Can you believe that 2020 is now banging on the door!
You’re probably figuring out how to kick off the year right, deciding on what projects you’re looking forward to working on? What better way to do that than to invest in a project planner that’ll inspire you not only to get your stuff done—but to help you stay on track with your plans.
For the past 12 months, I have been combining a classic happy planner; logging all my daily tracking with an Excel spreadsheet to keep myself motivated and focused on my projects for the year.
So how to stay on track
It is a real eye-opener when you start looking at your progress as a whole on a spreadsheet. Where you can see at-a-glance what you have achieved to-date and where some of your projects might be being neglected.
I check the tracker and when I see a neglected project, I ask myself the questions….. Is this to be a UFO project? or do I make this a focus piece next month?
Happy Planner/spreadsheet or both?
I love to have my Classic happy planner sat by my stitching-spot so that it is at hand to quickly jot down what I have stitched on, what threads I need or notes and idea’s as I think of them. It is always a good idea to have your planner to hand when you’re watching Flosstube – just for that enabling moment…. We all have them!
The thing that really keeps me on track is my excel spreadsheet that allows me to see everything for the month with trend bars and the overview for the year.
Knowing how important it is to have your plans and to be able to see if you’re staying on track, I thought I would share my spreadsheet with those who make be interested.
This spreadsheet is great if; like me, you just want to make sure all your projects are getting some of your time and love and to see at a glance your finishes and where you might be neglecting a project or two.
