Make time to plan in 2021

One of the best things about a new year is opening that new calendar, journal or planner. Or, if you are like me, you have one of each, LOL. So let’s make time to plan in 2021, and then we will have more time to quilt!

New year, new dreams

When I have a specific goal to accomplish (like writing a book), I turn to the Freedom Journal as my daily planner.

The daily prompts help you set intentions in the morning, and reflect on your day in the evening. This journal also includes reminders to focus on gratitude, which brings more positivity into your day.

Make time to plan

I use a basic composition book for most of my journaling. This composition book becomes my constant companion so it is a catch-all of my to-do lists, weekly brain dumps, and occasional reflections on my personal and business decisions. I find mornings are my best time for journaling. I have been pushing myself to add an evening reflection period as well. Setting aside specific times to journal and reflect makes it easier to see the progress you are making towards your goal. The new year is a common time to plan and set goals, but I encourage you to reserve time monthly or at least quarterly to review as well.

There is no pressure from me to make resolutions, just goodwill wishes for a happy and healthy 2021!
