Welcome to The Road to Six Figures Challenge Week 9!
The Six Figures Challenge is a challenge created by entrepreneur, TraVal Shanklin, to document his journey of earning six figures from scratch through business ownership.
Lately I have been talking a ton about time management and that’s only because I’m always trying new things. For example, I have been experimenting with different techniques this week in regards to keeping track of time.
At the beginning of the week, I looked at my Trello board for the most important activities of the week. According to Trello, some of my important tasks were not getting done. So, my goal for this past week was to figure out why some tasks weren’t getting completed. And how I can fix the problem.
My brain naturally disagrees with sticking to one thing only. I jump from Trello to a widget on my phone called Stuff, to Google Calendar, to pen and paper. The problem with this is that I can have 4 different sets of activities in 4 different areas. Now that I have pinpointed the problem, I began to brainstorm a solution.
After Googling & thinking, I finally decided to test out a new system. Trello was being used to keep track of my daily repetitive tasks, now it will only keep track of my specific goals I want to hit in that particular week. Furthermore, those goals will now go directly into my calendar where I set up specific time-slots to work toward them & complete them.
My calendar also continues to keep track of events such as interviews & reminders for repetitive tasks. Also, for those non-repetitive tasks I will use pen & paper & the widget on my phone to write them down & immediately time block them into my calendar.
This upcoming week, I will be testing out to see if my new productivity plan does work. I have been forgetting about important activities by not setting reminders for myself and time blocking them into my schedule. Hopefully, following a strict schedule with reminders will eliminate this problem & increase my productivity. Catch me next week to find out if it worked.
