With the prevalence of smart phones and tablets, I understand the appeal of only using a digital calendar. I know it doesn’t work for me. Out of sight, out of mind.
I do better when I use a combination. I put dates and notes in my phone and then write them in my planner later.
What about you? Do you use strictly paper, digital, or a combination?
Take a picture or screenshot and share it with us with the hashtag.
We’re at the halfway point. How is it going?
Today, I’d like you to think about what other sections you need in your planner. For an example, see this post I did a while back about my planner for 2019.
Share a picture of either the list you come up with or the section dividers in your planner. Remember to use the hashtag so we can find you.
I suppose a planner doesn’t necessarily have to have a calendar, but it’s certainly helpful.
Today’s prompt is to start with your calendar. You don’t have to draw it out yourself unless you want to. Pre-printed calendars are fine. I use one from Handy Forms LLC that I ordered from Amazon.
Share a picture of your calendar with us on social media. Remember to use the hashtag so we can find you.
What does that mean? What houses your planner?
Do you use an A5 binder? A spiral notebook? A special notebook? A Happy Planner or Erin Condren? Or do you use something else?
Share it with us on your social media platform of choice and use the hashtag so we can find you.
Everyone who uses a planner is looking for planner peace. It’s elusive, but it’s attainable.
Let me be clear, this challenge itself will NOT get you to planner peace, but it will get you started down that path.
Here are the prompts.
1. What houses your planner?
2. Start with your calendar (pre-printed is fine).
3. What other sections do you need?
4. Do you use print, digital, or a combo?
5. Your whole system
If you participate, post on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the above hashtag. Check my blog daily for the prompts and a brief description.
Participants will be entered into a random drawing for two prizes:
1. 1 x scholarship to 40 Days of Creativity ($147 value)
2. 1 x Create Your Own DIY Planner ebook ($5 on Kindle)
That’s it. Happy planning!
This is it. This is the last day of 5 Days to More Creativity.
Today, I want you to put your inner critic in jail for the duration of your current project. Draw a representation of him/her/it. Write down things it usually says to you. Tear that page out of your notebook, put it in an envelope, and put it in a drawer. Tell it you will let it out of jail when your project is done and it’s time to edit/evaluate. Then it can have its say, but not before.
Next to giving yourself permission to create, this is the second most important thing you can do for your creativity.
Before you put it in jail, take a picture of your inner critic and share it with the hashtag.
This is probably one of the most important things you can do for your creativity.
Nobody, not one single other person, can give you permission to be creative. The only person with that power is you.
Here is a sample permission slip you might want to use.
I, _____________, do hereby give myself permission to be creative and to explore my creativity regardless of what form it takes.
Keep it at the front of your notebook or tape it to your bathroom mirror or your refrigerator.
Show me your permission slip. Share your picture on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the #morecreativitychallenge hashtag.
