Your Ideal Week

Okay. This is a big topic that I hear a lot of push back on. Everyone is sooo busy. There isn’t enough time to do what you want.

Why are you telling yourself these lies?

There is enough time. You have 24 hours in a day.

We all do.

There are people who get a TON of things done. People who run million dollar companies. People who are moms. People like you.

If you really want to have more time in your day, the way to start is to design your ideal week. Today I will help you do that. You need to print the worksheets and do this in real time if you want to start living your ideal week.

step one| current reality

The first thing to do is to really see where you are RIGHT NOW. What is your current reality? You have to know exactly how you are spending your days and it’s good to see it on paper because then you become the watcher. You can look at your life from a different perspective.

So, print out the worksheets and fill in how yesterday went.

I don’t care if yesterday wasn’t ideal or typical or regular.

Most days aren’t, it seems.

Just write how it went, and don’t judge yourself.

step two| assess

After you have a day down on paper, take a good look at it. What do you like about it? Where could you have done better? Is it better or worse than you thought it was?

Give yourself time to really understand that what you do with your time is 100% your choice.

If you sat on the sofa and read for three hours straight, that’s okay.

If you did that and you don’t like that you did that, now is the time to change your behavior.

step three| create your ideal

Now it’s time to fill in your ideal week. I like to do this day by day, but you can fill in the weekly page too.

First, fill in all the absolutes. Everything you know you HAVE to do. Getting kids ready for school, bringing them to school. Appointments. Write in all the must-haves.

Then ask yourself what you want to do.

What time do you want to get out of bed?

When are you going to do your own fun thing?

How often do you want to cook?

How often do you want to clean?

When will you do the laundry?

Make a list of everything you want to do and then fill it in your days.

you totally got this

When you look at your ideal week, if it doesn’t seem doable, it’s time to cut something out. What most of my students have found is that they actually have more time than they thought they had.

We tend to spend so much time thinking about what we are going to do that we think the task at hand takes longer than it actually does. If you don’t know how long something takes you, time it. And then see if you can do it even faster.

Keep your ideal week at hand. You want to see it.

You want it to remind you that it is possible to get it all done.

That there is enough time for everything.
