A Guide to Imperfect Planning
Planning is such a fun hobby.
There are endless ways to be creative. There are stickers, markers, stamps, and so much more1 Not to mention, it’s always awesome to know what is going on in your own life.
However, the downside to all the pretty paper and all the things is that sometimes life can be so busy, you run out of time to write everything down.
Then, next thing you know, you have blank pages upon pages.
What do you do after that?
Grow Through what you go through
Extend yourself some grace. I had to get to a point where I just had to be happy that I had the opportunity to use some of the pages in my planner.
I mean my planner is here to help me not hold me back and make me feel bad or inadequate.
Love yourself, and your planner enough to accept that as long as you have each other you can always get back on track.
Goal Setting process using a planner
A good way to set your goals is to:
- Get the big picture
- Separate it up into chunks
- Then break it up into smaller pieces
This reminds me of when my dad used to ask me how someone would eat an elephant.
After I told him they wouldn’t. He would always look at me and say “one bite at a time”
That, my friend, is how you tackle a goal, one piece at a time
Space for Goal Setting
Where do you set your goals? How do you celebrate your accomplishments?
