How do you prepare for the week?

My prep consists of writing out a list of my main tasks on a sticky on my MacBook and updating my pipeline, usually on Friday end of day and checked again on Sunday night. I break the tasks out into the following sections.


-Header list of top 3-5 goals for the week

-Administrative tasks (proposals, contracts, slide deck prep, internal tasks, outbound)

-Follow-Ups

-Prep for Meetings (I list out all my meetings on my calendar)

-Set Meetings

-Partner Marketing


What am I missing?

I often see this type of discussion about preparing for the week on Sunday. Am I the only one that doesn't do anything to prepare?ย

I donโ€™t either. I have general goals Iโ€™m trying to achieve but at the end of the day itโ€™s just go and find new business. My main goal I try to hold myself accountable to is to set X number of meetings for the week and the rest will take care of itself.

To stay fresh and available for family things, I disconnect from work all weekend barring something catastrophic from the prospect or a client needing my attention. The weeks troubles will be dealt with on Monday at 8 AM lol
