I’ve written before about how I like to organise my weekends.
Laura Vanderkam also has some good ideas in her little book. My favourite insight from that book is that there are 60 hours from Friday night to Monday morning.
60 hours is plenty to get lots of things done.
I usually start the heading in my bullet journal on the Thursday night because that’s when Beth and I chat.
And this is why I read so many books this winter. Like today, I can’t be bothered to sit in front of a computer because my bed (and book) are calling when it’s this cold! . . I did get 3 photo album projects done – kids’ 6th birthday, Sabie 2015 and Project Life March-August, but I will go do the menu plan to tick just one more thing off the list 👍🏼 #projectlife #bujo #bulletjournal #planning #pentel #bulletjournaljunkies #marcialoveswinter
Some things happen every week
A really great weekend for me has these sections covered:
- out and about
- productive stuff in the house
- computer things (sometimes) like blogging/ photos, etc.
Obviously, the key is to be mindful of what makes a good weekend for you (maybe that’s getting set up with lunches and choosing work clothes for the week ahead).
A great week starts with a well-planned weekend.
Once my list is done, I leave my notebook open so I see it all the time just to keep me focussed throughout the weekend. I’m not obsessively checking my list but every 4 – 6 hours I’ll see it and update.
I like to highlight the entry when done or if I want a cleaner looking page, I put a cross in the block.
I never ever complete my entire list; usually there are about 2 – 3 things undone every weekend but I’ll tell you a secret – on the one or two weekends I don’t even make a list, I feel like I was a complete sloth and that I got nothing done.
What are the categories you like to include in your weekend plans?
Live with intention: make a weekend list this week and tag me @organisingqueen when you post your list on social media (you can blur it if you want to keep things private)
