Instead, I make space on my weekly planner spread for things that make me happy on a regular basis.
Sounds like a contradiction: planning for the present moment.
Isn’t planning about the FUTURE? Isn’t the present moment about not planning?
Well, I go into it a bit in the video below, but the bottom line is this: my planner sets me on track to do what makes me happy, one day and one week at a time.
These are the little symbols in the margins that I use to ensure that I discover new music, read regularly, and more!
At the top of each weekly spread I note:
🎵: New song I discovered this week 📖: Book I’m currently reading* 🏔: Outdoor Adventure of the week ☕️: Cafe where I planned this week ❤️: Obsessions Diary ➡️: Daily habit focus this week 📰: Long news article I read this week
* I don’t aim to finish reading a book each week, but to be consistently reading one. )
At the bottom of each day I note:
❤️: The most memorable part of the day ➡️: What I learned
These symbols set me up for regular, everyday enjoyment of life!
Take a closer look in this video, in which I talk about designing my own planner, and the changes I’ve made since my Passion Planning days:
