welcome to the planner girl book club! what’s that, you say?
well, i recently started rereading martha beck’s steering by starlight: the science and magic of finding your destiny, and i invited all my fellow #plannerbabes to do the same and go on this journey of self-(re)discovery with me.
this is a “book club” in the loosest sense of the word. no strict reading schedules or discussion questions. while i do love those, i get plenty of that at my day job!
in fact, you can even participate without reading the book. as my darling friend sarah likes to say, “just live your journey, girl!”
so let’s dive in to the book’s introduction!
the book that changed my life
i just started rereading one of my most treasured books of self-transformation of all time: steering by starlight, written by life coach and harvard-educated sociologist martha beck. this book allowed me to quit my job as a lawyer, go back to school, and finally live my true destiny.
so yeah, this book literally changed my life!
since im a blogger, planner girl, and–as most of you probably don’t know–a part-time english professor, book clubs are obviously my jam.
therefore, i put two and two together and hit publish!
i’m a homebody. and if i do leave the house, i don’t like to rush around town to run errands. what can i say? i just need more buffer time between chores and activities so i don’t burn out.
unfortunately, this personality trait makes productivity difficult sometimes. but there’s help! here’s how the strategy of piggy-backing helps me multitask with little extra effort.
are you setting smart goals for the new year? or are you setting yourself up for failure without even realizing it? find out which camp you fall into and, of course, how to get into the right one!
the year’s end is a thrilling time for planner girls. we select our 2018 planner lineup. we set up our dashboards and dividers just how we want them. we set goals, schedules, and routines. we can’t wait to dive in to the new year!
but before we canon ball head first (is that even possible?) into 2018, can we take a few moments to reflect on 2017 real quick? a list of this year’s achievements can help you plan for a stellar 2018. here’s how.
a cluttered space can be distracting and stressful. distractions and extra stress are the last thing you want in your busy life, am i right?
for today’s webcrawl wednesday, i found some simple tips to help make your home or office a more mindful space. a space that is free of physical as well as psychic clutter. read on for a link to the mindbodygreen article.
i love to read. and i value purpose and productivity in life. so i suppose it’s no wonder that i always have one life-changing book or another to recommend. in this post, i’ve rounded up my current top 10 productivity books.
we all know we should exercise. and we all have opinions on which type of exercise is the best. but what about WHERE you exercise?
“i own more than one planner. how can i actually use them all?”
it’s difficult not to buy more than one planner! there are so many fun ones out there! so how can you actually put them all to use? most people dedicate each planner to a different part of their life: school, home, their youtube channel.
THAT DOESN’T WORK FOR ME! here’s what does.
the front pages of the erin condren life planner
the beginning few pages of the erin condren life planner can be fun and useful. that is, if you can figure out what to do with them! the two-page goals spread stayed blank all year in my last planner. here’s how i’m putting it to use this time around.
