent being lap-sided in your priorities.
This is an example of what I call a weekly rhythm plan. I use blue for the spiritual time – think of the heavens. It might be time for yoga, meditation, reading your scriptures anything that is spiritually uplifting for you. I use yellow for time with my family because they're the sunshine of my life. This helps me to get quality and quantity time with my family members. For business I use two colors. Green for income producing time; these are the activities and the time I’ve allocated for the activities that will actually bring money into my bank account. And then I separate the pink time for my business preparation time. This is the administrative stuff that has to be done but isn’t directly contributing income. I reserved orange for my personal time. This makes sure that I remember to take out some time for myself. And purple is time with my sweetheart that way we remember to take time to nurture our relationship.
How does your weekly plan look -- too much work time, not enough family time or vice-versa, no time for yourself? Spending too much time working and preparing and not enough time producing income? Well if you want to save some time just put your email address below and I’ll send you a weekly rhythm plan blank in PDF form for the print and write it out and the Excel blank form for you online techy-types. Either way it’s a smart cut to getting more of what’s important fit in to your life.
