Have you ever felt like you were unproductive the entire week?
Whenever I don’t set my weekly goals and targets at the beginning of my working week, I end up feeling depleted with nothing to show at the end of the week.
It happened to me last week. I don’t even know what I did, but I sure was busy! However, my income was lower than the week before and my goals weren’t met.
I don’t know what happened. It’s sort of vague—eeek!
As solopreneurs, this kind of week is not good. It’s depressing and it makes me feel like a failure.
Ordinarily, I write my goals and targets at the beginning of the year, and then break it down month by month.
Then every week, I take my monthly plan and write down what I need to do for that week with targets, goals and time-frame.
But I didn’t do that last week. I just kind of wandered from task to task, without any particular direction and goal in mind. Then I decided mid-week that my house needed some freshening up, so I took off and went shopping for a day.
As you can see, one of the toughest things for entrepreneurs is to have self-discipline. We have no boss barking to us the goals and sales targets for the week, so we are left to manage ourselves.
HOW TO MAKE SHIT HAPPEN:
- Have a plan—a yearly plan.
- Each month, review your previous month’s production and write what you want to accomplish for the upcoming month (based on your yearly plan).
- Each Sunday, review your previous week and write your goals, game plan, and to do list for the new week. Add time frames for each item on the list
- Before ending your day, review what you’ve accomplish and write your TO DO LIST for the next day.
- Celebrate small wins.
When you do this, your priorities become clearer and you end up accomplishing more.
