Today, I want to share with you a tool I use to help me with my daily planning and scheduling. Planners are great and all, but I need more than just a play by play of my day. I need a break down of what I actually need to do and accomplish. I’m also a crazy note jotter so I need a lot of space to to have my notes organized. This is something you can fill out the night before to keep you on task for the following day. Because I think this is such a great tool, I’m including it as a free printable download.
How To Use The Daily Plan
| TODAY |
In the top left you can feel free to circle the day of the week and write the date below it for future reference.
| H2O |
Keep track of how many glasses of water you’re drinking each day
| B | L | D |
Make a note of what you plan on making for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
| F |
Hold yourself accountable to your fitness goals by committing to what you will be working on.
| To Do |
Make a list of what you need to do for the day.
| Daily Tasks |
Maybe you need to wake up at a certain time, you want to try out a specific makeup look, or today is your exfoliant day – here you would put reminders for daily tasks.
| 5 Most Important Things |
What are the 5 most important tasks for the day? Pull them from your to do list, goals, events, daily tasks, etc. Make your number 1 priority the hardest task on your list.
| Purchase |
This isn’t a grocery list, but just a place to quickly add a reminder for you to get something you need that you can collectively add to a grocery list before you go to the store. Maybe you ran out of shampoo this morning and you need to pick some up after work.
| Events |
Whether it’s work, a doctor’s appointment, or lunch with a friend, you can remind yourself of those important meetings here.
| Goals |
List the tasks that will help you towards your weekly goal or tasks that help you meet your daily goal. Run 5 miles? Write it down. Complete two pages for your term paper due Thursday? Write it down.
| Notes |
For anything else you can think of, doodles, the phone number of someone you met, what have you.
Hope this could be a smart and effective tool for you to use to be more productive in your daily schedule and working towards your goals. You can download The Daily Plan here.
