Every Monday I review my previous week & plan for the upcoming.
This hasn’t been easy. It’s definitely a practice.
- Reviewing my previous week helps me celebrate my wins
- Scheduling my tasks helps me stay focused
- Structuring my time gives me freedom
Now the results are such that I can’t NOT take time for weekly visioning, planning, & scheduling.
I use these 3 tools on Mondays:
I have about a dozen questions & prompts that guide me through a review of the previous week & plan for the upcoming week.
The questions are inspired by Scott Dinsmore’s weekly routine.
Something about paper & pencil!
The planner uses mind mapping (a brainstorming technique I’ve been using for years!) & facilitates actionable steps for goal completion.
Journal prompts are scattered throughout & each month ends with review questions.
I’m definitely buying myself one for next year.

Asana is an online, cloud-based task management software that rocks my world.

Plus, they’ve got a delightful sense of humor.
With these 3 tools, I can keep my head on straight, be my most productive, & confidently organize the numerous details of a retreat.
