More Than Just Planning

Growing up, I never really cared for planners or To-Do lists. In the mornings, my brain used to be able to remember the last thing I was thinking about before I went to bed. I always used to be able to know what I came downstairs for. But now, I'm retracing my steps to remind myself: "I'm here to get a pen." Oh boy. Is this what comes with age?

I’ve finally taken it upon myself to go and buy myself a planner. I will be learning how to effectively plan my week so that I get the most out of my weekdays. Hopefully I'll be able to plan when to get my work done in one sitting rather than taking a million breaks to attend my children and husband. In which case I'll be able to spend more time with my family rather than running upstairs to finish a project I accidentally forgot to finish. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve had to cut dinner short or have my husband feed my girls because I was running behind schedule. For most, this is a practical tool that has worked for many years. Lets hope it works for me.


  1. I Praise to Planer books they are really handy, helpfull, and I love them. As an Event and Wedding Planner I love to write every step of my day.

  2. I feel you!!!!! It really is about prioritizing our time and a planner helps. I didn't buy one but did create one on my iphone where everything is scheduled into specific time frames such as 1 p.m. work on homework, 3 p.m work on my writing, etc. This way I force myself to give attention to all aspects of my life, even if it just for an hour or two. Its better than nothing and aids in progression :)
