Yes, I went back to my Franklin Covey compact. We all knew I probably would. There’s a reason I’ve used it for 20 years, and I guess it’s because it works – at least for me and at least most of the time.
Today’s post is something a little different. I’m going to give you a glimpse into my days – seven of them to be exact. Below are copies of the last seven days of my planner pages. The only thing I’ve hidden from your view is sensitive information. Otherwise, it’s all me and all real.
You’ll notice that I write everywhere and I make my to-do list all kinds of different ways. You’ll also notice that some days I get a lot done and some days I get next to nothing done. My schedule is very unpredictable so my plans frequently change multiple times in one day. I didn’t do it this week, but sometimes I add a blank piece of paper for a new list or I use a post-it for the next thing and then the next thing, etc. I’m never locked in to a certain way of planning – I modify as the need arises.
So take a look at the last seven days of my life and let me know if you have any questions (or suggestions).
