Yep, that’s me! Life is better outdoors! I've not been "planning" much lately, more just waking up and dealing with what the day brings. I've been skiing several times this winter and have had a wonderful time. I hadn't been on skis at all for at least 30 years and have been amazed that I … Continue reading What Have I Been Doing Lately?
That’s It I don’t understand all the DIY and decorated planner types that lay out the months, weeks, days and even the entire year and all the trackers before they even use their bullet journal. I’m set for June.
Overview I posted a link to a video I made about my return to using a bullet journal. I thought it would be good for a longer write up to explain some of the parts of the bullet journal I am using. This is the notebook cover I made for my bullet journal. Veg Tan … Continue reading Bullet Journal Write-Up – with pictures

I have a smart phone. I carry it everywhere with me. I'm 56 years old and my eyes don't work quite like they used to. I almost went to the phablet craze when I replaced my humongous Note 8, but chose to go smaller with an S10E. I know that my smartphone is a tool … Continue reading New Binder
Yesterday my wife asked me if got a new planner. I was a little nonplussed for just a bit because I hadn't. But she continued, "Well, I saw a box from Franklin, so assumed you did." That's when my man brain finally snapped to what she meant. I ordered refills of the guts of my … Continue reading 2020 Planner Setup
"Time Management" experts seem to encourage getting everything out of your mind and into your trusted collection device - like a planner or app. I've heard the term 'brain dump' used many times over the past number of years. I became familiar with the term 'grasscatcher' list over 35 years ago. Brain dumps or grasscatcher … Continue reading Overwhelmed by Distractions?
I'm sure I'm not the only person who spends a great deal of time pondering goals and how to reach them. Recently I decided to rethink my long term and intermediate goals to help me gain more focus. As 2019 came to an end, I recognized that my long term goals had perhaps gotten out … Continue reading Goal Setting Reset…
I'm a prolific reader of fiction. My average over the past 35 years has been around 60 books per year. I will admit that my recall of material is not that great as speed reading doesn't really help my retention, which is why I have certain books that I read over and over again, I … Continue reading Reading Goals
