Planning and Organization

I’ve always been a planner. When I was in my teens, my first little datebooks were the free pocket calendars that the Hallmark stores gave away at the end of the year. Over the years I’ve read countless organization and time management books, tried a variety of systems, and settled into those that worked for me. I discovered that simple routines make life easier, and saying “no” can save your sanity. Here are a few articles about various aspects of planning and making time for things that matter. I hope you’ll find them helpful!
