I once read an article about things you should do on Friday that will increase your productivity. I’ve been feeling pretty unproductive since about late January so I’ve turned Friday into my cleaning, catch up and planning day. It’s cleaning day as I usually work on weekends (which is always a good time to clean) but I still need a day designated to doing some cleaning. The house is pretty tidy anyway so this is usually a few bits and pieces. My catch up is generally just trying to get some jobs finished that I’ve been working on during the week. Having a designated catch up day is the part of this day I really like. Start nothing new on Friday and just catch up on everything that needs catching up on. Finish those teeth and uterus (they’ve been in my sewing box for weeks!).
The planning…groan…this is where I fall down. I just struggle getting things together at the moment. I sit down with my planner and cannot think. I can easily jot down the things I do every week but struggle trying to come up with something that will keep me moving forward.
I love my journal, below. I do Bullet Journalling and find this is a system that works very well for me. I can combine all of my work and personal life into one notebook (I use different colours for different work) and jot down notes etc. A bullet journal allows you to allocate the space you want to the content you need.
Well, it is friday so I better get back to it. I need to tidy up the couch, and shrink some stuff.
