Time Blocking Planner

Buy here.

Recently had a lot of requests for time blocking planners. I think you can really turn any planner into time blocks but this will make it easier for you.  You must track what you want to control. If your time is just getting away from you, it is a good idea to keep each hour intentional. What must be accomplished in each hour? Are entire hours slipping away in which you’re not in control?These are some things to think about. This planner might help you get a handle on your day. You can also use it as a log to see what’s happening to your day.

Color coordinating is a good way to start analyzing your time too. Comes with 60 days worth and is printed on heavy duty paper.

Happy planning.

Chalkboard Wall Project

 

For many years I had a glass shower panel in my dining room that I used to keep a household calendar on.

This week, I sacrificed the whole wall to chalkboard paint.  I wanted the freedom to change it and to really focus on one week at a time. With our schedule, the whole month was just lost in a sea of appointments. The thing about chalkboard paint is that if you really want it to be functional and erase well, you have to put on lots of smooth coats.

You can see how one coat won’t even cover the previous paint at all.

A few coats later you are in business.

One of the secrets to getting your paint to erase well is to spread chalk dust all over the board, wipe off and then start writing. Seems to be working great. I like its impermanence and the chance to change it as inspiration strikes me.
