What does your ideal week look like? Not your actual week, but the one you wish you had! I am a big believer in reaching towards the ideal week, and, yes, I believe you can actually live it out. Let’s have a conversation about what makes a week ideal, and how we can take steps towards turning ideals into reality. 

If we are going to talk about the ideal week, we have to talk about time management. It is time to ask ourselves: Is the way I’m using my time actually building me up to creating balance in my life? If the answer is “no,” then we need to start putting the important things down on the calendar.  Don’t just put the big things down, and go ahead and add the to-do list to the calendar too! God is clear about how we are to be diligent, hardworking, and intentional, but all of our lives look quite different. By taking a good hard look at how we spend our time, we are honoring that standard God has set for our lives.  

This week’s verse offers up some wisdom for us as we strive towards our ideal week. 

The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit.

— Proverbs 14:8 KJV

Here is my challenge for you: shoot and aim for your ideal week. Make the routines, set up the systems, and then take real steps to move closer to your goals. It is going to take time and prep, but after you have planned out your ideal week, the only place to grow is closer to your goals. Here are 5 steps to get you started!

5 Steps Toward Your Ideal Week

  1. Get clear about what it is you want.

  2. Map it out in pencil.

  3. Adjust to make sure it all fits.

  4. Make it happen!

  5. Review!

In addition to this podcast, I am adding a 7 day course for Life Balance Members on time management and the ideal week. If you are not a member yet, you have a lot to look forward to! Balance can only happen through the power of Jesus Christ, but when we take time to be intentional, he will certainly give us the energy and wherewithal to follow through.  It’s time to live out our intentions!

In This Episode We are Focusing On Building a Life That Rocks!

Sunday preparation has changed my life, truly.  I have moved closer to my goals, and felt more in control.  It has also made white space in my life for success to happen and for joy to exist.  I believe that doing this one thing makes all the difference.  Guess what?  I am not the only one!  Here are just a few quotes that talk about the importance of preparation:

 

“Achievement is talent plus preparation.”

-Malcolm Gladwell

“Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.”

-Zig Ziglar

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”

-Alexander Graham Bell

 

Here are some of the products that I mentioned in this episode.  (Some of these are affiliate links.)

Fit Bit (I use this to challenge myself in my steps, overall activity, and to track my sleep.  It connects to my smart phone and makes taking care of my health easy and fun)

Back up phone batteries (You would think that it is an addiction.  I have a lot of these.  I am make sure that I charge them all on Sunday and then they all go in my purse.  You never know when you will need it, but when you do, you will be glad you have it)

Bluetooth (For me, it is important to have a Bluetooth that I can use while taking calls and while working out.  The link will take you to my favorite!)

My Fitness Pal (This is what I use to plan my meals for the week.  Bonus!  It pairs nicely with my fit bit to make sure my food balances with my activity)

HTH Facebook Group (This group has since become part of our greater facebook community.  We do dedicate one day a week to share how we are honoring our husbands.  We would love to have you join!  Click here)

I have put together my checklist that I use each week for you to use!  In this podcast I will fully break it down for you.  

Be sure to get your free checklist and put it into practice for yourself next Sunday.
