You shouldn’t be surprised when you read this, but…my top self-care tool prepping for a launch is my planner.
Yup – like I said, no shocker.
I look at the process of planning kind of like it’s writing in a journal. In fact, for me, planning is one of my deepest actions of self-care.
Over this past year, I’ve realized how “planning” even by writing what happened or what you want to happen and how you want to feel as you’re doing those things you’re planning…they matter.
I don’t usually come across quite as woo-woo as I might be today. But I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot recently.
It’s also the reason I want to share my #1 self-care tool which launched recently.
But whether you’re launching or just working on your daily business tasks, you need this.
Today's episode is about my #1 self care tool that I use every day and rely on heavily as I start working on launches (even other peoples).
The 2017 Desire Map Planner Collection is here! It’s a radically different way to plan your day, because it puts your soul on the agenda…not just your launch emails or your next webinar.
Now – like I said, my days are often filled with creating launch plans – the what, the how, the strategy, the team. This may seem like a black and white task. But after working with many entrepreneurs on their own plans, I realized that there’s something deeper that happens and something that can shift just from the act of putting pen to paper and planning it out.
Not only that – my own coaches and accountability partners started asking me more about how I wanted to feel as I was working on these launches and launch plans.
This is where the 2017 Desire Map Planner comes into play and becomes my planner-slash self-care tool at play.
No more will I just do the black and white plan. The numbers and excel sheet breakdown.
Now, I’ve got a tool to use as a companion to all the to do’s and tasks!
This planner puts your desires on the map, and helps you plan your days and weeks according to how you most want to feel. The way it should be. Where most day planner systems are straight dates and to do’s, this planner is so much more…
Based on the wildly popular book and workbook by Danielle LaPorte, The Desire Map, this planner system incorporates your soul and your to-do list; your gratitude and your goals; your deepest desires with your day-to-day.
The 2017 planner comes with two versions, the Daily and Weekly edition, for the any type of planner person:
The DAILY planner for the highly scheduled, detailed thinkers, and awesome A-types who love keeping track of all the big and little things. This planner takes you through the year day by day, with unique soul prompts to limber up your mind before you write, scheduling space, #Truthbombs, a Stop Doing list (because saying no is revolutionary) and a super condensed list called 3 Things (yes just like our top 3 I love to set!) so you can get your most important to-dos done.The WEEKLY planner is for the big dreamers, Creatives, and entrepreneurs — the planner-types who want a bird’s eye view of their week. Sprinkled with prompts for positive declarations and #Truthbombs, the weekly spread also has space for your Core Desired Feelings, daily to-do’s, and a list of 3 Things so you can get your most important to-dos done. This planner also has an End of Week Check-in with unique Soul Prompts from Danielle and space for reflecting on life as you move through it week by week.
(Note, I’m using this weekly planner myself – because I generally do more of the micromanaging in my business and like to leave a lot of space in the rest of my life, this gives me a much needed weekly check in to set the barometer, the feelings, and my intentions for the week).
When you’re clear on how you want to feel, decisions come to you more easily, you’ll know when to say “No” and when to say “Hell, YES!” And then you can put it in writing. That’s what this planner does for me.
You can buy yours today and start planning the life you’ve always wanted.
And if you’ve already got a planner or a journal that you love…I still challenge you to start including yourself, the way you feel and your personal soul-metrics and not just how many new Instagram followers you have and making planning a ritual.
