As you all know from my previous couple of blog posts I have a clear obsession over organisation, over every aspect of my life. This blog post will be the final one of the blogtober series to speak about how I organizing my life. So lets get to the main aspect of my organisation.
1. Weekly Overview
On my agenda I write down any meetings, classes, work hours I have throughout the week. This way I can see everything at a glance. I got my agenda from Wilko, its a great weekly breakdown and enough room to write down your daily plans. I don’t use anything fancy for my agenda, just the simple pen.
2. Weekly To Do List
I have a notebook dedicated to my weekly to do list. I’ll write down everything that needs to be completed that week. From cleaning, studying, blog, work etc.. I usually put everything into their own columns titled.
University, Home, Blog, Other .
Here I use a different coloured pen for every column, you will find out why in the next point. I do like to give each of the tasks a deadline such as
Clean Bathroom: Thursday
Write Blogtober Day 23: Wednesday
Read Chapter 3: Friday
3. Day Page
This is where we get down to business! I have a notebook where I will plan out my entire day. I will half the page and down one side, I will write my day out hour by hour. On the other side, I have my to do list for the day. I used to have such a complicated daily planning routine. I find this one is so much simpler. From the last point I use the same colour pen from my weekly to do list in my daily page for each task. Then I can see if I’m focusing too much on one aspect than the other. I always write my daily page the night before, leave it on my desk and I can go to it the next morning and dissect it with my coffee.
4. Post It Notes
These are so soothing, in a weird way. There’s nothing better than taking down a post it note once a task is done. It’s just one of life’s many pleasures. On my notes I write all my biggest goals and tasks and reminders such as..
Sort Out Wardrobe
Email XYZ Back
I love it when I have no post it’s left at the end of the week!
Let me know in the comments below how you plan your week.
