What would your perfect working week look like? Meetings exclusively with potential new clients? No unnecessary sales calls? Two hours free each day when you’re at your most productive? Perhaps, you’d like some time off to exercise in the afternoon or work one day out of the office. Have no external breakfasts and a maximum of two client lunches. In by 8 a.m. every morning, back by 8 p.m. every evening.
Everyone’s perfect week will be different, everyone’s perfect week will change, but sending an email at 6 p.m. on a Friday, knowing that you’ve achieved all your goals and you don’t need to think about work until Monday morning, should be a realistic aim for everyone too. Some executives consider the ‘perfect week’ a pipedream. With the FYXER Framework, it can be a reality.
What is the FYXER Framework?
It’s simple, really. By taking into account your working habits and priorities, the FYXER Framework ensures you have the time and energy to achieve that week’s most important work and personal goals. Here’s how.
We term ‘resources’ as our clients most valuable assets: those that drive and motivate our clients; those that contribute to their performance. In other words, it’s about ensuring our clients have the energy and headspace, so they always work at their optimal level. Whether guaranteeing family time in the evenings or limiting lunch meetings to investors, our Fyxers will act as gatekeepers to your ‘resources’ so working at peak performance becomes the norm.
My Perfect Week
Given you’re working at your optimum, what would you like to achieve this quarter? Our clients identify goals for either themselves, their families or their business and our Fyxers will prioritise them over anything else. If the focus for Q4 is on new business, for example, Fyxers will give priority to new business-related tasks, meetings and calls when managing your diary. Want to spend more time at home during the school holidays? Fyxers will arrange your calendar accordingly. By using your priorities as a guide, Fyxers ensure you always have time for them.
My Working Rules
As it sounds, this is the structure in which your perfect week falls into. Guidelines that are both personal and work related, such as ‘I get to work for 7 a.m. regardless of the previous night. I do project work in the morning. I must be home by 8 p.m. I will break any of these rules for a client. I will break none of these for a supplier. I will always take a call from investors or my spouse. I will call back the PR team later’. You simply draft your working guidelines and our Fyxers will implement them for you.
What is the effect?
From Week 1 of employing the FYXER Framework, our clients have noted two principal outcomes: reduced stress and improved performance.
Busy executives have come to consider stress as an inevitable part of the job. Juggling pressing deadlines and never-ending to-do lists with important meetings and family commitments can be a daily struggle. But no more.
Using the FYXER Framework, Fyxers makes your day-to-day manageable. From filtering distractions, so you meet deadlines well in advance, to arranging your calendar, so you don’t miss social commitments, Fyxers work for you. They take tedious tasks off your plate and give you the peace of mind that you will be able to complete your priorities that week, without making work or family sacrifices. The FYXER Framework shows that the perfect work/life balance is not a myth.
Relieving stress is not the only way the FYXER Framework positively impacts on performance. Our Fyxers maintain your energy levels and improve your mental well-being, whilst giving you more time to focus on the things that matter. For example, you can press ahead with new opportunities, without worrying about admin. You know each call, meeting or task is making an impact; driving your business forward, not slowing it down. You know what you can achieve each week, so you are better able to plan and build for the future.
What’s more, as Fyxers are trusted confidantes outside the company structure, their priority is always you, not your business. They will always strive to do what’s best for you, what makes your life easier, what make you more productive, what make you more content, what helps you achieve your perfect week.
So, what would your perfect week look like?
