Q: "How do you manage a 12-month outlook with a 90-day planner? Do you do that electronically?" - Louise B.
A: I get this question a lot!
G-cal catches all my appointments.
The Savor Life Planner organizes my gorgeous chaos. In other words, it's my mindset mentor.
G-cal keeps my team and me organized time-wise: make appointments, plan ahead for vacations, and carve out important dates.
The planner helps me reflect on who I am and my bigger vision, create a 90-Day Vision, and execute with daily tasks.
I have big long game goals, a mission, and a personal statement.
I also know that big dreams change and shift over time, which is why I prefer to think in 90 days.
Fast Company once interviewed me about why 90-day goals are better than year-long ones.
My answer: 90 days is not too long so you can see an end in sight.
It's also not that short so you can actually gain traction.
After doing 90-day reflection questions, you can reset quickly and fail fast in order to succeed in the long run.
An example of a 90-day vision is our Nolita Face Cake Bar Pop-up! (Come visit us until March 25 at 251 Elizabeth Street!)
The big goal is to open up our fourth location in NYC.
Trying out different neighborhoods with pop-up experiences in Manhattan is a perfect little goal.
Once you have your big dreams in mind and your 90-Day Vision in front of you, my favorite part is resetting week after week.
Last week with the launch of our pop-up, I felt off-kilter, a bit crazed, and all over the place.
Ever feel like that? It's okay! Reset on Sundays!
This Sunday afternoon, I'll be creating my week's vision, brain-dumping what I need to do, checking my G-cal, and creating the daily plan.
Will you pull out your planner, grab a cup of coffee, and join me?
Here's to Self-care Sundays (because planning IS self-care!)
