Timesaving tips for your practice: Work a year in advance
This is a series of timesaving tips by Firm of the Future authors. More tips are on their way; for now, check out all of the published tips here.
Blocking a calendar out into the future, with recurring calendar containers, lets you make strategic choices and start to take control of your future. Every year, my partner and I block out our whole calendar a full year in advance, which allows us to plan how we will be successful and the choices we intend to make. Instead of letting the moments, emotions, blow ups, and unexpected occasions run our business, we like to plan what our future should look like (before it happens). Then, we can make adjustments to our calendar each day and week against the strategic decisions we made in advance. It gives us immense power over the movement and growth of our businesses!
