A VERY SIMPLE PROJECT PLANNING TEMPLATE

December 28, 2017

Planning gets fun when you have the right tools. Here is the most simple technique. Just pen, paper and a bit of attention. I use this to create action plans for my own projects. 

 

+ it takes an hour

+ saves me lots of hours later

+ keeps me on the path

+ keeps procrastination away 

 

Create your ultimate get-done task calendar in 5+ simple steps.

 

 

HOW IT IS DONE: 

 

0. Prepare paper & colour pens
1. Redraw or download & print the calendar template
2. Add dates
3. Mark the special day
4. Add major milestones
4.1. (optional) 10min Get Done List brainstorm
5. Fill the rest of the days in between

 

 

 

HOW TO MAKE THE ULTIMATE GET-DONE TASK CALENDAR?

___

 

 

 

0. Prepare paper & colour pens
 

You might prefer good-old-whatever-brand-regular-pen and make it all one colour.  But.. if you want to go PRO this time 2-3 colours are the best. Why? Easier to navigate when the calendar is filled. Choose one colour for dates, second for main task every day, third for extra notes.  

 

 

1. Redraw or download & print the calendar template

(Mon-Sun or Sun-Sat view, 5 or 6 rows)


Why 6 rows? Sometimes you just need 6. When 1st starts on Friday and there are 31 days on the month. Or if you just need more days to squeeze in.
