If you are reading this, it’s because you want to know my secret. How I stay organized during the week using The Happy planner.
First, you can stay organized using whatever planner. But I have been using The Happy planner for years now.
So, I cannot see myself using anything else!
Unlike any other planner, the happy planner is entirely customizable.
This is my favorite thing about it.
I can take off pages, add some, and make it my own.
Above all, the most important thing that the happy planner is bringing me is to stay organized for months.
But, especially during the week.
I am a social media consultant and a content creator who is working remotely.
Therefore, I need to stay on track and make sure I am not forgetting ANYTHING.
With that being said, let’s get into it.
STEP NUMBER ONE: DECORATING YOUR PLANNER
Decorating my planner is by far my favorite.
You probably wonder: Why should I even take the time to decorate my work week?
First, decorating a planner is more like scrapbooking.
This is super relaxing and enjoyable.
Therefore, it will make your workweek look colorful, and fun instead of boring, and sad.
So, before writing anything in your planner, try to add some colors!
Buy yourself some stickers or decorating papers and start adding some joy to your week.
Usually, I give my week a theme color. However, you can use as many colors as you want! Make it rainbow if this is what makes you happy!
I invite you to check THE HAPPY PLANNER website. They have so many cute sticker sheets!
I do own too much of those sticker sheets for my own sake.
I know some of you guys rather watch videos than reading a blog post.
So, if you are interested in knowing how I stay organize and plan a week of content with my happy planner.
Then you can watch this video:
STEP NUMBER 2: START FILLING UP YOUR PLANNER
Ok, now that your planner is full of stickers and, brings you joy it’s time to filling it up!
In other words, it’s time to plan your week.
Start by writing important things like an appointment, clients, big events, etc.
Then, you can take another pencil color, and start writing personal tasks. Like laundry or cleaning, etc.
But, don’t forget to leave some space! You never know what’s going to pop up during your week and you might have to add some information and things to do!
I plan my week on Sundays.
In my case, my weeks are pretty similar. So, I know where I have to leave space and how to organize my appointment, my content, and everything else.
I have a blog post that goes out on Mondays and Wednesdays as well as a YouTube Video on Saturdays. So, I already know that I have to write those down.
STEP NUMBER 3: USE A CONTENT CALENDAR
Two weeks ago, I filmed a video on how to make a content calendar for social media in Excel!
THAT is my ULTIME secret on how to stay organized during the week.
In my Happy planner, I am writing everything I need to do in a nutshell.
But the real work is on my content calendar on my computer.
On Monday, I will write on my happy planner that a blog post is going Live. But on my content calendar, I will know all the details about it!
And that’s it, guys! You just read about how I stay organized during the week with The Happy Planner.
I hope I inspired you to do the same.
