I started using 3 calendars at a time at home during the holiday season last year. It was so useful to see November to January all at the same time, especially for scheduling purposes.
Now I’m hooked.
It does freak me out just a little bit when I see too much in the way of plans, but then again, that’s the point.
I can see when it’s just too busy to meet up with friends or when we need a quieter weekend at home.
Margin is a beautiful thing and we need to fight hard to preserve it.
At work, I write out by hand all my regular meetings and time out of the office. I find that the act of writing makes me more intentional and gives me thinking time.
Other people may be able to be out of the office for days on end but I need an office day after every day or two out, if possible, because I’m a girl who likes an under control inbox
When a client requests a meeting, it’s much easier to look at the week rather than just the day. Yes, the day may be free but it makes better sense for me to look at the week so that I have enough desk time to be effective.
Do you use a paper calendar? How?
If you’re not currently using a nice calendar, I have some beautiful ones pinned on my 2016 calendars board, including the ones in this post.
