Pre-week planning allows you to Do What Matters Most. The quantity and quality of what you do goes up while stress goes down. A recent study showed that after four weeks of pre-week planning a group of managers and executives were accomplishing 30-50 percent more while all reporting less stress.
Pre-week planning additionally allows you to prioritize health, improve relationships, and avoid burnout. With pre-week planning, work-life balance comes naturally; without pre-week planning, it is a constant struggle and battle.
If you have big goals, pre-week planning is also how you take those goals into your daily and weekly schedule to make them a reality.
Ultimately, pre-week planning is living life intentionally and the culminating habit to lead a life by design, not by default.
Once you have a vision, you set SMART annual goals that specifically & measurably detail how you’ll progress towards your vision. One of the big keys to accomplishing big goals successfully is breaking them down by role.
