I look at the monthly, weekly, and daily goals to make sure they are aligning with where I’m choosing to put my time in each day. If I feel like there’s a disconnect between the two, I readjust my planners or do a quick goal refresh as needed. I’d say this is truly the center of all my planning - What am I working towards without clear goals, after all?
In the empty spot at the bottom of each day, I often put quotes or affirmations I enjoy that I can refer back to in the future. If I have a lot of things or ideas to remember, I’ll make note of them there so I can’t lose them. I don’t usually use too many stickers in here - in fact, I use almost none. I do add washi tape when I feel like having some color! But for the most part, I keep it simple.
So if you’re in the planner community, you know the Hobonichi Weeks planner has taken us all by storm. It’s tiny, portable, and people are making the cutest kits!
Every day I’ll leave a huge space for lists. I’m a list-maker. It can be the most trivial thing, and it will still go on my list. I forget everything. I’ll wake up in the morning, sit with my coffee, watching the sunrise, and basically brain-dump into this space.
At some point in 2018 I discovered the magic of practicing gratitude. I’ve since developed that into almost an entire gratitude spread each week. I journal, celebrate, take notes, and print out some of my favorite pictures to look back on.
