Monday Morning and it's off to the racesI

I like to hit the ground running on Monday morning.

If I want to do that, I need to spend some time on Sunday evening planning my week.

Every Sunday:

- I set my four goals for the week.  I do this again on Friday evening or Saturday morning for the weekend.  These goals usually involve current projects.  By necessity a goal must be part of a project.  If I'm trying to "read more" - that's not a project, and it's not a good goal.  If I'm trying to finish Moby Dick by the end of the week, that's a project, and a good goal.

- I update my daily scorecard with the current week's four goals.  What gets measured gets done.

- I book time on my calendar each day to work on the big 4.  This keeps the urgent from crowding out the important.

- I book time on my calendar to exercise.  I want to make sure that good things go into my mind and my body.  That means eat right, read and learn new things and exercise (and so much more).

- I pack my workout clothes for Monday.  This is actually a daily event.

- If I have the time, I also pick out the shirts and pants I will wear for the week and arrange them in the closet.  This is a sometimes thing.  Right now it involves looking up the weather forecast to decide short vs. long sleeves, so I generally go on a day by day basis.
