Thomas and I are trying to get our shit together. Which is to say, we’re dreadfully disorganized, suck at habits, and routine, and not only is it making us irritating but it’s starting to affect our business.

Paper, it’s the coming thing in planningville.
Entré these awesome planners by Charlie Gilkey. These (and Charlie’s coaching) have been a great help.
But they don’t include a calendar. And I desperately wanted a calendar. A clean, sexy, minimalist calendar without all the chart junk.
A calendar I could use to play Don’t Break the Chain and other fun things.
So I made one.
And now I’m sharing it with you.

Don’t get me wrong — I’m no Planning Polly. I’m a creative, chaotic spaz, who’s always told herself that she works better under pressure (and does her best work at the last minute).
Which should make for fun reading. (Or embarrassing reading. Whichever.)
My theory goes, though… if it works for me, maybe it’ll work for you, too. Especially if you’d also self-describe as creative & chaotic, if you feel like you rely on deadline bombs to get anything done, if you think you need to live & work in a pressure cooker to achieve anything.Tweet
