When you’re juggling your 9-5 and building your online empire, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and side-tracked! It’s the #1 reason people don’t scale quickly (well, second to lack of confidence)…
So to save yourself time, I’m sharing with you my 6-Figure Batching Schedule. This is a schedule I personally follow. I also use this same structure (customized of course) with my clients, too – always focused on keeping the main thing, the main thing.
📌Pin this blog for later!📌
“Time batching is a productivity system that helps individuals focus on a group of similar tasks during a dedicated time period without interruptions. Batching time helps minimize distractions and interruptions for some concentrated workflow and attention to detail.”
-According to Monday.com
The premise of the business building batching schedule is similar to batching your food. If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you’re probably familiar with this – cooking once or twice a week and eating from it all week. It helps decrease decision fatigue since you don’t have to think about what you’re going to eat or when to eat it.
Same concept for your business.
You’ll combine like-tasks together to reduce overwhelm and increase productivity. Waking up and executing on Monday gets to be a lot easier when you know exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it.
Just to reiterate, combining similar tasks together gives you the following perks:
🌟 Reduces anxiety
🌟 Reduces overwhelm from having to constantly make decisions
🌟 Increases creativity and productivity
To get started, we’re going to batch everything we do, the core revenue-generating activities, into four buckets:
Under communication, put all your outreach, including DM’s, messaging, follow-ups, texts, and emails into bucket #1.
Depending on your business, tasks under creative may be writing content or photo editing, etc.
This is pretty self explanatory but, ANY type of calls or similar energies you’ll combine here (ie: sales calls, coaching calls, group trainings, podcast interviews, etc)
4. Self Care
The easiest one to skip and the fastest path to burnout. Schedule this in! This includes breakfast with friends, workouts, sleep, and other non-negotiables.
Keep in mind that this schedule may change depending on which phase you are in your business.
Block off similar activities in your buckets specifically into the days of the week. In the batching schedule, I mostly do calls on Mondays and Wednesdays, communications on Tuesdays and Thursdays, rest on Fridays, self-care on Saturdays, and content creation (creative) on Sundays.
>>For Mondays and Wednesdays
Now, I know some of you may say, “I don’t have calls yet.” That’s not a worry. You should still put calls on the schedule. This will help program yourself to do the calls when they start rolling in (some subconscious programming here) OR do activities during this time slot to generate more calls.
>>For Tuesdays and Thursdays
Building relationships online is business critical, I don’t need to tell you that. Get into DM’s and engage in social media conversations. Aim for at least 25 or more people to build relationships with or follow ups. Get in the zone to truly get to know someone.
Give yourself the day off to do whatever you want OR play catch up.
When you are in constant hustle mode, you will begin to lose creativity . Because your brain is so stressed out at that point. So, Saturdays are when your non-negotiables and fun happens. ***wayyyy more on burnout prevention to come.
Create content and get it all scheduled for the week!
What To Do Now
Step 1: If possible, batch in the morning or on your lunch break. Why? Because the longer the day goes on, the more decisions you have to make. At night, you may already be exhausted to do anything else.
Step 2: If you feel yourself resisting any activities, really ask yourself “WHY?!” What is preventing me right now?!
Step 3: Create your own. Make a copy of the 6-Figure Batching Schedule with my template and make it specific to you.
Let’s wrap up!
This 6-Figure Batching Schedule will help you grow your online empire quickly while juggling your 9-5 without the overwhelm. I know what it takes to juggle it all and it’s not easy, but worth it.
