if it doesn't get written down, it's not getting done.

Hi All!

I know it’s been a long time again since my last post. I’ve actually been working on some really great content lately. I haven’t been able to post anything yet because my darling techie of a hubby is helping me redesign and relaunch my site! It’s going to be super gorgeous when it’s all done. I am so inspired and so excited by the promise of a fresh new look on my little corner of the internet!

But, when I made this…I just couldn’t wait to put this baby out into the world. I wanted to write a quick post to share this with you all! But first, a confession: I am so completely scatterbrained as an adult. It started as pregnancy brain three years ago, and has just never gone away. If I’m being honest, parenting  a toddler has only made me more scattered than I’ve ever been!

So, because I have the attention span of a house fly, I rely on notes for literally everything. I have sticky notes everywhere. I have multiple to-do lists. I keep one on my phone with one of my favorite apps, Wunderlist. I keep one at home. I keep my biggest to do list at work. I work as a loan processor for a local community bank, which means I accomplish many small, but vitally important and time sensitive tasks. If I had a catch phrase it would be “If it doesn’t get written down, it’s not getting done.” Because I will literally forget something thirty seconds after you tell me some days. It’s a curse.

Because I also know that I’m not alone in this, I wanted to design a simple, adaptable solution for others to utilize. Enter my newest printable creation, a Planner/ To Do List hybrid!

I wanted to keep it clean and simple, with plenty of spaces to fill in all of the things you need to jot down throughout the day. I also wanted to make it printer friendly, and this little gem looks pretty good in black and white if you don’t have access to a color printer.

I also made a special space to put down those priority tasks–the ones we don’t really enjoy doing but need to get out of the way. Others have referred to this method as “eat that frog” or “worst goes first,” and I really love that mentality. It helps me personally stay focused on what’s a priority throughout the day.

And of course, to up the cute factor, and because I’m a shameless sucker for motivational quotes, I’ve squeezed some of my favorites into the margins for a tiny pep talk each day! With one day to each page and seven sheets total in the document, you can print this once and be set for the week!
