#TBT: My Planning Routine

Having a clear planning routing is one of the best ways to improve your productivity and for a procrastinator like me, that is super important.

Once I started bullet journaling and established a plan, I started getting more tasks accomplished every day than I ever did before.

Today, I want to share my planning routine with you so you can share in my success.

Monthly Planning

At the beginning of each month, I like to do a little review of the previous month. I ask myself questions like, what did I accomplish, and did I achieve my goals.

I also spend some time planning my goals for the month ahead and creating new spreads and layouts.

Weekly Planning

Sunday evenings have quickly become my favorite part of the week! I love spending time creating a new weekly spread and planning out my week ahead. 

It's very calming for me to sit quietly doodling and planning.

Plus, having a real plan has helped me get and stay on track.

I also look back to my monthly spread to decide which goals to work on this week and what tasks I need to focus on next.

Daily Planning

The Night Before:

Every evening after dinner I sit with my bullet journal and spend time filling in my daily tracker and gratitude log. 

I also create a header for the next day and migrate any unfinished tasks. Now is when I will add any new tasks and check my monthly spread for any events.

The Next Morning:

I recently Made Over My Mornings and looking over my planner is part of that routine. I review the tasks ahead and add anything new I may have thought of or remembered.

I also pick my "Top 3." Having this list lets me see at a glance what my main focus for the day should be.

Throughout the Day:

As I work through my list I cross off everything that gets completed and add any new tasks that may have popped up throughout the day.
