Well I am not happy with my planner, I thought I was but it seems I was wrong. The bottom line is that I have lots of bits of paper, different forms and so forth of which very few are being used. I am not using my daily planner pages at all, or very rarely and so I have decided to try and get along without them.
For the foreseebale future I will be using a my little A6 project / next action book, ditching the planner and replacing it with an A5 book, for goals, project and other lists that I use. It can also double as a ‘capture’ device.
Other sections in my planner that I will now have elsewhere are:
- Contacts – in my PDA/ email client and phone
- Inbox – A5 book, online notepads and social bookmarking
- Calendar – PDA / Outlook and an online calendar
- Actions – A6 book
- Projects – A6 and A5 books
- Incubate – A5 book
And that is what I have in my planner and is now being transfered elsewhere. More to come.
