For years now I have kept a day-planner, one of those larger ones, the size of a piece of copy paper, with each week taking up a spread and each day showing the hours from 8am-8pm. I had this wild idea that I needed a new, updated tracking system to go with my new job. So I got a new journal and watched the video for the Bullet system. I think I did it for about a day. I just missed the old book--where I could SEE at a glance when I had meetings and classes and etc. But the new book has an index, and I can write whatever I need in it: lists, addresses, ideas, notes. So my planners have decided to shack up. They're not getting married: too old-fashioned of an idea. But they co-habitate in my backpack (I need a new one of those: deets to come--I'm in the market for a leather one that looks like Indiana Jones would've owned it). The big silver planner has my daily appointments listed; the little turquoise one has all of the notes and stuff I CANNOT LOSE in it. Work schedule SORTED!
Now if only I can get my life sorted. To get started, I made an index entry in the turquoise book and called in Life To-Do. It's nearly full already. First up: quit the gym (because the 3-hour block of time it takes is just not happening with my new schedule) and buy a rowing machine. Having disposable income is nice!
Also on the list:
Sort a pair of stories to self pub via Amazon KDP
Finish dealing with my new visa (the immigration kind, not the credit kind)
Do my taxes (ugh)
Schedule a holiday!
Here, have a nice photo taken at Fenton House, London, in April 2011.
