I have had a few frustrating consultations with folks who have been training CF as in themselves doing the main page workouts for less than 6 months, yet they were ready to open an affiliate…NOW! And I get that folks want on the bandwagon sooner than later. There are also numerous examples of urban areas with upwards of 15 affiliates within a 15 mile radius with new gyms opening sometimes yards from an existing gym. Not only did their pricing plan affect their own bottom line, but the bottom line of those around them.
This page is divided into two columns. In the left column, I dedicated two lines to each hour of the day and then divided that time into blocks labeled with specific assignments.
In the right column, I add explanatory notes for these blocks where needed.
Notice that I leave some extra room next to my time blocks. This allows me to make corrections as needed if the day unfolds in an unexpected way: I call this planning method time blocking.
I take time blocking seriously, dedicating ten to twenty minutes every evening to building my schedule for the next day. During this planning process I consult my task lists and calendars, as well as my weekly and quarterly planning notes. This type of planning, to me, is like a chess game, with blocks of work getting spread and sorted in such a way that projects big and small all seem to click into completion with just enough time to spare.
Three Concerns Sometimes people ask why I bother with such a detailed level of planning. My answer is simple: Sometimes people ask how time blocking can work for reactive work, where you cannot tell in advance what obligations will enter your life on a given day.
My answer is again simple: Another smart strategy in this context is to give open-ended reactive blocks secondary purposes: If you control your schedule: Conclusion In the context of work, uncontrolled time makes me uncomfortable. Using your inbox to drive your daily schedule might be fine for the entry-level or those content with a career of cubicle-dwelling mediocrity, but the best knowledge workers view their time like the best investors view their capital, as a resource to wield for maximum returns.Strategic Planning for your Gym: A step-by-step guide by Mike | Affiliate Growth, Affiliate Resources, Business, Marketing, Revenue | 6 comments As a gym owner, I know what it feels like to get so wrapped up in running my business, day-to-day, that I sometime lose focus on what the goals are for my gym.
