Welcome to Day Two of “New Year, New You” Week! Did you all try that CrossFit workout from yesterday yet? Me either. But I AM going to try it! It’s just that I got distracted with a bunch of other things yesterday and didn’t get to it! THAT, my friends, pretty much sums up my life. I am SO easily distracted by this, that, and the other that I often don’t get to the things I really need/want to do. That is why the focus of today’s post is so meant for me.
All week we are exploring the TOP FIVE RESOLUTIONS that people make each year to see if we can’t come up with some ideas to make them stick! Yesterday was WEIGHT LOSS….today we are talking ORGANIZATION.
Since I am such a visual person I find that having things written down on paper…or posted on my calendar on my computer are CRUCIAL to keeping on track. And it always helps if it’s nice to look at as well. :-)
So towards that end I spent a good part of my day (when I SHOULD have been trying that CrossFit workout!) designing some PRINTABLE PLANNERS that you are FREE to download and use!
Here are the planners and why I think ALL THREE are beneficial to being happily organized!

Being able to see the entire month all at once really helps keep me on track. It’s helpful to be able to see special occasions like birthdays, etc with plenty of advance time to plan a party or purchase gift. I’d be lost without my monthly calendar! But while being able to see your “month-at-a-glance” is very important….it definitely only goes so far in helping to be organized and stay on task.
A weekly planner is also very helpful….especially on Sunday night when you are making your plan of attack for the week. It allows you to add more details to the week’s activities and helps you to see how all the pieces of your week’s puzzle fit together.
This is the planner I want to start making much better use of. I’m very good at knowing what is coming up on what day, but I want to be able to accomplish more than just the appointments in my planner each day. I’m hoping this daily planner will help me live each day with more purpose…not to mention get a lot more done!
I hope these 3 different PRINTABLE options will be helpful as you approach a better organized 2014!
