Capacity Planning, Colorful Shorts + Crop Top

When was the last time you checked your capacity? 

If you've ever worked in business operations, the prase capacity planning has probably come up pretty often. In my line of work, capacity comes up all the time. In fact, capacity planning is so crucial to the success of the business that we have multiple meetings dedicated to it each week. Capacity planning basically means that we plan for the work that we want are asked to take on and will work out possible solutions to meet that demand. If we are asked to meet higher demand that we have the capacity to take on based on our available labor hours, then we will have to cap down to our limits.

Capacity planning can also be applied to our everyday lives. Before you put something else on your plate, check your capacity. If you find that you don't have enough time, energy, whatever the resources may be that you need to complete all the things you want to accomplish on a given day or within this week, be real with yourself and set your limits. Personally, capacity planning creates more peace and limits stress and burnout because we set boundaries to not take on more than we can handle. So before you make any more plans for the rest of this week, check your capacity!

Some ways to address capacity in your own life and plan accordingly are:

  • make a list of your needs and wants, then prioritize them
  • set goals with different timelines so you are not putting unrealistic pressure on yourself to accomplish something that may take more time and planning
  • set boundaries for your time
  • say no to things that don't bring you peace 
  • learn to rest often and give yourself grace
