A Model for Yearly Planning

The year gets away from us too easily. I picked up a good tip from Danielle Steel: Each year plan where you want to be and when around events you care about.

Kids’ birthdays, important conferences, yearly get-aways, spousal “remember, we love each other?” time, etc.

Even if you just simply put the “already known non-negotiables” down ā€” birthdays, conferences, holidays ā€” you’ll be better off than most folks.

But if you can go one step more and bring a kind of artfulness to your year. Instead of letting the year man-handle you, you can partner with Google Calendar to design it a bit more, be intentional, more of a mover than a shaker.
