The best thing about a planner is how it takes away stress. But a planner won't work if you don't make an actual plan.
The first step in a plan is identifying what goes into the plan.
I called those first, most important items fires.
Each week, I grab my planner, my daily pages (torn out and hole-punched here from a Quo Vadis bound planner into my Franklin Covey ring bound), and my weekly spread, and make a plan to put out the biggest fires.
Fires are things that, left alone, will become overwhelming or out of control. This week, that includes a work project, shopping for Easter, and packing for a quick road trip.
All of those things get worked into a weekly plan - and sometimes onto a subsequent daily docket - so that things never get out of control.
What are your fires?
