This is what my weekday schedule looks like as of this writing. I’m constantly tweaking it to maximize productivity and life enjoyment, but this should give you a good idea of how I structure my days. Keep in mind this is MY preferred way of spending my work time, and it doesn’t mean other methods are wrong. Follow your gut and create a schedule that fits your lifestyle.

I perform certain work-related tasks during the weekend, but I don’t have a predefined schedule. It usually takes me three hours to complete my work duties on Saturday, and less than an hour on Sunday. I also review my week and plan out the next one.
