Get organized, simplify your life and live intentionally!
One of the ways that I ensure that I am leading a purposeful life and doing what is most important (rather than simply staying busy) is by making a weekly plan. I spend about 20 minutes on Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon planning for the next week.
I have tried many planning methods:
From Weekly Planning Sheets in a Binder
to Art Journaling Style Planners.
I’ve even tried Google Calendar.
My current favorite is my Personal Sized Planner.
There is just something about handwriting my notes and lists that meets an emotional need – haha!
I created my own planning pages to fit my lifestyle and goals.
I divide my weekly plan into five categories:
PERSONAL – habits that keep me healthy and happy
PEOPLE – activities that promote relationship with the people I love
PASSION – activities and experiences which enable me to enjoy life
PURPOSE – tasks that enable me to fulfill my purpose in life
PROJECTS – priority tasks that need to be finished this week
Organizing my week according to my priorities in life helps me to focus on what is most important rather than what seems urgent at the moment. Once I choose my priorities for the week I schedule my activities in the calendar pages of my calendar.
