Crush Your Week & Organize Your Routine In 5 Days

Way back in January, I did a series on the blog all about organizing. And those posts have turned into some of the most popular yet, especially the ones about time management and productivity. Since then, I’ve been sharing more organization tips with you, and many of you have left comments and sent emails telling me how I’ve played a part in your organizing journey. As a blogger, nothing is more rewarding than hearing how your readers have benefited from your teaching.

You’ve also been willing to be honest and real with me. Many of you have sent me emails about your organizing struggles, asking for advice on all sorts of subjects, but especially to-do lists, planning and time management. Reading email after email from people frustrated with their lack of routine got me thinking:

How can I best help my readers find ways to better organize their time? I have so many tips to share with them, but how will I ever write that many blog posts? How can I teach them my methods for managing my calendar and to-do lists so they can find a system that helps them? How can I motivate, encourage and teach my readers to create a routine that helps them feel in control of their time, rather than frustrated? How can I best support them on their organizing journey?

I’ve been mulling over these questions for months now. The blog posts I’ve written about time management have only scratched the surface of what I’d love to share with each and every one of you who wants to use your time more wisely. I’ve been pondering these questions over and over again, to the point where I have an entire notebook filled with tips, notes and mind maps. I’ve been carrying that notebook around with me for months and filling page after page with my thoughts, all while trying to figure out a way to package it all up and share it with you.

About three weeks ago, I finally decided to sit down at my computer and start consolidating my notes. Not really sure what I was writing, I started detailing the method I use for creating my weekly routine, my advice for making to-do lists and all of the tips I have for making your day run smoothly.

This blog explains the process of creating a weekly routine in super specific detail! Love the worksheets.

After a few weeks of writing, I’ve realized that my thoughts have turned into much more than could ever possibly be covered in a series of blog posts. What I’ve written is the makings of an entire book, complete with worksheets galore. Maybe more of a workbook than a general reading book. Honestly, I’m not 100% sure what format this book is going to take yet, but I do intend to keep pouring my ideas into it. And my goal is to publish this book/workbook later this fall.

Although it will take me a few months to finish my book, I just can’t wait that long to share some of it with you. I’m way too impatient to keep it all to myself until then! Which is why I’ve created a five-day email course filled with some of the concepts from the book. Crush Your Week is free to enroll in, and it will walk you through the process of designing a weekly routine that allows you to live purposefully and productively.

Ready to take control of your time? Take this free course to learn how to manage your calendar, plan your time, and create a weekly routine. The lessons and worksheets will walk you through each step of the process.

So, what is Crush Your Week?

Crush Your Week is a free, five-day email course that will help you figure out a game plan for your ideal week. You’ll be designing a weekly routine that enables you to have a productive and purposeful week, rather than drifting through your day. If you feel like you spend most of your time reacting to the world around you, it’s time to take control of your time and use it wisely. This short course will teach you how to design a schedule that puts you in the driver’s seat of your week.

By the end of the course, you will:

  1. Figure out where all of your time is currently going
  2. Gather up all of your responsibilities and to-dos
  3. Design a weekly schedule that doesn’t let things fall through the cracks
  4. Carve out time in your week to work on your big goals and to relax
  5. Create a plan for using your time wisely and making each minute count

One you enroll, an email lesson will be delivered to you each day for the following five days. It will walk you through the next step in my process to streamline your time and organize your routine. Every lesson includes pretty printable worksheets to fill in as you work. By the time you finish day five, you’ll have put together a weekly schedule that includes all of your commitments, along with some time to work on your big goals and to relax and recharge.

I would love for you to sign up for the course and let me know what you think! My hope is that it will help you live your week more intentionally while making time for everything on that to-do list.

Lastly, thank you to those of you who have been emailing me your questions and sharing your struggles and frustrations. I hope my replies can be of some help to you, and I’m working hard to address many of your questions in this book. Please keep sending emails and comments my way! I truly enjoy hearing from you and helping you on your organizing journey.

Enjoy your day!





P.S. This is the first time I’ve set up an email course like this, so please do me a favor and let me know if anything acts wonky, will you?
