Today is the day I’ve been waiting for since, like, FOREVER. Today is the day we FINALLY leave to Italy.
I had a huuuuge project to turn in though. For a moment there, I really thought I wasn’t gonna make it. Instead of panicking, I relied on my planning ninja moves to carry me though.
Yesterday I kept debating, “Should I wait until Olivia goes to sleep to finish or should I push through the urge to do everything else but the work I need to do and get this over with right now?”. I armed wrestled my procrastination devils + ended up opting for the later.
At 4:31pm I turned E-VERY-THING in. Uploaded every single file to Google Drive for my client.
At 4:54pm the power died. Like POW! Dead. For real. Nothing. No light. No internet. No computer. Duh! You got it. No power. Until (wait for it)… the NEXT DAY at 5:30am. Talk about a close call, right? It could have been the worst day of my life, but instead, thanks to pacing myself + befriending my planner I showed mess who’s the boss.
Mess 0. Mayi 100.
STICK IT GREMLINS!!!
Today, I felt it was super relevant + extra timely to share with you (before I board my plane to Rome) my six tips to optimize your planner. I want to show you that you don’t have to be a slave to your planner to get things done + remember important dates/birthdays/anniversaries/events + arrive at your appointments (or the airport for that matter) on time.
This video is for you if your planner makes you feel like you’re stuck in a correctional facility… so much so that you give up + wing it most of the time.
Is that you?
Follow my lead.
Here’s how to turn your planner into an efficient organization weapon. Ka-Pow!
- Make it a habit.
- Make it pretty.
- Make it interactive.
- Make it personal.
- Make it THE place.
- Make a secret key.
So there you have it my best tips for rocking your planner.
Try implementing these strategies individually to see what works for you. Remember that having a functional planner is all about finding out what works for you. I’m not here to tell you how to plan, but I do hope that I’ve given you some ideas on how to start or move forward.
Thanks so much for watching + sharing this with your besties.
