Are you a planner?
Occasionally, I lose myself to planning and organizing. It isn’t something I’d include on a list of of things I like to do. But there’s a certain level of comfort and contentment that comes because of it. Its quiet joy instills the feeling of knowing what’s expected and excitement for what’s coming.
However, life has a way of throwing unexpected curveballs (even before 2020) which makes it challenging to find a balance between structure and flexibility when planning.
I’ve used the Momentum Planner system for the last three years. It’s a great tool for staying focused and keeping on track. This year, I created additional writer-business specific pages to go along with it and I wanted to share them, in case they might be of use to others.
