Have you ever wished you could just sit down and plot out your week so you could see exactly what was going on, when you needed to do what, and how you were going to get it all done? This very simple Weekly Planning Sheet can help you do just that.
I’ve used more complicated systems in the past, like this one: Weekly Planning Beats Winging It. And this system works very well, but sometimes I need something simpler. Sometimes I don’t need the details – I just need the big picture. And this Weekly Planning Sheet does just that.
Here it is:
You’ll notice I’ve printed 2 sheets on one page and drawn the cutting lines. To make my life easier, I keep this sheet as a master. When I need more copies, I have two choices. I can copy this form or I can print from the scanned copy on my computer. Either way, it keeps me from having to draw the cutting lines every time I print a page.
Here’s a sample of how I fill out the Weekly Planning Sheet:
Just for fun, I filled this one out for my husband. Of course, he doesn’t use a planner, but if he did, this is what his week would look like:
My daughter also uses this form and she puts her menu for each day in the yellow box. I think that’s a great idea.
I don’t usually refer to this sheet again. For me, it’s just a tool to help me see what’s going on and figure out when I can get things done. It also helps me see how busy the week is going to be. I fill it out, transfer the appropriate information to my daily pages, and then put the page in my planner. When the week is over, I toss it and make a new one.
