I Have a Plan

I have a plan for the rest of my life. Retirement goals. Organizing of finances. Putting together last will and Testament. That kind of stuff. Multiple plans. But I found it overwhelming to organize my life. I got to do it. Because I'm turning 46 in another week and I got to get my shit together. I tried using Google Drive for different documents but I found I needed how to write stuff down on paper in books and stuff. But still use Google Calendar.

So this is my system...
1. The white spiral-bound notebook is where I write down stuff I have to do day-to-day. I make that list a couple days before.
2. The book with the Planet Fitness decal on it is where I write down my goals and accomplishments for the gym.
3. The black book with the snap clasp on it is my journal. I write down what happened during the day. And if I have any profound thoughts I write them in that. I also use similar worlds fairly liberally, and you can see from my previous posts.
4. I keep my long-term plans written down in my green book. About 13 items in here so far. I divide up the pages with index tabs. And I've dedicated about 5 pages for each tab. I'm allowing growing room. Because I know I'll add additional stuff.

Interesting topic, apparently my mother tore a strip off my partner when I wasn't in the room demanding that if I die she had to get out of the house! Hang on one cotton picking minute I'm the youngest and in the best shape of the lot of you! I should write a will as my life is complicated and I foresee an ungodly scrum for the few items of value I have (and the house).
