Plan My Ideal Week

May 19, 2019

Can you believe that we are almost halfway into 2019? I sure can’t. I often think that it’s still April, though we’re approaching the end of May.

At the beginning of this year, I wrote a blog post about creating a vision board for this year to outline the things that I want to achieve and overall feelings I want to have for this year. And I absolutely love it. It keeps me on track most of the time and reminds me of what I should be working on.

 

However, I recently found myself becoming a little lazier. And I thought I need to find something else to help me plan life better. I need something that is broader than the daily to-do list for me to outline an overall schedule, but also more specific than the weekly planner that still has a timeline.

 

I’m someone who reacts very well when I have a plan to do a certain thing at a certain time. Having a routine to follow works great for me, and I prefer it that way. Without a solid schedule to follow, it’s so easy for me to spend most of my time on social media and the Internet.

 

I also really like to envision (or daydream) how a perfectly productive day would look like for me. If I could be living my dream life and having a dream job, what would it be like?

 

I could not count how many times I've pictured this “perfect life” in my head until I finally realized, hey, what don’t I plan an ideal day for my current, real life? Yes, it might not be the perfect day, but it’s something that’s real and I could actually do.

 

That’s when having an 8:30 am to 5 pm desk job works in my favor. Since my daily life is “set” for the most part, I can easily create a routine to follow for not just for a day, but for my entire week. So that’s what I did. I went ahead and plan out how my ideal week would look like:
 

 

During the weekdays, I spent most of my waking time at work, but I still have plenty of time to use before I have to go to bed every night. Right now, I’m not using the most out of this time. Instead of using this time to do something that’s productive, I mostly just use it to rest.

 

There’s nothing wrong with just relaxing after you've done your work, of course. But it just made me feel a little wasteful when there are other things that I should be doing.

 

So for my ideal weekdays, I would love for myself to spend at least an hour to work on improving my skills and learning and half an hour to do some workout at night. And as you can see from the image above, that still left me plenty of time to rest and relax.

 

I also have a pretty set schedule for the weekends since I’m such a big homebody, which also made it so easy for me to create the weekend routine. I am able to work more on improving my design skills during the weekends. These are the two days that I would spend to watch design tutorials and take online courses.

 

Based on my schedule for ideal weekdays, if I could devote more time in learning during the week,  I would love to use the weekends to actually work on some projects.

 

Of course, this is just a general outline. My week could still vary sometime (although not often). For this reason, I also made an Ideal Week Planner that starts from 5:00 am to 12:00 am, Monday to Sunday so I could plan out my entire week with a schedule to guide me through each day.

 

This planner could also be helpful for people whose days differs or prefer some variety rather than having the same schedule every week. Instead of having to decide what your ideal week looks like for the rest of your life, you can use this planner weekly according to your own schedule!
