One of the things that we, as planners, try to do is track our ‘self-care’. Whether it’s finding an hour a week to do something special for yourself, like I do in my “Finding Fifty Two Challenge”, or going out of your way to do something nice for yourself, we all love to talk about...

Clearing out my closet & my past…
For many folks who have Netflix, the world of Kon Mari has been cracked wide open. For the planner world, she's someone we have followed since she came out with her book a few years ago "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of decluttering and organizing. In my 2019 Goals, (which I... Continue Reading →
As I round out my birthday week, which I affectionately call "AmyPalooza" I find myself wanting to do another birthday to birthday challenge for myself.

On Sundays I usually swim, ride and run on the same day, doing a pseudo triathlon,... Continue Reading →
Back to my comfort zone…and my Hobonichi’s.
I know many of you out there gave #OneBookJuly a whirl and while I did follow through with my plan for the month of July, I am so happy to be back in the comfort of my Hobonichi planners. I wrapped up July and put away my personal size Filofax Finsbury with a great sigh... Continue Reading →
Don’t Count the Days…Make the Days Count!
As most of you who follow my blog know, I am an avid data tracker. So NOT counting days is a very foreign concept to me overall. However, when I heard this quote from Mohammad Ali yesterday, it stuck with me. So much so, I had to look it up once I got home a... Continue Reading →
