Grab this free weekly planning printable, weekly planning pages that will help you set goals and be more productive using a simple technique called time blocking! (Oh and did I mention that the printables are pretty too?! Yippee!!)
I am always much more productive when I have a plan. Having a plan helps me think ahead, prioritize my time, and stay on task rather than getting distracted. When I do a good job of managing my time, I make more progress toward my goals, and those little steps each day and each week really add up!
So in order to help me plan my week more effectively, I created a pretty weekly planning printable. This two-page printable has plenty of room for planning. It includes space for setting goals and making notes. And it even helps me time block my days so I always know what I’m supposed to be doing next.

Setting Goals for the Week
Now that you’ve gotten your pages printed and ready to go, let’s make a plan for the week!
One of the most helpful parts of this printable is the little block on the bottom of the first page that gives me space to set some weekly goals.
I am a bit fanatical about goal setting because I think goals work. Goals keep me motivated by giving me something to shoot for. I’m a lot less likely to waste my time when I’m working toward a specific result.
Goals won’t do me any good, though, without a system and a plan to make them happen. That’s where the time blocking part of the printable comes in!
Planning Your Week with Time Blocking
What is time blocking?
Time blocking is the process of assigning our tasks for the day to a specific time on our calendar. This helps us stay on task and eliminate distractions because we know we only have a certain amount of time to complete the task before we have to move on to the next thing. (And keeps us from getting lost in the endless scroll of Instagram or TikTok!)
While time blocking seems like it would be limiting at first, it is actually pretty freeing. Say I’m working on a project and I remember an email I need to respond to. Instead of interrupting my focused work time to attend to the email, I can have confidence that I have time scheduled into my day to tackle email, so I know I can respond during the block I have allocated for it. I can continue on with my project without distraction or interruption and accomplish more in the process.
With time blocking, I end up with more completed projects and less loose ends that I’ve left hanging because I was trying to run from thing to thing to thing. Time blocking keeps me on task.
Collect All Thoughts in One Place on the Weekly Planning Printable
Finally, I added a small notes section at the bottom of the weekly planning printable where I can collect any thoughts and ideas that pop into my head while I’m working.
This makes it easy to stay on task but not forget other details I may want to remember or pursue. If my new thoughts or ideas require a specific action, I can easily add them to my time blocking plan later in the week.
Weekly Planning Printable: Final Thoughts
While thinking about everything we need to accomplish in our week may feel pretty daunting, it’s a lot easier to tackle our to-do list with purpose when we have a plan. Add in the productivity benefits of time-blocking, and we’ll be able to accomplish more than we ever thought possible!
I hope this weekly planning printable will be helpful for you as you work to make the most of your time and accomplish more. Happy planning!
