OK, Folks. I admit it. Having a toddler and a newborn is no joke and I am a bit in over my head with managing it all gracefully. Between all of my family obligations and running my own business I recently found myself swamped with non-stop plans and activity and needed a new system to keep it all straight. Enter….”The Daily Docket”!!
I have been trying to figure out the perfect calendar system for quite sometime. I am not a techie and like to see things on paper but it was becoming a challenge to update my calendar in pen whenever plans shifted. Also, I needed a place for the lists of to-dos that are always running through my head…buy stamps, return jeans, pack lunch, etc. After a lot of trial and error I discovered The Daily Docket – A free download from the author of Organized Simplicity. (My fave book on organization + simple living).
This brilliant sheet of paper includes space for your daily appointments and activities but also has a place to record your dinner plans, workout goal, food + water log, daily inspiration, blog and/or work ideas and miscellaneous notes throughout the day. In addition, the Daily Docket includes a place to jot down your three “Most Important Tasks” (or MITs) for the day. With a list as long as mine, it’s so helpful to be forced to prioritize each day. Then, whatever I don’t get done by the end of the day gets transferred to the next day’s log. I am breathing easier already. Ahhhhh.
