One of my new favorite blogs to surf is Carrie’s. She has an enthusiasm for life that is contagious. Recently I was reading through her older posts and found this post about her Franklin Planner system. If you are a Franklin girl and a FlyGirl like me, you will understand my enthusiasm! You see, I have been in the Franklin “cult” since the early 90s, picked up the FLY system for housekeeping in the early 2000s. I was never successful in combining the two so seeing Carrie’s idea got me sooooo excited that I immediately revamped my planner!
They travel with me everyday to help keep me on schedule.
I don’t use the Daily Compass since I learned how to Plan the original Franklin way, but I have a ton of the sheets. As I was getting ready to toss them in the trash I realized that they are lined on the back side! I took one and put my monthly goals (To-dos) on it. Then I put it in my old PageFinder, the partial page-size one that comes with the planner refills every year, and I inverted it so the tab is at the bottom of my planner. Now I have my goals traveling with me everyday… giving me a prompt to get something important done when I have a spare minute.
This new way of Franklin Flying (as I have dubbed the combo of Franklin Planning and FlyLady Organization) has really changed my life! I am able to stick to my schedule and I have marked tons of things off my to-do list that otherwise went undone. I feel so productive and organized!
