How I plan my week as a Creative Designer

In this post, I’ll be sharing with you how I plan my week as a creative designer with a full-time job in Marketing. My methods change month by month, I don’t stick to one way of planning because over time it just doesn’t for me. For example, I went back and forth with planners over the years to the point where this year I bought one that didn’t have any dates.

Overview of the past week

Before I begin planning for the new week I go over what I accomplished in the previous week and what I didn’t. From here I’ll know that I have few things to add to my to-do list for the new week. I usually work on this on a Sunday evening for about 45mins while watching one of my TV shows at the moment.

Schedule Social Media Posts

Every two weeks I will sit down and schedule out my social media content for the next two weeks. Once a month I will batch create all my social media content and write captions but I will only schedule them out every two weeks. I keep all this information within Notion so I can always refer back to the content when needed.

Weekly to-do list

After I’ve determined what needs to be completed for the week I will go ahead and create my schedule for the week. I keep my weekly to-do list simple as it can be. I’m not one for all the extras that include accomplishments etc. It’s just not for me.

I have a simple weekly list in notion in which I list 3 tasks I will like to complete during that evening. Because I have a full-time job, I can only commit my nights to work on my business. During my lunch break, I usually work on quick business-related tasks such as writing a blog post or writing down ideas. 

Show up on social 

Each day I set aside some time (usually at night) to show up on social media and share and like other posts. I especially take this time to show up on Pinterest and add inspiration to my existing boards. I spend about 10 – 15 minutes on Pinterest, about 10 minutes on Twitter and I way too much time on Instagram. For Instagram, I spend time on stories first and send DMs if needed then I move onto Instagram posts and the explore page. 

This is a quick overview of how I plan my weeks out. My methods will be different than yours but this is what works best for me at this moment within my business.
