The Action Planner – Pages I like

I am constantly working on new ways to organize myself and wanted to pass along this awesome resource.

Productive Flourishing puts together some amazing FREE resources as well as their Premium Planners!

I am using the weekly planners to decide on my priorities for the week.

The items listed aren’t tasks but projects.  Basically everything with more than 2 or 3 tasks needs to be a project. So “Print Perm Slip” which is Manda-writin’ for “Print Permission Slip” is a whole project that involved multiple steps (Create the slip, print them, sign them, distribute them, etc).

This form also makes you think about how much you can actually get done in a day.  Near the top is a little section labeled “Weekly Project Slots”.  Basically each day gets 5 slots and you mark them off as you create and schedule projects.  When the day is full, you can’t schedule anything else on that day or you’ll get overwhelmed, won’t finish, etc.

I’ll be sharing more of what I’m trying.  So be sure to check back!

    Amanda, you hit the nail on the head when you said, “This form also makes you think about how much you can actually get done in a day.” In the past, I’ve been notorious for believing I am capable of work that will actually take me 27 hours. Thinking about what I can actually get done in a day is definitely a big help! PS: Thanks for the shout out to Productive Flourishing! Can’t wait to see how it all comes together for you!
