Real talk time: Even though I teach productivity and love planning, last year I realized that I was making one of the biggest planning mistakes you can make with my quarterly planning…
Overplanning and not doing a time audit before jumping into new plans.
As soon as I realized my mistake, I jumped into Airtable and started coming up with a new quarterly planning process that would help me avoid the overplanning that inevitably leads to either falling behind or burning myself out.
This is a first look into that process!
In this video, you’ll see:
- How I plan my months for my business (that makes room for the rest of my life)
- How I consider mental illness and chronic illness in my quarterly planning (save your spoons, my friend!)
- How I start with a time audit to see how much time I REALLY have in the new month or quarter (it’s NEVER as much as we think)
- How I use Airtable’s features to make sure I don’t try to fit to much in any given week or month (Airtable makes it SO SO easy!)
