Even here at Giftie Etcetera, the new year means some tweaks to my planner. The most critical change is that I am moving back to a running to-do list.
Since I moved from Original FC compact pages to Blooms this year, it seemed a great time to change how I plan just a tiny bit, to address some planner struggles that I've been dealing with.
TIP: Keep what is working in your planning. Replace what is not effective.
One of my biggest problems is that, without weeklies, I have no place to really have a running task list.
But Blooms have a place for a monthly task list. So I decided to take advantage of it.
I'm setting up my planner in 3 parts:
MONTHLY TASK LIST
The calendar contains dates of appointments or major due dates.
The monthly tasks list contains tasks to do in January, with a running task list on my page marker for things that may be done without a true timeline, but must be done.
Finally, the dailies will be used exactly as I always have used them.
The trick is that I am still putting tasks for doing on a certain date on the dailies. However, ALL other tasks go on the monthly list unless I transfer them over to my dailies.
If I didn't do it that way, I'd never look at the monthly task list!
If you decide to do this, don't forget to use a page marker on all three pages. And use them every day!
