Follow This 4-Step Routine Every Friday

Original source: Medium.

Having a specific and intentional routine on Friday will set you up for a relaxing weekend and a successful following week.

  1. Block off your calendar for all of Friday afternoon This means not scheduling any meetings or calls after 12 noon on Friday.
  2. Spend 2+ hours working on unfinished top-priority tasks – Find a quiet place to work where you won’t be interrupted, and spend a couple of focused hours on these top-priority tasks.
  3. Spend 1 hour cleaning out your inbox – Scroll through your entire inbox for emails or calls that slipped through the cracks during the week.
  4. Write out your to-do list for the following week – With a clear understanding of where things are being left off with all big and little items, you can now prioritize what you will do the following week.
  5. Leave the office early – At this point in the day, you have made progress against your major projects, cleared out as many minor-but-necessary items as possible, and set yourself up for a successful week ahead.
