It’s been over a month since I did one of these, and it shows, because there’s many areas of my life that are showing cracks. These weekly planning sessions always help me clean out the junk in my mind. By writing it down, I get a visualization of what’s going on up there. So as I sit down at Downtown Jeaux, listening to Awaken, My Love!, I’ll get a better idea of what’s coming up.
The first thing I needed to do was count all the loose cash I had in my backpack. Roommate (brother) has been giving me money for bills, and I’ve been throwing it in my bag and paying the bill online. Now that I know how much cash I have, I can subtract that amount from the cost of the rent and pull the rest out of the ATM, and then pay the landlord.
Next, I went to Simple.com (my bank account) and looked at what I’ve been up to, to make sure all of my bills are accounted for, and that I’m not over-spending. With all the traveling I’ve been doing lately, it’s easy to lose track of my budget.
Afterwards, I went into OmniFocus to plan out all my tasks, goals, and everything that I want my future self to look like. I checked off everything that was complete, deleted projects that were no longer relevant, and then I opened up the inbox and did a brain-dump, letting go of every thought, and leaving it all in the inbox. I’ll organize those later, with due dates, and filing them away in the proper category.
