I love it when an amazon.com box arrives at my desk. Today’s box of goodies includes a new planner from Tools4Wisdom.
This isn’t your basic monthly/weekly planner. It’s built to help one achieve their goals. There’s a section for over-all goal planning. From there you rank, filtering your goals down to monthly, weekly and daily priorities.
I have trouble planning my goals. I’ve started time and again to list them and break them down into bite-size chunks. But, somehow, just listing them all creates this sensation of exhaustion. I look at everything that I have/want to accomplish and within minutes it feels unobtainable and so, I take a nap.
I looked at about six different planners, scrutinizing the pages and watching YouTube videos. It was this video by Marcijd that finally sold me. Another bonus for this calendar is it starts around the month you order it (mine starts April 1) so, you’re not stuck with a planner that has a block of months already passed. You start where you are.
So here I go, diving feet first into taking a good hard look at my goals and ultimately planning them out for the next 12 months. I have a lot of balls in the air: finishing a novel and starting on the next, getting new items up on my etsy.com, shop, working with Agile Writers to plan the 2017 writer’s conference, home improvement projects, not to mention my 9-5 job…
I’m looking forward to stress-free (and colorful) goal planning!
