How I Plan My Day
I love how daily planning gives structure to my day. Not only does daily planning help me make sure I get everything done, but it helps me make sure I'm not overextending myself.
So, just like my monthly and daily planning, I start with my Goals and Tasks insert. Here I have my top goals and recurring tasks. I moved some weekly tasks onto task cards, thats why the "task" section on this insert is pretty bare.
On the right side is my ideal daily schedule.
I also reference my weekly insert to add in calendar items and tasks onto my my daily spread.
I love this timed daily insert. I start with writing out my schedule for the day on the left column. I'm mostly just copying over my ideal schedule from the Goals and Tasks insert, adding or tweaking as needed.
Then on the right column I list out my tasks. I like writing my tasks next to the times of day I plan to tackle them. I just found out this is called time blocking. I love planning my tasks this way so I dedicate certain times to certain tasks instead of facing one long to do list.
In the notes section at the bottom, I note any shipments I'm expecting.
My daily spread in on the left side of the rings, and I have a daily dashboard to the right side. This is a plastic pocket page from Foxy Fix, but I don't think they sell them anymore. I keep my task cards and cute sticky notes in the top pocket. I keep a list sticky note in the bottom pocket for project tasks.
Behind my daily dashboard I have blank note paper that I use as an "inbox" to jot down things as they come up, then process them at the end of the day.
And that's it! I keep my planner open on my table so I can reference it throughout the day.
In the video below I show how I planned my day yesterday. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions :)
