Doing it Later

So for the past 3 years, I've bought myself weekly planners with the intention of, well, planning my life one week at a time. I usually do well for the first few weeks, then it tapers off. Then I pick it back up again for a short period. It's great when I do use it, but being consistent is my problem. So a few weeks ago, I as at the bookstore and saw the "Do it Later" planner for the "creative procrastinator." Perfect! It has little tips for procrastinating (not that I need help in this area) and a doodle section for where I should be writing my to do lists. And I must say that so far, this year, I have been very good at procrastinating. I've actually been very good at writing my to do lists in this planner, only to rewrite them a week later. By writing this blog post, I can now actually cross something off! So here's the first tip: Monday is the most popular day to visit Internet shopping sites - plan a light workday. Being that I sell my jewelry online, it would be the opposite for me, but I just thought I'd share.

I need that. I usually buy the planner, and then write what happened in it after the fact. Which, is really pointless.

Ha! I am on the other end of the spectrum. I can't do anything if I haven't already put it in my planner first! Love it!

publicknitting, I used to do that too. I would use it more like a diary to keep track of what happened. But I also have journals, which I never use.

Enve, I will put up little procrastinating tips here and there. :)

Lynelle, I do get more things done once it's in the planner. But I need to put on my to do list, make a to do list. Ha!

I used that planner last year and loved it! The little activities for killing time are fantastic ;-)
