My Daily Planner
After years of making lists and trying planners, I set out a couple years ago to make a daily planner that works the way I work and thinks the way I think. If you are a ‘planner person’, you might say that your planner is your brain. On super busy days, that’s how I feel about my planner.
Here’s a little peek into how I use it for daily planning….
I start with the TOP 3 TASKS and frame my day around that. These are the three things that I need to get done. It might be work related, family related, or home related – these are the must-dos.
- I use a little color coding for the kids’ activities.
- I separate work and home. By keeping these two things separate, I find that I get more done in each category per day.
- I keep receipts, stamps, stickers, and notes in the back pocket so they’re handy.

PRODUCTIVITY TIP: On days where I have a lot going on or I feel overwhelmed, or in preparation for the weekend/week ahead, I’ll do a little brain dump and write down all the things that are swirling around in my head. Then I prioritize them and put them into the next day. If they’re on paper and one of my TOP 3, I know I’ll get them done.
