Amy was kind enough to ask for pictures of my “new approach” from Planners are for Planning article. Having the camera at my disposal, and the muse of photography on my side (normally I have the muse of blurred photos), I put together some pictures. Click on any photo to enlarge it to see details.
The Book Cover
As you can see, it’s a pretty ordinary spiral bound notebook, which I found in the bargain section of Barnes and Noble.
The Project Page and Inside Cover
The inside cover has a list of questions gleaned from a favorite writer that struck me as pertinent. Not in the scolding way my mother used to ask, but as real questions. Underneath are a few sticky notes to make quick notes of things that don’t necessarily work into a project, but I don’t want to forget.
The right-hand page is the project listing. It was started 12/14, and I add things as they come up. The project listing helps me keep myself real — I can’t add too much here and expect to make real progress on anything.
The Project Pages
These are two sample project pages. The first one shows the blogging page, along with some dated items, and some brainstorming. The second shows a sample of a project with sub-projects and dates.
The Daily Page
This last page is a sample of one of my daily pages (1/3/10, although the date isn’t showing). The left-hand page lists my non-project tasks, and the right-hand page has tasks that correspond to items in the project pages.
I hope this helps!
