I thought about this one for a while. I wasn’t going to post about it, but I’ve had several people asking about my planner, so here it is.
I’m using a Bullet Journal/traditional planner hybrid as my main planner. I’m also using Fresh Start 2019 by Amber McCue to help me get things set up the way I want them to be and 5 Second Journal developed by Mel Robbins and her team as a supplement to my planner. (I talked about the journal in a separate post a couple days ago.)
For my actual planner, I’m using a Carpe Diem A5 6-ring binder (in one of my signature colors – purple) with a printed calendar insert. Before that, though, there are several other sections with dot grid paper.
Section 1: Contact info/medical info/emergency contacts.
Section 2: 2019 words/goals, mentor notes, 90-day plan, monthly reviews, quarterly review.
Section 3: Trackers (personal and business)
Section 4: Idea log/brain dump/notes to self Section
Section 5: Calendar Section. This is where the pre-printed calendar with a week on two pages lives.
Section 6: Info for contacts (email, phone, address, industry, etc.)
I also have a thin notebook in one of the pockets that’s for my content calendar. I’ve already started filling that in.
Note: I don’t put my to-do items in my planner unless/until I have a specific date or week for it to be done. These dates are either external (appointments) or internal (self-assigned deadlines). I use my NNL (Now, Next, Later) lists in Trello to hold all those.
