Take your long list of goals, and then apply them to The Eisenhower Matrix. Next, add it to your calendar.

Prioritize your goals in the matrix by urgency, important, delegate, and not important. This way, you’ll know what to work on first. Then, create a color code system and fill your calendar to identify each category, it can be extremely helpful.

It’s time to plan your week. Transfer your important tasks you have to get done in your week and prioritize them. Here’s an example of my weekly calendar:

#4: Monthly Budget

Your monthly budget is equally important, but even more so for your stream of income.

Total Amount:

Pay For:

Savings:

Left – Over Spending Money:

#5: Morning and Night Routine

The Morning Routine:

You need to start your day right if you want to be productive throughout your day. For some people, it’s best to put a puzzle on your phone to open it as soon as you wake up, because most of the time, everyone uses their phone as their alarms to wake up in the morning. Even though everyone is different, the breakdown applies to everybody.

Alarm:

Wake Up:

Alarm Disabled:

Turn On Room Light or Lamp:

Get Dressed And On the Go:

The Night Routine:

Before you go to bed, it’s vital to make sure you have a set time to stop using your devices. When you do that, you’ll have enough time between when you stopped and fall asleep. It’s best to be disconnected in a two – hour time frame. The night is just as significant as the morning. What you do at night will affect how you will wake up. Here’s a basic breakdown of a night routine.

Stop Using Your Devices At 8:00 pm:

Do Something Else:

Dress Into Pajamas:

Sleep At 10:00 pm:

#6: Start Your Week Right

Lastly, the final step is to get your week right

The first day of the week is Sunday. Like I mentioned before, on how you start your day is the same thing for your week, except the fact your setting yourself up to plan the rest of the week in advance. To do this, you’ll need your weekly breakdown of tasks:
