The first draft of this book was written in a notebook while I was at various doctors’ appointments. At the time, I was keeping a Bullet Journal. I had several people ask me how to do it.
I repeated myself so often, I decided to write a book. It’s not very long, but it doesn’t have to be. Please be aware that in this book, I’m not talking specifically about the Bullet Journal Method. That is the intellectual property of Ryder Carroll. I am, however, talking about ways you can create your own DIY planner. Because of that, I have no doubt there are some similarities.
For a while, I was really into the Bullet Journal trend. Then I discovered I was making, basically, a traditional planner but with pages and trackers I need. I had people asking me if I would write a book about how to do what I did.
And here it is.
Create Your Own DIY Planner will help you develop your own planner that works best for you. It is a flexible system that allows for forgetting. Just turn to the next blank page and start again. You will learn the key components to your planner, common styles, and other elements you can include, such as collections, lists, challenges, and trackers.
After I published Create Your Own DIY Planner, I had someone ask me if I were going to make an actual planner. At the time, I said no. But then I started thinking about it.
I’ve been working on “the planner for creatives” for a while. It has elements that I want in a planner – a submissions log, project planning pages, a master project list, and a content idea log.
Right now, I just need a cover and a better title than “Planner for Creatives.” That’s where you come in. Help me launch this planner in October! Send me your title ideas. If I use yours, you will get a free copy of the planner, estimated at a $20 value.
Send me your ideas ASAP! Deadline is September 29, 2017.
As creatives, we often have projects that wee need to know the status of even if we’re not actively working on that at the moment. It can be photos, art, writing projects, etc. It’s not usually feasible to see one project through, start to absolute finish (including placement and payment) before starting something else.
