3 Helpful Tips to Organise Your Time ft. My Daily Planner for Business Growth

AD- This is a sponsored post, and I also received a Daily Planner for Business Growth in exchange for review. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

In the past few months, I’ve started to try and grow my career online, and I’ve started writing for freelance clients and other bloggers in my aim to grow my writing from a hobby into a career.

But balancing these responsibilities and my new part-time job can sometimes become stressful- and I’ve had to find clear-cut ways to organise my time and complete all my work on time.

Whether you’re a busy blogger looking to find a better way to organise your time, or you’re currently growing your small business into something bigger- we could all use a few tips to better organise our time.

Below, I’ve put together a list of 3 helpful tips to organise your time on a day-to-day basis- including the perfect planning tool to help with your goals!

1. Create a realistic schedule

I don’t know about you, but I always add way too many things to my schedule- and then I feel disheartened when I don’t finish everything on my list.

Create a realistic schedule for your day, week, or month and understand that it’s completely normal to change your schedule depending on what happens in your day, or if your goals happen to change.

2. Take breaks

You need to take breaks as much as necessary, otherwise you’ll never be able to achieve your aims and you might even experience burn-out.

Your mental health is always going to be more important than your schedule, so give yourself plenty of time to complete your work and step away from your work every so often to give yourself perspective and stay focused.

3. Choose the right planning tool

If you’re busy growing your small business or website, or you’re starting to get more freelance work, it’s a great idea to keep track of all your new clients, customers, or things that you need to do.

Sometimes your to-do list might feel overwhelming, and so writing down what you need to do to organise your time in a planner or diary is the perfect way to start work and avoid feeling too daunted.

Introducing My Daily Planner for Business Growth…

My Daily Planner for Business Growth is a fantastic planner created for small business owners, bloggers, or even freelancers who need to organise their own time and create a detailed plan of what to do and when.

When working from home, I know all too well that it can be so easy to let the hours slip by or procrastinate, but this planner can help keep you focused and organise what you want to do each day.

I love that this planner uses cute headings to break-down the plan for each day, including sections such as “things I don’t like but must do” and “tasks for my business” or “tasks for my clients” to break your work into more sizeable, focused chunks throughout the day. The planner encourages positive habits, such as creating a to-do list for the next day, and it leaves room for celebrating your achievements.

This planner is great for bloggers like me, as I always need a way to keep track of my blogging tasks- especially the ones I don’t like doing such as SEO research. As I start to write for other people more, it’s also great to keep track of all my deadlines- and I can easily remember all the tasks I need to complete by the end of the week.

I really recommend checking out My Daily Planner for Business Growth as the perfect way to keep track of your schedule and goals as a business owner, freelancer, or even blogger.

  1. Thank you for sharing this! I use Notion to organize my tasks and fit them with my daily schedule. I don’t have specific timeframes at the moment because I want to be more flexible 😀 I also use a physical planner to brainstorm ideas! It’s really great x

  2. Organizing your time is so important and having a planner is such a helpful tool. I currently write everything down on a whiteboard, but I think having a physical copy related to blogging would be nice so I can always refer back. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Great tips! I’m really bad about forgetting to take breaks as needed through the day – that’s something that I have been working on getting better at. Luckily for me, the pets are more than willing to step in and remind me when they decide that it’s time for puppy cuddles lol I mean, who can say no to puppy cuddles? Right?
    The planner looks great! I have been debating picking up a new one and spoiling myself at some point, so I’m going to have to check this one out.

  6. Working from home is great except that burnout is real! Scheduling is important those breaks are so so sooo important. I can’t count how many days it feels easier to just work through my lunch break and then go off and wonder why my productivity is dropping as the week goes on. Great post!

  8. Honestly, I have the weirdest ways of organizing myself haha! I always say this and stand by it but I am the most organized, disorganized person out here! I like having things visual in front of me so I often use a calendar and have a to-do list beside it for every day to tick off! Thanks for sharing, Eleanor x
