I shared this post in a group for health coaches that I help mentor and have been sharing it like wildfire because I believe it's that important!
I know, I know... I am a broken record for saying... plan out your week, but in all seriousness it's important.
This morning over breakfast I sat down with my planner to look at September - December which is hands-down the busiest months for everyone!
Back to school, Thanksgiving, the Holiday season, and the countdown to the New Year. Not to mention football season is starting up again.
Take a chunk of time today to open up your planner, google calendar or whatever method it is that you use and start put dates on the calendar.
HOUSEHOLD DATES TO GET ON THE CALENDAR
+Sports / activity practices for your kids
+Football watching parties
+School events (back to school night, homecoming, SAT weekends, etc)
+ Picture Day at school
+Holiday travel plans
+Days off of school
BUSINESS DATES TO GET ON THE CALENDAR
+ Program launch dates
+ Cart open dates
+ Cart close dates
+ Program start dates
+ Program end dates
+ Weekly newsletters
+ Networking events to attend
+ Webinar dates to host / attend
+ Times you have open for coaching calls
+ Block out time for content development
+ State of YOUR Business Meetings
+ Photo shoot days for recipes, products, etc
+ Social Media planning
+ Order deadlines if you need materials for an upcoming vendor show or event
+ Vendor Shows
Did this give me anxiety to think that summer is rapidly coming to an end along with the final months of 2017 - you bet, but I also feel organized and ready to take on the final months of the year.
Another tip: Schedule in your self care / personal development and workouts! Make this a priority because if you don't your end up burning yourself out by trying to serve everyone else!
