Running a small company means you’ve got to stay organized and make sure you get things done. Staying on top of your to-do list and not letting it get out of control is key. I mean, what is a to-do list for anyway if you never get any boxes ticked.

Ryan Carson over at BD4D talks about how he handles his monthly to-do lists.

I can especially relate to the planning session he has each Sunday where he decides what he’s going to tackle each week. This gives you a plan for the week, so visible and hopefully do-able goals and a sense of accomplishment you can enjoy while sipping your Friday afternoon beer.

    I do the same thing, but I also break my goals down into quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals. That sounds like a lot of work, but I’m only dealing with one “altitude” at a time.

    GTD recommends using Friday afternoon to plan your next week, but Sunday night seems much more natural. Have you heard of anyone using Friday afternoons?

    Chris — Friday afternoon is for chilling out, drinking beer, and relaxing. Not planning your next week. Not for me anyway. ;)
