Taking Care of My Life – A5
Perfect for those who juggle a family and home/work responsibilities, these inserts are my personal recommendation for people who love to list as part of their planning. After trying out many planners over time, I discovered that starting with a master list of tasks for the week was what I loved to do and what came so naturally to me when I planned my time. But no planner out there incorporated planning space for making one big list of tasks. So I designed a planner insert that allowed me to start first with listing my tasks for the week, and allowed for organizing those tasks into categories most common to those who juggle a lot of home and work responsibilities.
How I Use the Weekly Spreads
I begin each Sunday writing out all my tasks on the right side of the spread first. Then I look for a way to “batch” some of those tasks together into one block of time during the week. Say you have errands that could be grouped together, or you know you will be spending time at soccer practice (where you can spend time making phone calls or returning emails). By grouping all your tasks into one place, you can see at a glance how you can group them together intentionally. A handy shopping list makes running errands easier, plus helps you plan ahead.
By being able to see my common tasks or goals together on one master task list first, I can plan my week more intentionally. Instead of plugging tasks randomly into a week spread like I used to do, I now have a way to see what needs my attention and plan it meaningfully into my week.
Monthly Goals, Wrap Up and All the Things Pages
Goal: Start off each month the right way by setting some intentions for the month. Fill out areas for goals in different areas of your life, plus pick a habit to develop and use the handy habit tracker to check your progress.
Wrap Up: Perfect way to capture some highlights from the month (especially if you like to do memory keeping or journaling). Jot down the challenges and successes of your month, things you did, places you went. Note funny things the kids said or did, and thoughts on this season of your life.
All the Things: Use as a place to brainstorm new ideas, get out your thoughts or as a general brain dump.
