Along with the New Year brings many resolutions. This year my top goal is to become more efficient in my work day, leverage myself more, rely on others to get more done, and spend more time doing things I enjoy – not have to do.

Are you like me? Juggling many different things each day, often leaving more on your list than you eliminate? I’ve been doing that for years. But I’m also getting better at creating lists that Iknow are important, and that I can get through in  a day.

So I thought I’d share with you my perfect work day. Keep in mind that this is my perfect work day – not something I actually do every day, though it is something I’m working towards.

6:00am meditate, read, clean up email, and set up my goals for the day

7:00am wake up my daughter, have breakfast with her and get her to school

8:30am – 12:00pm I have three areas of concentration: client work, production work, and self work. I work in each area every day. Mornings are my most productive time – I get as much done as possible.

12:00 – 2:00pm Have lunch, network with a group or a friend, get in a walk or exercise.

2:00 – 4:00pm Work through emails, phone messages, and any other customer contact, as needed. Finish up projects, and begin planning for tomorrow.

4:00 – 8:00pm Family time

8:00 – 10:00pm Writing time, and time to research and surf online. This is my dreaming and discovery time – time to plan for future projects and ideas.

I love reading books on this area as well. Some of my favorites are:

7 Spiritual Steps to Success – Deepak Chopra

The Power Of Focus – Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Les Hewitt

The Success Principles – Jack Canfield
