Keys. Phone. 4-Square.

The 4-Square Personal Action plan is your weekly guide for getting stuff done. The week will march on with or without you. Having your deliverables visible will help to ensure they are top of mind and actually get accomplished. Funny thing about the way our brain works – we like to visually see our tasks and as important we like to see things get checked off on a list. It is motivating and serves as fuel to get even more done. So print out your 4-Square, whether or not you’re using the entire toolkit and begin the highly productive habit of creating the 4-Square weekly and reviewing it daily. Read the blog post about using a habit practice sheet to establish new habits  (free download).

4 blocker examplePersonalize Each Header

The 4-Square Personal action plan is… well… personal. It is as unique as you are. Customize each header to represent what your priorities are in your life. This can of course change over time. Some people use the header for all work or all personal life but we recommend a combination. After all, your mouth, your car, and your phone are used for both, so why not your 4-Square. In time you’ll see the 4-Square Personal Action Plan as a critical element that helps you keep track of and execute on your shifting priorities over time.  A colleague used this with his entire family.  His headers were… “for me”, “for my family”, “for my career”, “for my community”.   At Delightability we’ve had a variety of clients all of whom uniquely shape their 4-Square headers.  One non-profit used: “Governance”, “Management & Culture”, “Resources & Financial Management”, “Programs & Administrative Systems.”
