This is something that has been happening to me recently, and with a little bit of reading I came to a way to escape this nightmare, so here is a lesson on how to do that.
First of all, as it is the end of term due to school holidays we get to watch a video! YAY (Term starts again on Monday 5 November!
Here is the video...
As you can see what you need to do is to make a little file, it can be a section in your Filofax or an envelope cut up like I did.
Then break it all down and write everything, first of all make a mind map of all the different ideas you want to try, and ideas you have tried.
You will need to make a short list, and answer a few questions.
1. What do I need my planner for?
2. What sections do I need?
3. Do I want it bound or a ring binder?
Once you have decided on your ideas, start to break down the ideas on to piece of paper and make lots of notes, like this:
I find graphs and charts really help me know what I want from something.
Your Homework this week is to (if you are having planner fail) to write out what you want from your organise, how you will get that and what steps you will take to succeed with it. Even if it is just to plan for a different layout in your Filofax, then post some of the pictures of your planning stages in the Filofax College Flickr Group.
I have noticed that people have not been getting involved with the Homework, and also that people seem to read my blog less since I have stopped using Filofaxes so much. Have I done something wrong?? Or do people only want to know when it is something Filofax related and as I am not in Filofaxes I am no longer part of the group?
