Generally, I know the processes for how I do my planning without much thought to my actual system as a whole, including my planner setup. I spend time reflecting on my day and my week to note what worked and what didn’t. I also spend the time to list out ways that I can improve for tomorrow. This process allows me to be continuously moving forward. For my reflection time to be beneficial, it’s important to know how I (personally) process information so that my planner will be the best it can be (for me).
A crucial component is a consistency regarding the content of your planner. Writing the same type of information in the same place is necessary to build your whole planning system.

I am truly passionate about planning and planners. Maybe you’re new to planning and you’re not seeing the many benefits of planning yet.

Obviously, you need a few components to begin, but the remaining setup will develop quickly because you using the planner to plan.

Managing responsibilities and happiness (or contentment) are equally important. So naturally, I want to help you discover how to do the same! Contact Me and let me know how I can help you!
