Theming Your Days

As an entrepreneur, it’s a constant challenge to make sure you’re prioritizing your time effectively. I’ve tried many time management systems but the one that’s been working pretty well for me has been one that was recommended to me by Jack Dorsey, the founder Twitter & Square.  For me here’s how I structure my week:

Monday: Business Development & Finances

Tuesday: Product Development

Wednesday: Sales & Marketing

Thursday: Affiliates & Partnerships

Friday: Culture & Recruiting

Saturday: Personal Development/ Hobbies / Spending time with Family & Friends

Sunday: Getting ready and organizing for the upcoming week.

By having different themes for my days this way, I feel that I can proactively focus on the things that matter rather being reactive. Also, having routines and rituals for each day allow me to avoid decision fatigue. Here are some of the tools that I use consistently.

Trello: Personal & Business task & project management.

LiftApp: Forming new habits and tracking existing ones.

SunriseApp: Scheduling meeting and planning my week

What are some your strategies for staying on top of your game? What are some productivity hacks you use?
