Successful People Habits | Planning | How to plan your week as an entrepreneur


A goal without a plan is just a wish. Hola, and welcome to my channel my name
is Julie Vieira but you can call me Jules. On this channel we talk about
entrepreneurship and I share with you my journey as an entrepreneur as well as
tips advice and critiques on different methods to make your business a lot more
successful. Just having an idea of what you want to do in the day is a step in
the right direction I though, believe that you need to write this
plan down. So I’m going to share with you in this video
different planning methods that I use or I would suggest depending on what you
enjoy you might use some of these all of these or maybe none of these but you’re
inspired to just use a planning system. When you are attacking your day your
week your month as an entrepreneur, as a student, as a mother, as any of the roles
that you play in your life do you attack it with the plan? Let’s go ahead and
start with one that is super popular and you’re probably already thought of this
already and that’s just having a general agenda book. You guys, agenda books can be
found anywhere at whatever price range that you want- in different formats in
different stores online offline. For me I use the Erin Condren life planner . In the Erin Condren life planner there is a vertical set up of every week with the
different sections. There’s a monthly set up and there are lots of opportunities to be creative. For me, creativity when it comes to planning is so important. So what do I
mean by that? If you check out this planner
there’s all kinds of stickers on my planner there are all kinds of different
notes and color-coordinated ways for me to stay on track with my planning and
this for me keeps me motivated to look at my planner throughout the week. I take
time with a cup of coffee and some music playing every week to really write down
the plans that I have for the week. And I actually enjoy taking different colored
stickers and different themes and putting them in my agenda.
Some of you guys might think, “that’s absolutely crazy”… and you know what?
That’s fine! There are many other planners that you could use. For example
a simple notebook. You may have heard about the bullet journal system which is
the second scanner system that I’m going to talk about today. The bullet journal
is a system that Ryder Carol put together and it’s a really great system
because it’s basically one where you can just take any notebook (he does have a
dotted grid and a specific type of notebook that he suggests when he
created the bullet journal system) but you can take any notebook and you just
jot down at your tasks your to dues your goals and you can use whatever format
you would like. I like to be pretty creative within my bullet journal too.
You can see the theme- I’m a creative soul and I can write anything in here. I
can write YouTube video ideas, I can write business ideas, I can write just my
weekly calendar. I can make sure that anything that I would have dumped out of
my brain is physically found in one place. Now why is this different than
just jotting it inside of a Google Doc? Well because, there’s something to be
said about manually writing something. And for me, it helps me to remember
the task that much more clearly. Now for those of you who maybe are not looking
to be so creative with your planning, why not use Google Calendar or whatever
online calendar you have? As you can see here I have used all of these systems.
And one of the ways in which I use my Google Calendar is by calendar blocking.
You have to make sure that you set aside time for every task that you find to be
important. So, when you’re doing your calendar blocking you can add things as
miniscule as taking a lunch break or different projects. When you’re doing
this you’re saying, this idea this objective this goal that I have is not
one that’s just gonna sit in my head. it’s gonna be one with the plan I’m
going to take action and I’m going to take action at this time and that really
is how you create SMART goals so you guys these are just three methods that I
use for planning but whatever you do just make sure that you have some type
of planning system I think is what’s going to make you meet your goals
instead of just come up with goals so okay and remember that a goal without a
plan is just a wish come up with whatever
planning style that you have and works for you. And maybe you’re gonna have to
try a few different ones just know that planning is very important in terms of
business success. So try it out, let me know what planning system you use and
let’s help each other out in this process. If you like this video, please
