Sunday nights are for planning…
If you have taken one of my business courses then you know I do my business planning and marketing planning on Sunday nights.
I thought I’d show you the planner notebook I have been using for the past year. I really love it.
It’s called the VoltPlanner by Ink+Volt. I like this planner because it allows me to set my goals each week so I can stay on track for my overall business plan. It’s great to set small goals so that you feel like you accomplish more.
Why do I love monthly challenges like this #31dayblogwriting challenge? Because when you commit to a small project once a day for a month, you are more likely to make it a habit. This planner helps me stay on track with those.
Everyone has a personal preference for their weekly breakdown. Some people like the days to have the hours written in so they do x until this or that time, and do y at this other time. Since I work full time, I do work for my business before I start work, during my lunch, and after work. So for me, writing in the goals and projects to do during my “morning, noon, and night” is perfect. If I need to write in times, I can still do that.
There’s a whole market of planner accessories out there at the major craft stores like Michaels. They make filling in the days fun. I just picked up this cool stamp and some planner stickers.
I love this planner’s hard cover, and lay flat binding. I don’t need pouches or the ability to remove or add sections. If I need to plan a project separately there’s another planner for that. (I even have one I like a lot, called the Self Journal.) I’m not paid to endorse these guys, I just really love this planner!
