Next week is set to be a busy week and I will need my weekly planner more than ever to ensure everything is accomplished. The timetable has been a huge success so I’ve now upgraded to an Excel spreadsheet. This means that I always have a copy with me and others can be printed off to be placed on my office wall and kitchen pinboard.
Below you can see my schedule for the week ahead. For client confidentiality details of specific tasks have been deleted.
I like to start the week knowing what is going on and by transferring diary entries to the weekly timetable along with a plan of tasks to complete I feel prepared. Not all time is allocated to a job or task, however much I like to be organised I am not that much of a control freak! There also has to be a degree of flexibility for those unexpected issues.
Below is a Timetable Template which you may like to use for yourself.
