    Overview of Current Systems -- Hobonichi & Beyond

    To give you an idea of my typical planning toolbox, today's episode features a planner 'walk through' of the Hobonichi Techo Cousin planner system and the accessories I love to use with it it. Discussions include using calendar pages for tracking, time blocking, and daily planning. There's also a mention of a few of my favorite (and not-so-favorite) digital tools. At the time of this episode's recording I was experimenting with a bullet journal. I enjoy that approach so more on that in the future.

Love Planning Details!

So helpful to hear all of your planning details. Loved the Weekly Review episode. Can’t wait to hear more!

I love this show!

I’ve been a huge fan of Sarah and Laura Vanderkam’s podcast, “Best of Both Worlds”, as well as Sarah’s blog, and was excited to hear that she had a new, solo podcast that would be all about planning. The show doesn’t disappoint! For about two seconds after I started listening to the first episode, I wondered if it was weird that I would be listening to a podcast about planning and planners, of all things, but I was quickly swept into her enthusiasm and love of all things planning. I started using the Hobonichi a little over a year ago after first hearing about it on Sarah’s blog, and now I’m obsessed with my Techo Cousin. It’s lovely to be able to join a community of fellow planner lovers, and Sarah does such a great job of breaking down how she plans her weeks, months, and quintiles, inspiring me with new Ideas on how to juggle all the responsibilities I have and prioritize what matters most to me and my family.

Highly recommended for anyone who loves planning and productivity, but especially for ambitious professional women who know that family and careers can co-exist and give us lots of joy and fulfillment.

For planning lovers!

I recently discovered Sarah and Laura’s podcast Best of Both Worlds so I thought I would give this one a try, and I love it, too!
