You need just one hour on weekend to make your next week productive. Weekend is time for relaxing and self-renewal. In addition it’s also a good reason to plan your future week. This 4-steps system will help you to make up an effective week plan.
You need just one hour
Analyze your previous week
If you want to go forward you should know exactly, what you have already obtained. That’s why you should consider this step as a self-analysis. Think of important deals you began and ask yourself if you brought them to conclusion and coped with every task.
If you didn’t achieve your aims, ask yourself: why did it happen like that? It’s useful to remember your mood and physical state: how you felt and what food you ate last week.
If you ate too much junk food, try to realize which reasons influenced on you. Such factors as stressful situations, lots of work, lack of time can provoke malnutrition. When you realize the reasons of your everyday actions, you’ll get prepared to keep healthy habits and won’t repeat your previous mistakes.
Write down all your ideas into your diary
There can be ideas both for your private life and a job. Later on you write them down, look through the list and mark out the most important aims for you.
Setting priorities will stimulate your private and professional development.
Note down all your arrangements and appointments into the calendar

What’s the most important thing for me at the moment?
Some people spend their day piddling about and don’t bring any deal to conclusion. That’s why setting priorities is one of the most useful skills. Note down the most important task in your to-do list. If you have to respond the e-mail, do it right now.
If you have to make some important tasks, don’t leave them to the deadline. Make urgent commissions right now, or you’ll have to deal with accumulated stock of problems.
What I really want to do?
This question doesn’t touch upon your wishes at the moment, it’s more global. You should find your place and choose a job you really want to make. If you brilliantly cope with some tasks, they should become your everyday job.
This way your job will satisfy, and you’ll be proud of yourself, because positive results always motivate to new achievements.
