What's your Wednesday plan?
Why Wednesday? Well it's just as arbitrary as an other day of the week, and you already know why you're suppossed to have a plan on Monday. The challenge is that you start out with the best of intentions on Monday morning, yet the interruptions and work-flow of the day can quickly derail your best laid plans.
It's easy to get off track, and let the demands of the moment interrupt your company and professional goals. Before you know it, you're not making any progress towards them until you re-plan the following week and repeat this vicious cycle.
Here is a quick 5 step strategy you can implement to immediately change the course of your week and future:
1 - Schedule a meeting with yourself Tuesday afternoon or night for 20 minutes
2 - Do a quick assessment of where you're at, what you have on the schedule, & quickly review your goals. By now you know what you can expect for the balance of the week
3 - Write out a list of 5 action items that will cause you to make progress achieving your goals
4 - Schedule them as meetings in open slots during the remainder of your week starting Wednesday morning - allowing for interuptions of course
5 - Share your plan with a colleague to hold yourself accountable
Having any plan beats no plan, but not taking action makes the plan worthless. Set yourself up to succeed by having a Wednesday plan. You still must work out the details on Sunday or Monday to make this happen. But this simple and effective strategy will cause you to follow through regardless of what derails you on Monday morning.
