I’m a major to-do list junky. There are lists scattered all over our house, on scraps of paper, in notebooks, on post it notes, in my phone, on napkins etc. I like to make a plan and work to it and I go a little crazy without some things written down.
The thing that’s a little different about this planner is rather than managing your time, you plan how to use your mental energy. There are six sections to fill out in this order: 1. Today’s date, 2. If I could do today over again I’d…, 3. Things I get to enjoy today, 4. Appointments, 5. My life theme, 6. Project One and so on. There’s a great explanation for each section and why it’s important, and the actual planner is very easy to use.
It’s a great tool for those who have a lot of control over their time (uni students, self-employed, managers) and perhaps struggle with procrastination or distraction. But really I think it’s useful for anyone – I really recommend giving it a try!
