Hello, friends! Welcome to my first recap of this month’s #planwithmechallenge! If you’re not following me on Instagram already, you can add me there to see each day’s post before I put it up here.
It’s also #skillfulsaturday! Make sure you share your skillful accomplishments this week on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag! I’d love to hear what you did!
Day 1: Me and my planner
Here I am, taking selfies with my planner. I use a Leuchtturm1917 A5 dotted notebook* in the color emerald. It’s actually more like turquoise in real life, which I find beautiful. I love the feel of the paper inside and currently exclusively use the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner* pens. I’m thinking about investing in a fountain pen in the near future after seeing so many peoples’ beautiful pages. The size of the notebook is great, and I really enjoy the dotted style as opposed to plain, ruled, or a grid. I like the freedom the dots give to me when working in my planner.
Day 2: BIG goals
These are my current big goals for the year. I have my word of the year (growth), a quick definition of what I think that means, and some of my biggest goals for the year. In case you can’t read them, they’re:
Generate a second income of $500-$1000+ per month
Take control of household spending
Shed the protective fat suit for good–open the cocoon and let your inner butterfly out!
Learn to manage anxiety and depression
Day 3: Note taking
As I read The Emotional Edge recently, I took notes in my BuJo about some of the important parts of the book. I decided early on that I wanted this page to be colorful and match the colors of the book’s cover. If you haven’t read the book, I recommend picking it up sometime and giving it a read.
Day 4: Rapid log
I’m not a logger at the moment. I don’t really go back and do any sort of recap on my days aside from my monthly tracker (where I color in my squares for the day). This spread is the closest to that because I had a weekly layout that I revisited with a large to-do list that I went through and checked off, but I abandoned that idea quickly as weekly spreads were what drove me away from traditional planners in the first place.
