Well, personally, I love that it’s there to separate work from play. When I was a student, these columns helped me balance how much “work” I could manage each week. I put all of my dissertation and website tasks together in the work column, while the Personal column helped me rest, recharge, and keep adventuring.
Every Sunday I sit in a new café to reflect on my week. The Passion Planner has a monthly reflection section, but I prefer to reflect one week at a time, then review my responses at the end of the month.
I devote 30 minutes each week to whatever I’m working on. I just finished Gala Darling’s DARE/DREAM/DO course, and am now working through Amelia Quint’s Elemental Astrology. Sarah Starrs’ Daydream Revolution is about to start up again, so that’s my next project!
I’m co-writing a middle grade novel, which is a huge project, so just setting aside a bit of time to sit down and chip away at it keeps the momentum going.
I am trying to cut down my sugar intake, so reflecting a bit each week about how much I’ve consumed and how it makes me feel helps me check in with my reality.
These are the projects I decide on at the beginning of the month using the calendar page. Usually these involve one fitness/health challenge and one that tackles an item on my Birthday List. This month I’m in training to hike Ben Nevis, and am ticking off the last few Shakespeare plays I haven’t read yet.
These usually require me to sit down at the computer and focus on something (like travel, or booking tickets), or go for a walk to pick up a physical item.

I tell my Lumos Your Life students to map out their ideal days, so why not do the same with a weekend? Based on a compilation of recent events, my perfect weekend with Monkey and me: saturday: make the week’s menu over […]
