So as a young adult, I was very goal oriented. I have used a planner since I was in high school. I live by my planner. Someone recently asked me if I have a huge stack of lists. I told them, "No, I use a big planner"
Hello, my name is Cynthia and I am a planner. I feel a little better now.
I bought my planner at Levenger's. It is black leather.
I carry it where ever I go in my home and out if I need it.
I love it because it has these funny little holes.
These allow me to add magazine pictures, cards, and recipes. Levenger's did not full size page per day calender to go with it so I bought one at Office Depot and adapted it.
I have used my iPhone, a Blackberry and a number of different paper planners. But I love paper and I need a flexible planner for the number of projects I have going on.
During the next couple of weeks, I am going to show you how to use a planner effectively. It should be your lifeline. A planner can keep up with not only what is going on in your family but your vision of your life. The first step is to:
1. Set your goals.
Close your eyes and think about what you want to achieve in the future.
A goal can be big or little. A goal should not exclusively be about the work around the house. It should be dreams. My earlier vision crystallized and I dreamed of a wonderful family, beautiful home, warm, close friends, Old English sheepdogs, a garden and beautiful flowers.
Here is my current goal list:
- Learn to fly
- Re-organize the garage
- Host big fourth of July Party
- Re-do Master Bedroom
- Learn digital scrapbooking
- Smock a dress for my niece
- Host a brunch for my other niece's day after wedding for 60
- Plan a big family vacation for after Christmas
Next week, we are going to learn how to start to achieve these goals.
