Sunny Weekly Planner

Sunny Weekly Planner

Introduction

 

You could call it reinventing the wheel or you could say it’s bringing my own personal touch to this old chestnut.

Whatever the case, here is my little offering – Sab’s Sunny Weekly Planner, a cheery 7-day system for you to adopt as summer starts to kick in up here in the northern hemisphere (as I write!). 🌞

Sab on BiggerWhat?

BiggerPLATE, that’s What?! No, I don’t know what it means either, yet. But I will.

Anyway, it’s a place absolutely crammed with cool mind maps, including mine – he he! You can download the actual original iMindMap file (the mind mapping software I use) and play around with it yourself. Nice!


I’d LOVE to know what you think, by the way, and if it helps you sort your week out. Thanks again 😀

Using the Sunny Weekly Planner

 

Sab_Will_sunny-weekly-planner_MindMapMad_iMindMapThis is intended to be a fun and cheerful way to keep track of the most important things you need to get done during the next seven days.

I’ve tried to include some important stuff whilst reducing it down to the maximum. Err, minimum.

The thing is, when we do start using a new planning tool, we tend, in a mad fit of enthusiasm, to empty our minds of everything we would, potentially, quite like to do in the next 150 years and, unsurprisingly, end up drowning in overwhelm.

So, the point is, plan the least but plan the BEST.

Then there’s a vague chance you might get some of them done, and feel a bit good about yourself into the bargain. Here we go (in three easy steps):

 

1) Top Tasks

 

Choose three things you would be really happy and satisfied if you got done during the day.

  • Decide on The Most Important One
  • Make it No.1 in the list, next to the little green arrow
  • Do it first
  • Don’t do anything else until you’ve done it
  • Then check your email

If you have the time and the inclination, start Nos. 2 or 3. Or watch TV. Or eat chocolate. Or excavate your tummy button. Or print out next week’s Sunny Week Planner.

Oh! And put a flipping great tick next to that big ol’ No.1 task you’ve just successfully completed, and it’s only 10.30 in the morning, for crying out loud! Way to gooo, Tiger!

 

2) Cool Commitments

 

While the internal orange and yellow daily task lines are for stuff YOU have decided to do, the three green, purple (mauve) and blue lines heading out from the oval each day are external commitments or things other people are expecting you to do or who would appreciate you doing.

Think of it like this:

  • Green: Get in touch
  • Mauve: Meetings
  • Blue: Be nice

Get in touch: On the green line write the name of someone you should phone, email or write to. This could be your boss or your daughter.

Meetings: On the mauve line, put the time of your most important engagement for the day. This could be an important international confcall or meeting your mates on the corner to play on your bikes.

Be nice: On the blue line, note down a name or an act which would make someone feel happy. This could be remembering your friend’s birthday or picking up your husband’s favourite magazine on the way home.

Again, remember the danger of the dreaded overwhelm! I’ve kept this map intentionally simple. One line per theme. You can add more of course, but why bother? Why complicate your life? Try to get what’s on the Sunny Weekly Planner done, and you’ll have done amazingly 😀 Which brings us onto…

 

3) Well Done Me!

 

Apart from getting a lot done during the day, why not explicitly heap praise upon yourself for your achievement (if you don’t do it…)? That’s what the funky little boxes are for.

Write anything in them. A self-congratulatory message or ego-boosting shout out, for example:

Report DONE!
You rule!
YES!

Finished!
She smiled!
We got it!

Never again!
Going well!
AWESOME!

At the end of the week, once the dust has settled, you should be able to look back and immediately see seven great things you did. Nice. Well done YOU!
