Behind on Work? You Need a Catch-Up Day!

My friend Dan, who has a blog dedicated to work-at-home humor, posted a great tip on his site today regarding the importance of planning a catch up day.

Everyone, whether you work at home or not, can benefit from planning a day, or part of a day, each week for catching up.

One reason people fail in achieving their goals is that they have unrealistic expectations.  They block out time on their calendar for important projects, but forget to plan time for other things that are bound to come up.

Let’s face it, life happens.  Stuff is going to come up.  We are going to be interrupted.  Our plans will get sidetracked.

So take action!  Anticipate this problem, and plan for it!  Set aside a day, or a part of a day, to catch-up on all the stuff you had hoped to get done, but hadn’t yet.

Dan chooses Wednesday as his “ketchup day”.  You’ll have to read his post to find out why he calls it that.  I prefer Friday, which is when I do my weekly review.

It probably doesn’t matter which day you choose, or whether you can set aside a whole day or a part of a day.  What does matter is that you’re intentional about making life happen for you, instead of letting it happen to you.

Let me know how a catch-up day can make a difference for you!
