Ever feel like you’re just running around, juggling work and family commitments, answering endless emails, and reacting to whatever life throws at you? Always working right up to the deadline and never feeling completely on top of your projects? When you’re working for yourself, you decide what to do with the 24 hours in every day, with no annoying boss calling you into a pointless meeting or shifting your work plan priorities for some arbitrary reason. But with great freedom comes great responsibility, and the complete lack of structure and accountability can make things pretty messy.
Creating your ideal week, and setting up your calendar to match it, will allow you to be more proactive and intentional about your work–instead of just reacting to what’s happening around you.
