Show Notes

In last week's episode, we got really clear on how to plan your ideal year in line with your vision, mission, and values. This week, I thought it would be fun to bring it from the long-term into the short-term and look at how we can plan our ideal week.

By taking the goals you've set for yourself down to the weekly level, we'll create the structure that allows you to implement your vision.

Effective planning comes from a highly individualized process. So for this episode, I will be walking you through the process I use to plan my week and I encourage you to take what works and release what doesn't. I'll also share questions you can ask yourself to make sure that your planning strategy works for your business and your lifestyle.

When we can bring the energy of flexibility, curiosity, and openness to our work, then we have a better outcome.
