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.
I know some would think I'm a little scattered with my planning approaches, but life is an ever evolving adventure. Here is a video about my bullet journal with some comparisons to the Time Power system as I use it now. Feedback is welcome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkm5nZAmnfE
"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.

Several members over at the facebook group - PLAN to Enjoy Life - Functional Planner group - have asked about this since it is somewhat of an “older” approach to time management. I’m somewhat of an older type fellow. … Continue reading Time Power – Insight on Time Management
I threatened (promised) to write more about the index system I use in my Franklin planner. This will be a pretty short entry.The index is simply a listing of the things I think I may need to refer back to in the future. So I selectively choose just a few things to list.

I'll freely admit that I am a dinosaur when it comes to planning. I started with a pocket sized Daytimer, progressed to a desk-sized Daytimer then when the organization I worked for paid for it, a Franklin planner which was pretty much a clone of the Daytimer, but with worse paper. I was a fairly … Continue reading Paper Planner + Digital Tools
I participated in my first time management workshop in June or July of 1982. I don't remember the name of the presenter, but I do remember the name of the workshop - Time Power - and it was a session on using a pocket Daytimer to plan your priorities.
