Do you ever find that no matter how diligent you are in making (+ sticking to) to do lists, they seem to get longer each week? This week’s post provides a simple weekly planning sheet that you can modify to your needs.
After a particularly busy few months of overwhelming task lists, sliding timelines, and
missed stretched deadlines, I’ve been feeling a bit discouraged and felt the need to shake up my task management routine.
In the past I’ve utilized project management tools like BaseCamp, Asana, Monday, ClickUp and many others, but none of them have ever really stuck for more than a season or two. Some have worked well for a particular project or with a particular client, but the end result is a graveyard of user accounts that each hold a sliver of my work history.
This moment in time requires something simpler. So this morning I MacGyver’d a solution using a couple of my favorite tools and am sharing it with you in case you are in a similar spot of just needing a starting place to focus your time and attention.
Weekly Planning Sheet
This weekly planning sheet was created in Canva and then converted into a fillable-PDF file. You can access both versions here:
- Fillable PDF file: download this version to print if you’re a pen-to-paper person or if you prefer a paperless approach; it will work great both ways!
- Canva template: if you’re a Canva user, click this link to make a copy of the template in your account, then modify the sheet as you wish and download your customized version as a PDF
In my case, I took things one step further and imported the PDF into my reMarkable tablet where I’ve created a folder in which I’ll create and track my activities with a new planning sheet each week.
So if you’re a list-maker, too, and feeling a bit overwhelmed – give this planning sheet a try! If you do use it and find it helpful, I’d love to hear about it. And if you use the Canva template, it would be fun to see how you customize it to meet your needs.
