Are you a planner or a go-with-the-flow type? Maybe you’re both, like me. I list everything. What I need to do that day, what I need from the store, what I need to get for whatever is planned for the weekend and so on. Every morning before I begin anything I start with my daily to-do list. I make three sections, and list everything that needs to be done for homeschool, home and work. I want a clear and laid out plan of attack for the whole day. At the same time, I always allow myself to alter any plans I have, because well, things happen and things change.
I have tried so many planner and organizers over the years, I have even tried to just list things on a sheet of paper. They all seemed to work for awhile, but then at some point they didn’t seem valid anymore for what it was I needed. I tried just sticking with the most flexible planner I had tried so far, but it just didn’t seem good enough. I still felt as if I was missing something, and maybe it is crazy to feel like this, but I can’t stand feeling like something important was missed because I wasn’t prepared enough.
It took awhile to realize it, but I finally did. And it’s shocking. My life changes, regularly. Sound familiar? It even tends to happen in cycles, coming back to a previous point. I need different things at different times.
To solve this issue I have decided to create my own daily planning sheets. Now, I can choice which one to use based on the time of year or what is going on.
I do alter and make new planning sheets when I find the need to, but so far this year I have created these three. I have a few more in the works and when they are ready to be shared, shared they will be.
These are free for you to print off and use for yourself.
