Productivity Hacks: Theme Your Days



“How To Create A Powerful Plan To Make 2019 Your Best Year Yet”


Becoming more efficient – Theming your days

Becoming more efficient, getting more done, accomplishing tasks and projects that will actually move the needle for your business: now that feels great!

I want to help you not only experience that feeling once but learn how to leverage simple techniques and tactics in your own business so that feeling becomes a regular one for you.

Theming your days

About a year ago I implemented a simple technique that has helped me become more efficient, get more done and make more money in my business, and I’m writing this post to share how you can implement the same technique in your business.

It’s called theming your days.

Establish your themes

First part is simple: what themes are required in your business (and all the other areas of your life) in order to make it run? Or, in other words, what do you do on a regular basis that actually creates your business?

Some examples might be:

  • Creating video
  • Writing blog posts
  • Emailing a weekly newsletter to my list
  • Hosting webinars
  • Hosting a Facebook group
  • Email
  • Social Media
  • Lead generation

…you get the idea.

Now pick 4 to 5 themes that are recurring for you and that, together, create your business.

Schedule it

Once you have your themes, create a schedule around them, giving each day of your “work week” a theme.

Here’s what this might look like:


You’ll notice that the greater part of each of my days has a theme:

Sunday’s theme: Plan

Sundays are my day to review, adjust and plan.  I take a look at where I am relative to my weekly goals (for all areas of my life that I’m working on at the time), make adjustments and plan my next week with the goal of executing on my game changer as fast as possible so that I can take the next most significant step in my business.


Monday’s theme: Write

Monday’s are my writing days, so whether it’s a blog post, an email newsletter, or a training that I’m working on, Monday is when I’m going to be focusing in on that single theme and getting everything I need for that week (or the next) completed.

Tuesday’s theme: Content Creation

Tuesdays are my content creation days.  This is the day of the week when I’m focusing on creating the content for my courses.

Whether it’s Clever Girl Playbook, the Top Producer Academy, Facebook LIVES, marketing videos, videos for my network marketing business, Tuesday is the day that I focus on these projects

Possible Themes

You know your business.  You know your life.

Here are a few ideas that will help you execute on themes.

Content Creation

Random Act of Kindness Day
Make my husband happy day

I think you get it.

Don’t make themes around the following topics.  They should be done EVERY day in your business:

  • Sales
  • Lead Generation
  • Prospecting

Do the work

Two major reasons why theming your days works – why you’re able to be more efficient, get more done, and make more money in your business – are:

  1. You no longer wake up asking yourself, “What should I work on today?
  2. You don’t have to readjust and refocus 3 to 4 times throughout the day as you jump from one unrelated task to the next.

But theming your days is only going to help you be more efficient, get more done, and make more money in your business if you actually do the work.

Theming isn’t a way for you to be able to just say you’re going to do something.

Theming isn’t meant to be used in order to draw up a bunch of plans and then not take the first step towards implementing them.

Theming isn’t about sitting and thinking about how you don’t really feel like doing it…

Just Do The Work.

Get yourself in your theme zone, because guess what?… You don’t have to get out of that zone when you’re working within a theme for an entire day!

What about daily or unexpected tasks?

Of course, there are always going to be those daily tasks or “unexpected” things that come up in any given day – tasks that need to be taken care of right away that you didn’t necessarily plan for.

Some of your daily tasks might include:

  • Email
  • Customer service
  • Community engagement (social media)
  • Team building
  • Lead generation
  • Getting new business builders started

And some unexpected tasks might include:

  • Uh… your LIFE???

The daily tasks will remain daily, but with theming, you have to become very disciplined as to not crush the time you’ve promised to your daily theme. This might mean using an online timer to remind you that 1.5 hours on Facebook isn’t necessarily going to ensure great community engagement 🙂

As for the unexpected tasks, once you’re in a solid rhythm with your themes, you’ll start to find that those come up less and less frequently.

How so?

Because when you actually stick to your schedule and do what you have planned, you won’t find yourself up against the wall to publish that next Facebook LIVE episode, blog post, or email newsletter like you used to.

As for the unexpected tasks that will inevitably come up: set aside a break in your day, or perhaps as you’re wrapping up your day, to tend to any loose ends you’ve encountered throughout the day.

Remember: the power of theming is that you’re not skipping from one task to a totally unrelated one – don’t let unexpected tasks break your theme focus. You’ll get it done, it just might not be for another couple of hours 🙂

Are you in?

I’m not just writing about stuff that “might work” here.

So whether you love planning and processes or not, I think we can agree that you do love building and growing your business.

So, are you in?
