The Best Morning Routine for Business Owners

How I Plan My Morning with ClickUp – A Guide to Streamlined Mornings for Business Owners

As business owners, our mornings set the tone for the rest of the day. They can be a whirlwind of tasks and decisions, leaving us overwhelmed before we’ve even had our first cup of coffee. But fear not, fellow entrepreneurs!

 

I’ve found a secret weapon to tame the morning chaos: ClickUp. Here’s a glimpse into how I use ClickUp’s Calendar View at the Everything level to transform my mornings from hectic to harmonious.

The Power of ClickUp’s Calendar View at Everything Level

 
  1. Bird’s-Eye View for a Clear Start
    • Each morning, I begin by opening ClickUp’s Calendar View at the Everything level. This comprehensive perspective is like having a command center at your fingertips. It shows me all my tasks, across all projects, in one unified view. This bird’s-eye perspective helps me prioritize and focus, ensuring that I tackle the most critical tasks first.
  2. Categorizing for Clarity
    • Within the Calendar View, I categorize tasks using color coding. This visual strategy allows me to quickly identify different types of tasks – client meetings, project deadlines, team check-ins – at a glance. This simple yet effective method cuts down on the time I spend figuring out what’s next, keeping me on track from the get-go.
  3. Strategic Scheduling
    • I strategically schedule my high-priority tasks for the morning when my energy and concentration are at their peak. ClickUp’s drag-and-drop feature in the Calendar View makes rescheduling a breeze. If something unexpected comes up, I can easily adjust my day’s plan without the headache.
  4. Time Blocking for Focused Work
    • Time blocking is a game changer for productivity. In ClickUp, I block out specific times for deep work, allowing me to dive into complex tasks without interruption. This practice not only boosts my productivity but also ensures that I make significant progress on key projects each day.
  5. Automation for Efficiency
    • Automations in ClickUp are my morning time-savers. I have set up automations to remind me of my day’s most important tasks and deadlines. This means I spend less time sifting through tasks and more time doing them.

Wrapping Up My Morning Routine

By the time I’ve gone through my ClickUp Calendar View, I have a clear action plan for the day. This routine doesn’t just organize my tasks; it organizes my mind, setting a calm, controlled tone for the day.
 
And the best part? All of this takes less than 20 minutes!
