Journal vs Planner
Plus a quote on success from Pablo Picasso
Today we’ll talk about the difference between journals and planners. And in side B, I’ll show you how to get started down this path with just a piece of paper. Share your thoughts with the other 450 Creatives who read this newsletter by leaving a comment :) - Let’s go!
Get 2 books.
1 for the Chaos. Every idea every plan dream, ambition, business idea, book idea…put it in the one for Chaos. - This is your Journal.
1 of Order. How are you actually going to make all that happen? What will you do this year, month, week, day hour. - This is your planner.
It will take time and practice to use a journal and a planner. But your ability to do so is such a powerful life skill. And if you look at the lives of the people you admire, don’t be surprised if you find that they have high competency in these skills.
Here is a hacky way to get started today. Get a piece of paper and draw a line across the middle. On the top of the left column write, “To do”. On the right column write “ideas”
If it can be done in under 2 hours, write it as an action in the left column.
Write, an email
Go, to a thing
Run, 2 miles
Things like that.
Write everything else in the right column.
Spend 95% of your time doing the things in the left column.
Action is the foundational key to all success - Pablo Picasso
