I got nothin'.
I have had planner fail, big time. I completely shut down, and wasn't using my Filofax at all. And my life was suffering because of it.
For the past several weeks, I have been using Google Calendar for my appointments and reminders, but my task management went out the window. I wasn't writing them down, I wasn't keeping them electronically, and for the most part, they weren't getting done.
I've been in Overwhelm for the past few weeks. I started a new position at The Bank; something completely different and unknown to me. I looked forward to the learning experience, but quite frankly, it turned out to be nothing like I was expecting. That experience has kept my brain on overload and I've been fighting back the fear and the disappointment every single day. But that's a story for another day.
I did try to get back in the swing of things with my trusty Personal Chameleon. (Yes, I've set my A5 Malden aside for now. More about that later.)
And today I'm regrouping by working on my planning for the coming week.
I'm hoping that returning to my planner will help me feel more in control of the things going on around me. In fact, I know it will. That's what has helped me to stay focused so many times in the past.
Sometimes I guess we just have to falter a bit to be reminded of what works.
Here's to a great week ahead!
