Yesterday was the final day of my daily blogging week but as there was a bit of 2016/7 creative goal talk throughout it I wanted to share this post to round off the week nicely.
The video in this post I shared a few days ago with my newsletter crew. Each month for them (and usually for them only, except for this time of course) I create an exclusive video answering their questions; sometimes it's a practical tutorial, a show and tell with supplies, other times it's a coffee chat.
This one was a chat which I loved because if you know me, I could talk about creative plans, projects, dreams and goals and how to navigate them FOREVER! It's totally one of my fav subjects.
Hope you enjoy:
These are the workbooks we will be discussing:
but you do not have to have these specifically to enjoy the video - you can have any planner, none or a blank notebook, but it is a great time to get them if you want the 2017 bundle!
Here are the 9 Tips for using Your Workbooks condensed:
1) You don’t have to fill out every section
2) Practicality - how much can you really do this year?
3) See it as a dream planner - nothing is set in stone.
4) Make sections that don’t already exist – customise
5) Use colourful pens, markers and stickers etc - make it fun
6) Keep dates in your diary to refer back to your workbook
7) Break goals down into weekly/monthly deadlines
8) Create an accountability support structure (you can join my free new 'Maker's Meet-Up' Group here: http://journalworkshops.ning.com/group/makersmeetup)
9) Don’t stress – it’s here to support you, not pressure you!
PS Sorry about the audio on this video – the microphone went haywire, I did the best I could to retrieve it.
