Today I want you to consider how you organise your working life and how well you use your diary.
How do you plan your work commitments? Is your week very busy, is it very sporadic, do you only treat clients in the evening? Do you have a full-time job and fit your clients around your other work?
Do you have working days where you see clients and days for admin? Or do you fit in clients when it suits them?
I have found I have become more and more productive the more I have limited my diary and limited my appointment times.
I now diarise which days I work with clients and at what times and on the other days I either work on administration, marketing or on my consultancy business. I have very set times when I work with clients.
The good thing about doing that is if you cluster your appointments together it frees up your time. So I either have physio days, where I am just treating, admin days, for paperwork or consultancy days, where I work one to one with therapists. I find if I do two or three different things on one day I am not as productive.
Have a look at your diary and see what would work best for you.
I recommend strongly that you start clustering your appointments. Work out the best days for you to work with clients and put those days in your diary. That will be when you are available so the client will have to fit their diary around you, rather than you fitting in with their schedule.
Good luck with working out your week – it will make a big difference.
