Part 2: Important

Webster’s Dictionary defines Important as marked by or indicative of significant worth. In last month’s series we spoke about urgent tasks and now here comes important.  Last month I talked about Urgent tasks, and those are the “put out the damn fire” task items.  Important tasks for me are those pesky “I gotta do this” to do’s.

For instance, I have four phone calls to make this week.  I would add them to my planner but with no red star to signify urgency. Don’t get me wrong here, these are items that have to be completed this week. If I find that I’m simply procrastinating, I can quickly turn these over to the Urgent side with simple red star.

Again, I have to say that determining what is urgent and important will be up to you and your needs. This exercise is individual driven but I think it lightens the load a little when you seem to have days when you have a flare and you can pop open the planner to see if there is anything requires your attention.

This has become a huge help to me as many of my plans often go astray. I just want to be able to know that before I crash out on my lovely bed, I’ve taken care of what needs to be done.

My weekly section has been though quite a few changes in the three weeks of #OneBookJuly2016. I have dedicated the weekly section for my #sidehustle side of life (blogging, YouTube, & direct sales) in hopes of having a better organized life. I will show “after the pen” on my IG account and on next weeks video.

One Book July – Monthly View

Hello again, here’s week two of the #oneBookJuly2016 challenge

Just a quick video showing a comparison of my monthly Midori calendar to the Hobonichi. Keeping it pretty streamline with only showing appointments, re-occurring tasks, meetings, birthday’s and special events. Leaving the nitty-gritty of planning to the weekly and daily pages.
