Since discovering digital planning at the end of June, I have been trying to fine tune my system… It hasn’t been easy – do you know how much I rely on monthly calendars, weekly planners, and daily lists? Not to mention brain-dump-type-to-do lists and writing prompts. Honestly, I am probably one of the world’s worst planners.
Paper systems just weren’t versatile enough. Printing, hole punching, and everything else just had too many restrictions (not to mention the time it took!).
I went all out for July, with stickers and washi tape (digital of course) but have scaled right back for August. I have found a few colourful designs that need next to no work and this means my August planner required little work.
Let’s run through what I have, shall we?
Dates to Remember
This is one that will move from month to month with me. I’ve got one for this year and another for 2019 with all the key dates written down. It makes life easier because I don’t have to set up months in advance.
Yes, I am obsessive. But breaking everything down is the way my mind works. I have lists within lists within lists.
This daily planner is fab. I love the ‘priorities’ although figuring out my three priorities can be tough. I like to have one task from each area, blog, work, and home.
The normal to-do list tends to lean more towards being a ‘want to do’ list.
I don’t really use to food areas. It isn’t necessary, and the notes section never get written in because I have enough space on the rest of the page. The water tracker though, is great.
To-Do lists, Plans, Ideas, etc.
The last few pages contain random lists) from my master-to-do list, to my redesign to do lists, brainstorming and anything else I need to write down. There’s no rhyme nor reason to most of the pages, but, ultimately it makes sense to me and that’s the way it Should be.
So, that’s my digital planner set up, now it’s time to show me yours.
