Here’s one of the small changes I’ve made to my days in the past two months: more intentional planning each morning and each week.
For home I review weekly. I’ve incorporated reviews of my systems as much as my task list. I find that I have too many inboxes to manage and once they become messy I get much less value out of each additional thing I add.
My work reviews are much more detailed and are broken into daily processing reviews and weekly clean-up work.
Those weekly tasks to clean out my email and desktop are great ways to set me up to with fewer burdens come Monday morning.
The daily reviews happen first thing in the morning and encourage me to be prepared for my activities each day.
