Katia's *7* day Planner Challenge

Ok so I bought this planner. And in order to get my money's worth, I better use it! PA is wonderful, but sometimes I need to be able to look at the week and whatnot.

Right now I am starting out with 7 days, but I will try and increase it as things go.

The rules:
1. I need to write something in my planner for each day. Even if it is DO NOTHING! lol. It doesn't even matter if I actually do the things written, just that something WAS written.
2. Even if I write things out a few days in advance, I need to check it each day to actually follow what was written.

I am really hoping this helps!

need help planning

I need some no nonsense tips from my fellow friends here.

I find writing in my planner really stressful. Seeing the day *wide open* (on a day I have no work perhaps) stresses me out. It makes me think "oh your life has to be perfect" and "you can put ANYTHING on here, you can make your life ANYTHING YOU WANT IT TO BE". Which, which inspiring, gets me nervous and ends up writing nothing.

I need help figuring out the actual mechanics of everything.

I tried making a master list of everything I wanted to do that week, but I never do any of the things on the list because I get anxious.

Anyone have any insight, etc? I like doing check ins here, but I would like to get to the point where I can break down projects and see how they will get done in a week, etc.

time sheets suggestion

I'm aware that there are time sheets available here on the website for another 12 Step fellowship, which might be able to help with creating master lists, prioritising and time planning on a weekly basis.

If this looks of interest, to get help in finding and using these perhaps check out a phone meeting or a face-to-face meeting in that fellowship.

Hope this helps!  

Day 1 (again)

Yesterday (1/23) was a planner success. I did not get everything done, but I have found a color coding scheme that works for me. I made the list and referenced it.

I failed!

Well, I got to day 2 and then barely touched the thing other than writing in my work schedule.

But now the pressure is off, no? Can always start again!

Day 1

Is good! Wrote a schedule and a to-do and referenced it as well. Now hopefully I get most of it done ;)
