Consider it a little retreat every day. That’s how I’d like you to think of my new FREE gift to you, A Daily Planner for the Well-Lived Life.
I personally am not a big fan of planning ahead. I’m an INFP on the Myers-Briggs test, and I’m told planning ahead is just not in my personality. Last spring, when I was planning our family’s big summer vacation to the National Parks, I nearly broke out in hives having to schedule campground and hotel stays months in advance. I hate doing that! I love to go with the flow, see what’s around the next corner, stay a while longer in a place we love, etc.
Turns out, it was good to plan some of that trip in advance. Some things even seemed a bit *divinely guided*. When our car’s air conditioner broke down in the 100 degree Montana heat (definitely unplanned), we were quite amazed that the night’s campground destination was literally right.next.door to the Honda dealer. How’s that for synchronicity? It was definitely ‘meant to be’, as we could have chosen a completely different highway on which to travel across Montana but nope, I’d planned on *this* one.
But I digress from the topic. My planner is not so much a planning tool as a pondering tool. It’s meant to get you somewhere, but not meant to make you busier.
One thing I know for sure is that very few of us need more to do. You’ll notice that after the first question, “What are today’s important tasks?”, there are only five blank lines to fill in. How can anyone have more than 5 important tasks to accomplish in one day? Really, we should think about that one.
