Have you ever heard of FranklinCovey? (yes - the calendars, the planners, etc) basically the most organized of all organized! I'm pretty sure I need to be trained by Franklin himself...and since that's not possible - I should definitely take up matters with Stephen Covey and develop my 7 habits so I can be highly successful!
If you have never checked out the FranklinCovey website - I suggest you do so. If this is the year you want to be organized and get all the things done that you need to get done - this is where to start. I'm not telling you to go out and buy a planner - but there are a ton of freebie resources & downloads to choose from and to get you started!While you are on their website you can download a free 31 day trial of their planner (click that freebie link above). All you have to give them is your name and email address. They don't ask for address, phone or form of payment. So really - it's free! (I love a bargain!). Within the free 31 day planner - you can write your mission statement with the help of a few questions. So really - what are you waiting for? I can't tell you any better than this website can tell you how to get better organized with your to do list. Oh - and while you are at it - they offer a little stress management test and you can sign up for some free webinars...like the one on Jan 13th - "Achieving your Highest Priorities".
If you've tried FranklinCovey - I'd love for you to share your thoughts in the comments below. If you've had success with another style/system - I'd also love to know! This is not a paid endorsement. It's just a couple links to some really great resources! Happy planning! See you tomorrow for a little This 'n' That! -kg
