Weekly Pages what You Want to What You Do

Nothing last forever, not the good and not the bad, there's always room to start again.

Goal setting, and monthly planning are behind you! The set up you needed to start attacking your goals is done. Now we need to connect those high-level ideas and targets to our everyday actions. 

In lots of ways, this can be way harder than putting together the plan. Because it involves not just you and the ideas of what you want to accomplish, but also other people and the practical application of productivity principles to make the time you need to achieve what you want. 

But don't worry, it's less complicated than it sounds and just like you can get caught in a vicious cycle where no matter what you do everything seems to go wrong.  It is completely possible to buildout cycles where even when something goes wrong, it's never as bad as it seems.  Let's call it, the BestSelf Cycle.  

Rule 4: Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong. 

Life is messy. It can be incredibly hard and things we would never want nor expect to happen can sneak up and knock us off our feet at any moment. 

It's easy to be frustrated, annoyed, and even defeated by this but it's not as bad as it sounds. As a matter of fact, it's often a very good thing.  When something goes wrong it provides us an indication that we need to put some attention or focus into a place we weren't previously and allows us to do something about it.

 Making the Most Out of the Week

The good news is, most of the heavy lifting will be done, when it comes to setting your weekly planning and weekly reflection pages.

For the planning pages, you'll review your monthly pages and pull tasks from there to fill out any critical details related to your goal or plans. 

For the reflection pages, you'll review your daily pages and pull information from them to fill out the relevant sections. 

But don't worry, we'll still take you through each section to help you understand what to look out for and once you've planned or reflected, how to move seamlessly into the Daily Pages!



Weekly Planning

Is a quick exercise in setting your own expectations for the week before anyone else has an opportunity to interject.
