Life Planner 2018

User Guide

Here are some ideas on how to use the Weekly, Monthly, and Yearly pages:

Monthly Pages

  1. Monthly Focus - Note your #1 priority for the month, so you don't lose sight of your top priority.
  2. Goals/Projects - This is a space to enter your top 3 most important projects or goals you're currently working on. They can be either long-term goals, or goals for the month. The space for the right is to enter a goal deadline, a weekly schedule for the goal, a note, a milestone, or anything else that makes sense to you.
  3. Life Balance - A mini preview of all your life areas that helps you keep your life in perspective as you plan your month, so you make sure to balance out the areas you're currently focusing on by nurturing at least one area from each life category (Personal / Social / Professional).
  4. Task List - This is a flexible to-do list, split into 4 sections of variable length and width. It also features empty (grayed) spaces for custom titles. You can use it to group your tasks by life area, project, or any other factors that makes sense for you.
  5. Timeline - This is a great section that you can use in multiple ways. It's perfect for layout out visually the milestones and the durations of your projects' or goals' steps. Some people use it to note due dates, bills, etc.
  6. Monthly Schedule - You can dedicate the monthly calendar for specific project, or for an overview of your appointments, etc.

Weekly Pages

  1. Weekly Focus - Write here your top priority for the week, so you don't lose focus.
  2. Task List - It's split into three sections with space for custom titles, so that you can group your tasks. Or, you can use the secondary sections for different kinds of lists - for example a 'Do-not-do' list, a 'Call-back' list, a 'Gratitude' list, a 'Holiday gifts' list, etc.
  3. Tracker - This nifty tool helps you track a variable daily, such as hours of sleep you got, a health condition, your mood, water intake, calory intake, etc, etc.
  4. Routines - This awesome tool helps you stay accountable by keeping track of behaviors or routines you've decided to do. For example, you can track on which days of the week you've meditated, exercised, practiced piano, ate healthy, etc. Then, in "Targeted" you'd enter how many days of the week you aimed to do these routines for. In "Actual" you'll note how many days you actually did it for. And in "Result" you can enter whether you didn't meet, met, or exceeded your target.
  5. Daily Focus - A great place to enter your MIT (most important task) for the day.
  6. Daily List - Use this space for daily to-do list (tasks that need to be done anytime on a specific day)
  7. Daily/Weekly Schedule - Split into morning, afdternoon, and evening (six hours each, from 6am-11pm), enter your planned events and blocks of time, but also you can use as a journal to record how you've actually spent your time.
  8. Day Details - This is a flexible area that you can use to either write details about your tracker variables, or friends' birthdays, or events scheduled for the night-time.
  9. Week Review - To keep a balanced view on your life, note how your life went within your personal, social, and professional life this week.
